Queens of the Stone Age : I Appear Missing
Approaching the release of their first LP in five years, Josh Homme and co. are riding a wave of near-infallibility. It’s deserved, I guess, considering that QOTSA have never produced anything truly awful – and memories of their greatest moments can carry them over more languid moments such as Era Vulgaris and this, a slowed down carousel-like track that never really lifts. It’s solid, and Homme’s vox are in fine form, but you can see it acting as a toilet-time respite in the live setting.
