...Like Clockwork

Queens Of The Stone Age - 2013

Josh Homme is simply a beast. By all rights, he's cruel. However, he's the guy you want by your side in a brutal bar fight. He does construction when he's not logging or working on an oil rig. He owns a muscle car with a V12 engine that he dismantles and rebuilds on a bi-monthly basis while blindfolded. His microwave has a gun rack and his scars have their own tattoos. He's secretly the nephew of Chuck Norris and makes Mark Lanegan look about as macho as a Kermit the Frog. He burns down every studio just after an album's recorded. He always two steps ahead by standing right behind you. If any of this is not true, it really should be. Regardless, Homme is a brilliant songwriter with guitar chops and a rich baritone. I'd like to submit every cut on …Like Clockwork as evidence. Standout tracks: I sat by the Ocean, Smooth Sailing, and I Appear Missing. PS He smokes Nails.

I'm looking forward to reviewing this one, but I want to give it more time to sink in. Homme has a great way of writing surprising guitar riffs. You don't always see them coming like you do with other rock bands.
