About personal related stuff but now I genuinely don’t feel like doing it.
And yet I am.
The new Queens of the Stone Age album is officially released today. It’s probably the most anticipated new album for me personally, in a long time.
Even though I’ve been streaming it in itunes for the last week, it’s not the same as actually physically owning it.
Anyway, it’s a really great album - I read a review saying it’s surprisingly focused for a QOTSA album, and it is focused. I think you can hear the genuine emotion in the songs musically and certainly lyrically.
QOTSA albums of the past have been “dark” but I think there are times on ‘Like Clockwork’ where it’s really dark. And it’s all because of Josh’s near death experience during knee surgery. He said in NME he felt “pieces of me were missing”. NME summed up the album by saying it’s their best since ‘Songs for the Deaf’ and that’s very true.
