iTunes Review

If you’re going to “go retro” with your music listening, it’s best to do so with guys who have been there. So, Led Zeppelin’s bassist John Paul Jones forms a cross-generational supergroup with Nirvana/Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl and Queens of the Stone Age’s Josh Homme, and the riffs come tumbling. The group brings back a danceable backbeat to the hard rock pantheon (“New Fang”) and a new workbook for the next generation of guitar players (“Elephants”). Just as Zeppelin were anchored by the swinging bludgeon of John Bonham, so Them Crooked Vultures are vaulted forth with Grohl’s sturdy grooves. “No One Loves Me & Neither Do I” kicks things off with a dark boogie riff that’s pure Zeppelin and a Homme vocal that belongs to early-‘70’s hard rock. “Mind Eraser, No Chaser” throws Jones’ keyboards against Homme’s convincing Jimmy Page impressions. “Reptiles” runs through a jungle as tense as Zep classics “Achilles’ Last Stand” and “Kashmir.” “Scumbag Blues” updates Cream. “Warsaw or the First Breath You Take After You Give Up” channels Iron Butterfly and the Doors. Them Crooked Vultures are both tribute and a legitimate foot forward.

Like sex for your ear drums!

What else can you say about this album? It is basically an orgasm for your ears from start to finish. Buy it, listen to it, delete it, then buy it again.

It's as if a superior being created this band.....

to destroy all of the pathetic so called "rock" groups that have been plaguing our music scene for the past ten years. I was lucky enough to catch their show in Nashville this October and it was freaking astounding and humbling to see, hear, and feel the power of real Rock n' Roll come out of their instruments then out of their speakers to smack me right in the face. After the show I went home and grabbed my roomate's cds of Creed, Nikleback, and Staind etc. and put them in the shredder one by one. My roomate, obviously angry at me for trashing his prized cd's, said "Why'd you do that?" and I replied, "Because after going to the Them Crooked Vultures show your music doesn't even matter anymore." Anyways, sorry for rambling but buy this cd for everyone you know.

Just excellent

TCV are an unbelievable mix. People hoping to hear something totally new will be disappointed, but those looking to hear truly great musicians do what they do best, and mix their own unique sounds into one cohesive homage to rock and roll will have their minds blown.

This is just solid, great, fun rock and roll put together by one of Rock's pioneers (John Paul Jones) and two of his best and most innovative disciples (Grohl and Homme).

It has the hard rock feel that Foo Fighters sometimes lack. It has the cleaner, polished sound that QOTSA disregards (one of my favorite bands, but tough to swallow if their style isn't your thing). And it has the added bonus and classic rock infusion of John Paul Jones. It's the best of their own styles, creating pounding choruses, often hilarious and awesome verses, and some soul-completing solos.

Rock is never dead.
