Re: Queens of the Stone Age - "Villains" 8/25/17

I spun this a couple times and, while it's good, I thought Clockwork was better.

I'll prob grab the regular vinyl edition this weekend. Not a big fan of the indie cover.

I like the two singles, have the record ordered on Amazon.

One of my favorite bands, looking forward to it.

I thought "Them Crooked Vultures" was better than Clockwork. I know technically it wasn't a Queens album but it certainly sounded like it.

Love this record. Un-Reborn Again is probably my favorite track, but I don't think there are any songs I don't like.

Only listened to the first half but rock solid so far. I loved Like Clockwork.

It's good, solid all the way through, but not as stellar as Like Clockwork, which is IMO their best album.

Re: Queens of the Stone Age - "Villains" 8/25/17

So I only dislike 3 songs on this album, tracks 3 (but I'm on the fence with this one), 5, and 9. People are making such a big deal about the album closer (Villains of Circumstance I think it's called?) I think it's a horrible, boring song.

Glad to see they tried something different her because they needed it, I don't even own any of their previous albums - like clockwork showed some promise but overall fell flat.

This was a nice surprise from a band I almost gave up on.

Re: Queens of the Stone Age - "Villains" 8/25/17

My QOTSA album ranking!

1. Rated R*
2. Like Clockwork
3. Them Crooked Vultures**
4. Songs for the Deaf
5. Villains
6. Lullabies to Paralyze
7. Era Vulgaris
8. self-titled

*I was an OG Kyuss fan, but didn't discover QOTSA until Rated R, so that was my intro to the band, so a very subjective #1.
**I consider TCV to be a QOTSA album. I mean, Homme unlike his other side-projects, wrote all the songs, sings and plays guitars. Jones and Grohl were essentially the same hired hands like he gets for QOTSA albums.

Re: Queens of the Stone Age - "Villains" 8/25/17

I like the album, more upbeat than the last one .. and really one of the reasons I like this band, the albums have some variation.


Ranking (and I agree with TCV essentially being a QOTSA album)

1. Songs for the Deaf
2. Them Crooked Vultures**
3. Era Vulgari
4. Like Clockwork
5. Rated R*
6. Villains
7. Lullabies to Paralyze
8. self-titled

Sadly, like I did with clockwork, I've already stopped listening to this album and have moved on.

Re: Queens of the Stone Age - "Villains" 8/25/17

I'm gonna have to give this a spin on one of those digital service sites (Amazon or Spotify), because everyone is going wild over this record. Granted, I always liked their first album, but lost track after. I know they were friends with the Kyuss and Fu Manchu guys, so I may already like QOTSA's evolved sound.

I like this even more on a second listen. Still not quite to the level of Clockwork, but a damn good record.

Re: Queens of the Stone Age - "Villains" 8/25/17

^ Ditto. Took me a few spins to get into the groove but I am very much into it. There isn't a single song I would skip. Agreed it isn't quite Clockwork but for them to make something even close is still an accomplishment.

Re: Queens of the Stone Age - "Villains" 8/25/17

Kind of forcing myself to listen to it more at this point. I wanted to mention as well due to slop101's post....I hear ya on the subjective thing, Lullabies would be the album for me, I know, definitely not the greatest by any means but so many memories with that album playing in the background whether it be at parties, driving around - many memories.

Re: Queens of the Stone Age - "Villains" 8/25/17

I'm surprised people have the debut listed so low since I think their first 3 albums are very solid. Post Oliveri, I enjoy Like Clockwork the most. The others are ok, but have a lot of forgettable material. Villains isn't bad, but I'm not a fan of "The Way You Used to Do".

If you wanna get this on vinyl, splurge a little and get the deluxe edition. The mastering is the same for all vinyl, but the deluxe was pressed at Pallas in Germany (arguably the best vinyl pressing plant in the world), and it's a much better pressing than the normal vinyl (cleaner, more quiet, etc), to say nothing of the superior package.
