QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE Reactie op de recensie van ‘Nick Catucci’ (Rolling Stone) op het nieuwe album ‘Like Clockwork’ van de Queens of the Stone Age.
Recensie By Nick CatucciNick Catucci Is there a more debonair dirtball in rock than Josh Homme? The Queens of the Stone Age frontman is the high priest of grimy rock tradition, exalting in exquisitely wrought guitar scraping and wry machismo – whether with his main gig or in side bands like the Dave Grohl collaboration Them Crooked Vultures. For the Queens' sixth album, their sole continuous member has the band at full power, with Grohl drumming on five of 10 tracks, former members Nick Oliveri and Mark Lanegan pitching in, and eye-catching, yet unobtrusive, guest spots from Trent Reznor, Scissor Sisters' Jake Shears, Arctic Monkeys' Alex Turner and Elton John – who, fabulously, volunteered as "an actual queen."Queens of the Stone AgeArctic MonkeysElton John Make no mistakes, though:... Like Clockwork still runs on Homme's grizzled-dude- against-the-world intensity; he'll quaff a "potion to erase you," and he compares people to "crashing ships in the night." The track featuring Sir Elton's vocals and piano, with Grohl on skins? It's a deliciously greasy complaint called "Fairweather Friends." If you're looking for something aspirational, check out "If I Had a Tail," a perv's anthem in which Homme deploys his best movie-villain voice. And let's just say that the bad-vibes ballad "The Vampyre of Time and Memory" earns its gothick spelling. Yet for all his demon-steed drive, Homme's a versatile guy – he coos as persuasively as he howls, and few can rain down metal decay with as much nuance and craft. http://www.rollingstone.com/music/albumreviews/like-clockwork-20130604
Reactie “…the high priest of grimy rock tradition..” klopt gelijk al goed. De vieze basgitaar en slepende zanglijnen vegen je door het album heen. Heerlijk vuig, dat kan ook haast niet anders met Josh Homme. Verder zegt Nick nog “Homme’s a versatile guy” dat is 100% waar. De zanger sleept lekker, huilt soms wat hogere noten en past zich snel aan. (bijv. te horen in het couplet van ‘I sat by the ocean’) tussen de nummers verschilt het ook nog stevig, het nummer dat na ‘I sat by the ocean’ (een lekker rock) volgt, is een zwijmelige grimmige balad ‘the vampyre of time and memory’.
