    The super group "Them Crooked Vultures" looks good on paper... The disc itself though blends together to create nothing. It all sounds the same, and leaves much to be desired on all fronts. Maybe it was the less then deserved hype from the media or the band that made this disc seem so mediocre.

  1. It’s an oddball groove-rock album, played very well, imprinted with Homme's undeniably interesting personality. Yet when all’s said and done, it's not particularly memorable and entirely lacks the type of yee-haw exuberance that might have made it a sloppy treat.
  2. This stomping, panting, sweaty monster is a great listen.
  3. Homme and Grohl are old hands at this kind of thing--see their excellent Zeppelin homages on the Queens' "Songs for the Deaf." But they definitely seem inspired by Jonesy's presence, and he helps them keep it light.
