This is an awesome collection of tunes, totally diverse but sticking to the same mystical theme all the way through. Josh Homme has called in some very talented people this time around to aid him in his quest, specifically Alain Johannes & Natasha Schneider from Eleven, who contribute to the best tunes on here. 'Up in Hell' sounds like a rocked out medieval chant, 'Polly wants a Crack Rock' is as menacing and twisted as the title sounds, 'Nenada' sounds like Thin Lizzy singing a Hebrew mantra - I'm making it sound weird but trust me its all good stuff, better than the last Queens album in terms of originality and atmosphere which is a bold statement indeed. And I've saved the last part of this for 'Making a Cross', which is one of the most moving, atmospheric tunes that I've heard in a long while, it builds up from a beautiful accoustic piece into an epic fuzzed out jam, its absolutely fantastic. Buy this album, it will amaze you!
