New single shares the sleazy infectious groove style of Smooth Sailing. Best direction for the band to go further in, I'm loving stoked.

I was going to say that I liked this song better when it was called Smooth Sailing. The new single is just a boring version of said song. The terrible production isn't helping it much either. I'm not digging it at all.

I was kinda meh on the single yesterday, but I've played it a few times while running errands and it's growing on me.

Also the definitive ranking of QOTSA albums:

1. Queens of the Stone Age
1. R
1. Songs for the Deaf
1. Lullabies to Paralyze
1. Era Vulgaris
1. ...Like Clockwork

I can't say I'm a fan of the production on the new track, but new QOTSA is far better than no QOTSA.

Songs For The Deaf will always be their #1 album for me. It's the perfect balance between Josh and Nick, and Dave is a beast on drums.

Sir Lemming posted:

I think at this point the rift between him and John is a bigger deal than the Nick thing, which from the sound of things was basically over by the end of 2005. I recall Nick saying positive things about Era Vulgaris, and of course then he ended up doing a guest spot on Like Clockwork, which in typical QOTSA fashion was basically inaudible.

Yeah, bridging the divide between Homme and Garcia will take some serious work. I can't recall reading any recent statements by Josh about John, but John trashes Josh every time he's asked about him.

You can see and hear the tension if you watch any live footage from the last days of Kyuss. John was wasted a lot of the time and acting like a total dick to the audiences.

Agreed, although I'd put Clockwork at #1, and bump Songs for the Deaf to #1

Really annoyed with the service they used for purchasing tickets for this show. I pre-ordered the album THEN signed up to their pre-registration site, was placed in the queue that's 1 hour later than people who pre-ordered the album. Their FAQ said to wait 24 hours before emailing them so I did. Emailed them, they asked for a screenshot of my page on the website and of my order confirmation. I check the site last night and it says I am now locked in position 2, so there's little possibility of me getting the seats I was willing to spend way too much money to get, all because of an error in their system. I'm waiting to see if they'll email me back before Tuesday but I doubt it.

new single was I think referred to as the "poppiest" song on the album so that's good news to anyone who thought it was too jingly.

I remember before Like Clockwork came out, I read advance reviews of it from "hardcore" fans on the official forums, In The Fade or some poo poo like that, and it was like a funeral dirge of "this album is so incredibly bad it's all slow poo poo and piano poo poo"

now it's like the same thing except "this poo poo is too catchy, it's too happy, rip qotsa" like how did anyone even survive the move from Rated R to Songs for the Deaf to Lullabies to Paralyze, they've changed so much but still have that same core sound.

It's a piece of JUNK!

I do wonder what it must've felt like when Rated R came out, it was really a massive detour from the much more straightforward, unpolished rock sound of the self-titled album. All the other stylistic shifts they've done almost look safe by comparison.

I always liked Alain better on bass/everything to be honest. I really loved the small timespan when Alain/Natasha were doing live shows, they did some great work on the Lullabies songs.

Just got tickets to see them at MSG. Man, I remember when I saw them in a sweaty Terminal 5 show doing their self-titled album tour, now they're finally at the big time. So loving stoked to see this.

I was just winding down from listening to Peace, Love, and Death Metal on a daily basis when Lullabies to Paralyze came out.

To this day I couldn't believe how lucky I felt watching EODM opening for QOTSA in Denver. Without a doubt, my favorite concert ever.

New song is good, maybe a little too pop for my tastes, and it lacks a cool short riff like during Smooth Sailing, but that will do anyway. Can't wait for the new album.

Closest I got to a "Josh and Friends" show was at Barclays when The Kills (with a 6 person drumline) and Brody Dalle opened for them, which was pretty neat.

sounds like it could have easily been a song from Them Crooked Vultures 2. A lot of this album feels like it's going to take that turn for some reason and I'm A-OK with that

Saw em at Montebello Rockfest on Saturday and they played a great, if short set. Nothing from the self titled, but heavy on SFTD and LC which are my two favorite albums. Josh also played Speaking in Tongues on drums for EODM earlier in the day, which was a nice surprise.

Got 4 floor tickets for the Boston show for me and my three friends that have seen em together the last...4 times they've been in the area, super pumped. Their last tour with the Kills was loving phenomenal (and I love the Kills too, which helped) so I've got high expectations for another music duo to fill an entire arena as an opener. QOTSA is one of the few bands I could listen to a 25 song set from and STILL want more.

I was really happy they played I Never Came on that tour and saw that, also once caught Fun Machine at another show. I hope they start busting out obscure poo poo at the MSG show. I'd love something like Another Love Song or even 3's and 7's, which I actually haven't heard in a long time--used to be a set regular but feels like it gets phased out now.

I just hope to get Avon this go around after missing it last go around. It's actually one of the only songs where I'll check out a live version. I think it's 02/03 w Grohl at Glastonbury. Dave just destroys that solo.

Infinity and Born To Hula are some of my favorite tracks they've ever done, and I don't mind that they're not on an album because they don't feel like they'd belong to any, they're just their own things.

Incidentally, the re-recording of Infinity, which was on some reissues of Lullabies, is awful. In an effort to make it new & different they pretty much changed all the cool parts. On the other hand, I vastly prefer the revamped Born To Hula.

All The Same was literally the first time I ever heard Josh Homme, loved it, and years later when I got into Songs for the Deaf was blown away that this was the same guy. I still think that song was one of his best works, wish he'd pull it out someday but this is a band that rarely does deep cuts.

Their cover of Never Say Never is also loving incredible.
