I came up with several dozen reasons for not reviewing this single, most of which were variations on 'they're sh**e', 'bring back Kyuss', 'bring back the weirdy beardy bloke' and 'only decent album was their debut'. Hence the long delay between receiving said disc and listening to it.
And, lo and behold, I've actually come up with two good reasons for buying it! Two more than I anticipated.
1) It's the best Masters Of Reality (band, not album) impersonation ever. Right down to the tremelous vocal and out of time rhythm. And, as you all know, Masters Of Reality rock!
2) Billy Gibbons out of ZZ Top plays lead guitar on it - and there aren't enough Billy Gibbons lead guitar parts these days, what with him being 100 years old.
So, there you go, QOTSA have turned into Masters Of ZZ Topreality, and are all the better for it.
