A near classic album from the ultimate super group with John Paul Jones (Led Zeppelin), Dave Grohl (Nirvana & Foo Fighters), and Josh Homme (Queens of the Stone age). Everybody's musical style complements each other in a surprisingly fresh way.
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.
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.
