And the folks at the Grammys must agree with the critics, nominating …Like Clockwork for Best Rock Album and Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical, plus “My God Is The Sun” for Best Rock Performance. Meanwhile, we weren’t exaggerating about those Best of 2013 notices, which include:

“Homme combines menacing riffs and glammy refinement, sounding like Bowie reborn as a winking dark lord of the underworld… the king of Queens still has the best hard-rock falsetto of his generation.”–ROLLING STONE #6 Best Albums of 2013

#8 Album of 2013–AMAZON

“Queens of the Stone Age¹s sixth album may be their first for an indie label, but they¹re still making huge and bombastic music that sounds like it was built for arenas… a sleazy, strutting vibe that somehow manage to be both knowingly ironic and totally sincere.”–BUZZFEED #20 Album of 2013

#18 Album of 2013–CHICAGO TRIBUNE

“The nightmare carousel grinds back into motion. More real, raw and direct than ever before”–CRAVE #1 Album of 2013

“Josh Homme’s vocals have never sounded better, easily traveling from detached cool to fiery rocker and back again.”–NEWSDAY #8 Album of 2013

“Six years was definitely worth the wait for Queens of the Stone Age fans. Sure .. Like Clockwork is chock full of special guests like Dave Grohl, Elton John, Trent Reznor and Alex Turner among others, but this is one case where the music overshadows the names. ‘My God Is the Sun’ and ‘I Sat by the Ocean’ were released as singles, but … Like Clockwork is a true album listening experience in a singles era and well worth taking in from front to back. … Like Clockwork sits atop
our Top Rock and Metal Albums of 2013.”–NOISECREEP #1 Album of 2013

“For those who still believe rock-and-roll should be slimey, sinister stuff.”–WASHINGTON POST #9 Best Pop Singles of 2013
