REVIEW: Queens of the Stone Age: … Like Clockwork (2013)

In my first piece for Pretty Much Amazing, I tackle the latest release from Queens of the Stone Age.  Spoiler alert: I really didn’t like it.

“This is all well-played stuff, occasionally expert, and most of the songs, even the most indulgent, boast minor redemptive moments – a cool guitar riff here, a nice vocal trick there. Also, to their credit, they’re able to work up and sustain a steady level of trippy menace over the course of the album. But the fact remains: these minor virtues aside, …Like Clockwork is a droning, incoherent endeavor, and it simply doesn’t reward the attention it’s asking for.”
