Dark have been the times for the Queens over the past few years, particularly for their frontman, Josh Homme. On the brink of breaking up and throw everything away "with the flow" and even if they worked  hard not to come to this, they couldn't manage but to leave their faithful and imposing drummer, Joey Castillo, off the track. Over this split, personal health problems and a subsequent new questionning, the future seemed quite dark and gloomy for the band. An indeed, the new album is breathing out a scent of dumps and introspection, a far cry from the long awaited expectattions of the fans. But Josh Homme is not the kind of man to give way to resignation and their last release has some kind of cracked consistency, a true rendering of the doubts and inner turmoil of the time. What remained unclear was how it would all come out on stage. Here we have some kind of answer with a good balance between intimate self-awareness expression ("The Vampyre of Time and Memory"") and vintage lifeblood deflagration ("Millionaire"). Josh even looks in a good mood, appreciating and being quite affable and grateful for the rousing welcome they're receiving. A nice mix between the old and the new Queens Of The Stone Age. And for the fans who still miss "Songs For The Deaf", well, who knows ... there may be hope, ... someday !! "Tah-daaah !!!" ;-)

Enjoy !

Cheers !
