…Like Clockwork.

A new Queens of the Stone Age album including Dave Grohl, Elton John and Arctic Monkey Alex Turner. I won’t say that I don’t have to listen to it to tell that it’s a great album, because I’m sure any David Bowie or Mick Jagger fan would find it somehow depressingly ironic and amusing, but unsuprisingly, this album is pretty awesome. Tracks like ‘Keep your Eyes Peeled’ and ‘My God is the Sun’ gives strong evidence that the band are finally back to their original roots, like back when they had written Queens of the Stone Age and Rated R. They’ve always specialised in this somewhat alluring, eerie 70’s future dystophia, which is greatly emphasised on Like Clockwork.
I generally like what they’ve done on this album, although I wasn’t too fond on the drumming (sorry, Grohl, it really wasn’t you at all). I’d give it roughly an 8/10. Nothing more, nothing less.
