Queens of the Stone Age – Era Vulgaris

Interscope

3 Stars

Josh Homme and company seem to have settled into a nice groove after ousting original bassist Nick Oliveri. Like last year’s Lullabies to Paralyze, this album features plenty of guest appearences from rock royalty like the Strokes’s Julian Casablancas, Mark Lanagan and Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top fame. The album’s absent title track, “Era Vulgaris” (featuring vocals from Trent Reznor) was released separately on the You Know What You Did promotional CD to the amusement of the band.
