Good but not great.,
This review is from: Them Crooked Vultures (Audio CD)
It's so difficult to review this record when, if like me, you love QOTSA, the Foo Fighters and Led Zep. All amazing bands with varied, but consistently brilliant out put.
This, in theory should be a cast iron classic, but for me it slips into the lazier side of Josh Hommes output. Over long songs, fairly tried and tested style and maybe two or three stand out songs that don't quite do enough. Yes the playing is excellent, you'd expect as much, but the songs just don't break new ground from their existing bands.
As a completist fan of QOTSA, I'd say go for it, but don't expect it to change the world.
