i consider Josh Homme to be one of the great innovators of rock and roll history, and I feel confident he will be remembered by time as such. there is nothing in the world that sounds quite like Queens and yet he just keeps pushing and pushing the sounds out, and it's only getting more and more original album to album. the fact that it's all so damn catchy is insane to me, how this guy can take these sounds and riffs seemingly from outer space and make pop songs out of them.
plus with all the turmoil and insanity he's been going through past couple years, I could see this album really being his defining work. i mean, who knows. all i've heard are those 2 second clips, but to me it seems like the guy really poured himself into this record.
