    Anyone else feel like the new clips from Dance of the Clairvoyants hint at Pearl Jam heading down a similar path of reinvention that Queens of the Stone Age went down for Like Clockwork and Villains? I loved how QOTSA managed to bring in retro synth sounds and a more atmospheric sound while still being 100% QOTSA. Pearl Jam may be up to something similar, and I'm loving it!

    a little. I was hoping Josh was gonna produce the new album.

    I don't like the compressed sound of Villains. Plus the songs to me sounded like Like Clockwork b-sides. Always thought they were at their best with bombastic drums (not always provided by Mr Grohl).

    agreed.  I think Villains is okay, but not at the level of clockwork.

    The synth in QOTSA works wheras the PJ song it does not.

    The two are mixed wayyyyy different.

    I've had Villains back in my rotation in recent weeks, and am really just now paying attention to how they play around with the time signature in Domesticated Animals.

    There's a lot of 7s & 8s, but I haven't figured out the pattern yet. (I'm not big into music theory, I just like counting along & figuring out odd time signatures [when I can]).

    Happy anniversary ...Like Clockwork. Randomly selected it from my vinyl collection without even realizing it was released this day in 2013. Love this album. So beautiful and well done. Top ten of the last 20 years in rock. 
    It's a hopeless situation...

    Me too.. it's an amazing album.  I love to crank the opening bass on Eyes Peeled.  It's a great, menacing start to the record.  And a super hq pressing as well.

    I think its my favorite album of theirs actually. 

    Great songs and they translate also nice live. 

    Way better than their latest album, which is probably my least liked of theirs. 
    Music is what feelings sound like.

    Queens of the Stone Age - Rated Rpng
    came out 20 years ago today and got me into QoTSA. I remember hearing Feel Good Hit of the Summer on y100 (philly alternative rock station at the time)

    I got the Rated X vinyl version of this. The Rated R was way to pricey for me at this time.  Wonder if there are anu major differences besides the cover.
