Them Crooked Vultures: S/T - 11/17/09



Them Crooked Vultures:

01 No One Loves Me & Neither Do I
02 Mind Eraser, No Chaser
03 New Fang
04 Dead End Friends
05 Elephants
06 Scumbag Blues
07 Bandoliers
08 Reptiles
09 Interlude With Ludes
10 Warsaw or the First Breath You Take After You Give Up
11 Caligulove
12 Gunman
13 Spinning in Daffodils

from pitchfork:

Ever since the triple-headed stomp-rock supergroup Them Crooked Vultures whirled into existence, we've been keeping up with just about every little scrap of whomp-ass they've released into the world.

Finally, on November 17, Dave Grohl, Josh Homme, and John Paul Jones will leave the shadows and come into the light. That's when their self-titled debut album will finally hit North American shelves, via DGC/Interscope. (It's out November 16 in the UK on Columbia.)

We've got the tracklist below, but all you really need to know is that Dave Grohl is back behind the drums and that there's a song called "Mind Eraser, No Chaser":

I heard one track live, New Fang, I think, and they sounded good. I'll likely pick this up if BB has it for $9.99.

Saw them in Detroit a few weeks ago and JPJ was so awesome. They all were, actually, but JPJ played several different types of guitars and keyboards. He friggin' rocked the keytar out. Sounded great.

Saw the Nashville show a few weeks ago and it was amazing. Never thought I'd be able to see JPJ perform live from 10 feet away and Grohl's performance was jaw-dropping. Hope the album is as good as the live show!

Just got an email for a free download via iTunes of Mind Eraser, No Chaser as a "thank you" for buying tickets to one of the US shows. Awesome!

But they said it was a special thank you! I guess the special part was them providing me the link.

Now I have nothing....except that I saw their first show ever. I'll have to die with that.

Looks like they're streaming the entire album via YouTube. Awesome.

I heard this thing leaked already.

Has anyone heard it and what are the thoughts on the album as a whole?

I've been listening to this all afternoon, and it gets better every time. Can't recommend it enough.

Bump...surprised there hasn't been much talk about this one here since it came out this week. I stopped by Best Buy on Wednesday to pick it up but they were sold out. Of course they had what looked like a hundred copies of the new John Mayer collecting dust, lol. I ended up downloading it from amazon since it was only $7.99.

What kind of bit rate does Amazon offer the download in? I wouldn't do it unless it was 320 k/s

Huge let down for me. Was really hoping this album would be great. I don't even like one song.

Some cool-sounding riffs, but no really memorable songs. Considering the personel involved, I had expected more.

I'm a bit underwhelmed my first time through. Will give it a few more chances though. Some of my favorite albums of all time, I was underwhelmed with initially.

Ya know, I just don't get this album. I just don't. Aside from Reptiles, Caligulove, & Spinnin in Daffodils.....this is album is pretty terrible and the three songs mentioned I like average at best.

I blame this on Homme - his sound is dominant on the album and it amazes me that he was even able to work with John Paul Jones - was John just kicking back while this was being made?

Homme also bombed out with the last qotsa album (era vulgaris)

I gave this album many, many, listens thinking I was missing something but I wasn't - it's just a big let down.

The album is very Homme. If you don't like him, you probably won't like this IMO. I happen to think Vulgaris is a fantastic album, so eh...to each his own.

The thing for me is that I've loved every qotsa album with the exceptions being vulgaris and Songs for the deaf.

He's on some kind of wacky trip with his sound and I'm just not digging it.

I know to each is own....I'm big on saying that as well - I'm mainly just frustrated because it's so damn hard to find good music in this genre nowadays.
