      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      One of the finest QOTSA albums ever made

      Era Vulgaris was released in 2007 and is the 5th album that Queens of the Stone Age have released. There are 13 tracks on the album which are: 1 Turnin On The Screw 2 Sick, Sick, Sick 3 I'm Designer 4 Into The Hollow 5 Misfit Love 6 Battery Acid 7 Make It Wit Chu 8 3's & 7's 9 Suture Up Your Future 10 River In The Road 11 Run, Pig, Run 12 Running Joke 13 Era Vulgaris I always await a new Queens of the Stone age album with great anticipation. They are one of the few bands who can change their core sound on each album that both attracts new fans and keeps the old ones. Their songs are instantly recoqnisable as theirs and 'Era Vulgaris' is another top notch album from a band on the top of their game. The sound of this album is groovy, dirty and sexy rock driven by Homme's expert vocals and guitar grooves. There is no standout track on this album. They are all impressive in their own right and there is alot of vareity which makes for a very entertaining album full of diverse music. Its enough to get anyone in a groove. Every song on show here suits a mood - from the dark and gritty 'Sick, sick, sick' to the chilled out 'make it wit you' via the memorable riffs of '3's and 7's' and the haunting 'running joke'. This is an album that will be on your playlist for months on end. The thing that sets queens of the stonge age apart from other bands is that they do't follow trends and are always experimenting musically. Most other bands this old have either got stuck in a rut or sold out for the money. they are still as original and refreeshing to hear as they were 15 years ago. If your a QOTSA fan then you already have this. If your looking for some of the best rock music available then this is a must have.

        Disadvantages

        A decent album from Queens of the Stone Age containing a number of strong tracks.

        Queens of the Stone Age got together as a band in 1997, and since then have undergone many line-up changes. Including 'Era Vulgaris', Queens of the Stone Age have now released five studio albums to date, and have released four of these through their current label Interscope Records whom they have been with since releasing 'Rated R' in June 2000. Josh Homme is the bands founding member, and is the only original member still present in the band. Typically, other band members only last for a couple of years in the band – however Nick Oliveri was with the band from 1998-2004. Oliveri was kicked out of the band in 2004 as Josh Homme believed that he had been physically abusive to his girlfriend. Oliveri was a massive part of the band, and when he was kicked out in 2004 I personally feared for the future of the band. After being kicked out of the band, Oliveri announced that his other band Mondo Generator would become his full-time project. Queens of the Stone Age kept going, and since the exit of Oliveri have now released two albums; 'Lullabies to Paralyze' in 2005 and of course this album 'Era Vulgaris' in 2007. I always look forward to new Queens of the Stone Age albums with great anticipation. They never fail to impress, and 'Era Vulgaris' has been no exception to the rule. In the follow up to 2005's 'Lullabies to Paralyze', the band once again prove their worth and have pulled through with one of the best albums of the year here. Now on album number five, it is good to see that Josh Homme is still not short on ideas. Showing eerie flair throughout, ''Era Vulgaris' I feel shows the band in an extremely positive light proving them to be an ever progressing, always entertaining juggernaut of a band. The album is 13 tracks strong, taking you on a dark journey via Homme's distinctive vocal styling, the eerie flow of the guitars, and the slick yet strangely unnerving production work. There are many standout tracks on display here, most notably the albums storming debut single '3's and 7's' – but this is far from being a one track strong album. Each track here is powerful in it's own individual way and all 13 songs here make for a great listening experience. 'Battery Acid' for one sticks in the memory for me with its buzz saw guitars, fast and frantic pace, and brilliant vocal work. This one would make a great single with its psychedelic aura and fantastic charm. 'Sick, Sick, Sick' is another champion track that springs to mind. Released as a download only single, 'Sick, Sick, Sick' has everything you could possibly ask for in a Queens of the Stone Age release and for me at least was a definite high point. 'Make It Wit Chu' on the other hand is so unlike the band it's perfect, it's just so refreshing to hear the band doing something different and definitely went down a treat with me. Queens of the Stone Age will never be the biggest band in the world given the vain of their music, however they will always have a dedicated legion of fans, and as time goes by this can only get bigger. They don't seem to be able to put a foot wrong in anything that they do, and although many will (fairly) argue that the band were at their best some years ago now, there is no denying the fact that they are still releasing some great music even if it is not their finest work to date. I do believe that Nick Oliveri is sorely missed in the band as they were in my opinion making better music when he was still with them, however his exit from the band was highly understandable and the band should no doubt stand by that decision to have parted ways with him.
