THEM CROOKED VULTURES - JPJ...

Post by definite » Wed Nov 18, 2009 7:03 am

I bought the new 'supergroup' self titled album by THEM CROOKED VULTURES yesterday (Dave Grohl, Joshua Homme, John Paul Jones).

To be honest its a good solid rock record but I struggle to say its much more than that...

Such a high calibre of musicians always sets a high expectation to be 'blown away' and I can't say its done that.

Part of it is that Joshua Homme is also singing which instantly makes it sound like Queens of the Stone Age (who are awesome but I wasn't expecting it to be so obviously like them!)

Yeah I've been thinking of buying it also just to see what the combination of these three great artists sounds like.

heard similar reports myself (haven't actually listened to them apart from the snippets online a while back).

the thing is that you can slap a handful of famous musos together, let them take a steaming crap on stage, and the crowd will always go wild.

even Bono could release an album of real lousy Tuvan throat singing and still sell millions. unfortunately anything with Homme on vox it'll always sound QOTSA-ish...
i like rickenbackers. and fridges.
