Customer Review

on 30 December 2009
Ok,so to start with, I'm not gonna mention THAT album (apart from just then). Seriously though, 5 years in the world of music is a long time. The only real constant since then has been Homme himself, who seems to grow with confidence and audacity as a composer with each release.

Take the opener, turn on the screw. The trademark gush of guitars is there, but timed to perfection with joshes' groaning(in a good way) and the static drumming. Which means that I don't mind when it breaks down into the same guitar solo and the same abrupt finish that seems more at homme on livelier tracks. what follows is nothing short of a monster of a track, (which I won't describe since thousands of reviewers will have focused on it previously) but even that finds its' match here. A choice track could be the eerily good 'into the hollow' or singles 'make it wit chu' and '3's and 7's'. Despite the air of disappointment surrounding the album, I find myself glaring at the fools expecting sftd 2. If that album was a trip cross the desert, and lullabies a haunting grimm fairy tale, then this album is nothing of the sort. qotsa seem to have captured the essence of life in a 50's power station (not like I'd know), and that suits me just fine.

Don't believe the doubters. Find it. Buy it. Love it.
