Queens of the Stone Age
Californian rockers bring their 7th album, and stick to the format which has worked for them for so many years. The album starts off with a track which wouldn’t have been out of place on a Bowie album and sets the pace for the rest of the album. Apart from the occasional burst of ZZ Top inspired rock-outs this album is more Bowie than anything else which obviously isn’t a bad feel, but it doesn’t feel very fresh, and all the tracks feel familiar even on the first listen. There aren’t any stand out tracks for me, but if I had to choose one it would be Head Like a Haunted House.
