10 Songs, 45 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

After an extended hiatus, bandleader Joshua Homme brings Queens of the Stone Age raging back to life on …Like Clockwork, a set of songs propelled by a bash of drums, gnarled guitar, and brooding intensity. The album opens with an ominous mid-tempo warning, “Keep Your Eyes Peeled,” before launching into edgy, complex tunes like “My God Is the Sun” and “Fairweather Friends.” Even the album’s piano ballad, “The Vampyre of Time and Memory,” retains a black-hearted edge—like taking a rumble down Goodbye Yellow Brick Road in a muscle car.
