“Churning bass, thunderous percussion and the ominous wail of frontman Josh Homme signal a glorious return from a six year hiatus.”–THE SUN (UK): SOMETHING FOR THE WEEKEND Single Of The Week

“(10 “most hotly anticipated warm-weather long-players”) … woozy desert-rock crooning over heavy swirls of guitar… the band”s upcoming sixth studio album, …Like Clockwork, reminds us, (Josh Homme) does it better than just about anybody else.”–ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY

“a kaleidoscopic air, swirling with FM radio”s various colors… Over it all, Homme croons like a hard rock mystic, timeless and omniscient”–BUST

“(FOUR STARS) the band”s most gloriously motorik chug since those earlydays… takes off like a trip to the Mushroom Planet as Homme croons about desert roads to nowhere and praises the sun like he never gets tired of staring at it… Breathe deep”-ROLLING STONE

“an appropriately gnarly 4/4 monster, recalling their hardest hitting early material. As Homme gazes in awe at the sun”s omnipresent embrace, rock die-hards have ample time to hail the Queens” revival”-BILLBOARD
