Queens Of The Stone Age Release ...Like Clockwork
17 Jun 2013 - Nic Ho Chee
Finally listened to the new Queens of the Stone Age release "...Like Clockwork" and I have to say its pretty special. The tracks aren't as catchy as on "Songs for the Deaf", but it has the feel that it could be their "Dark Side of The Moon".
Amazing dynamic range in the tracks, amazing production. Has extra work from amongst others Dave Grohl, Trent Reznor and Elton John (who apparently phoned Josh Homme and told him he "needed an actual queen on the record!") There isn't a track on the album that feels like filler, i'm sure this is one of those albums that people will still be playing in thirty years time.
Immense, lush, haunting, have it on Spotify but going to buy myself an actual copy to own it. Strongly recommend.
