Villains is the seventh album from Queens of the Stone Age, released August 25, 2017 via Matador Records. Frontman Josh Homme talked about the meaning behind the title, Villains, in a press release stating that it had nothing to do with our current political situation. The title Villains isnt a political statement. It has nothing to do with Trump or any of that shit. Domesticated Animals. Queens of the Stone Age.

Beggars от лица компании Matador Records LatinAutor, Kobalt Music Publishing, AMRA, UMPI и другие авторские общества 5. It takes nearly a minute for Villains to begin its slow ascent from the murk and even longer before the clenched funk of Feet Don't Fail Me Now clicks in, a deliberateness that suggests Josh Homme has supreme confidence in the seventh album from Queens of the Stone Age. Queens of the Stone Age always sounded like the best glam-band name ever, and while Josh Hommes free-ranging heavy rock hypnotists were never quite that, they come as close as ever on Villains. I was born in the desert May 17, in 73 Homme declares on the opener, Feet Dont Fail Me which is true, in fact. It also happens to be a date near glams peak, and the echo of Rick Derringers spangled 73 top-40 anthem Rock and Roll Hootchie Koo is probably no accident, either. By the tail end, hes sounding more like David Bowie than even Era Vulgaris campy I Wanna Make It Wit Chu back i. Josh Homme and Queens Of The Stone Age are on the cover of this week's NME. We caught up with them in Paris to find out their favourite moments recording their epic new album. Pick up the magazine for the full story. Josh Homme has offered just a couple of hints about new material. A source close to informed the site that there will be no special guests on the album, which means no cameo from occasional band member and Homme mate Dave Grohl. Its a Queens-only affair. By contrast, 2013s Like Clockwork was crammed full of guests. Elton John, Alex Turner, Trent Reznor, M. Nearly two decades later, Queens of the Stone Age are one of the biggest names in contemporary hard rock. Aside from Foo Fighters and Nine Inch Nails-whose figureheads, Dave Grohl and Trent Reznor, have both appeared on past Queens albums-youd be hard-pressed to find a group of comparable critical or commercial standing. Further buttressing the groups ubiquity is Hommes many collaborations, seen in the frontmans resume of side projects Desert Sessions, Eagles of Death Metal, Them Crooked Vultures and productionperformance stints Arctic Monkeys, Iggy Pop, the Strokes offshoot CRX. Villains is Queens Of The Stone Age at their darkly seductive best, from the garish cover art to its well-crafted production, this is an album that proves that there is still a place for rock music in the mainstream of 2017. Full Review. But they dont need to. Despite Hommes self-mythologising, they long since ceased to be a desert rock band theyre simply a great rocknroll group.

I red some reviews about noises etc. These records (from DIX edition) sound incredible!!!
Mysterious Wrench
Though the European version sounds pretty good to me. A little noise but other than that sounds Good!
Are you sure about this being pressed at Optimal? Sticker says Pallas. That would be pretty bad.
I picked up my copy from Piccadilly Records in Manchester. Sticker said Pallas so was fully expecting it to be the UK press. Card inners and stamped 44981 on the matrix confirm it isn't Optimal.
The cover picture is from the US pressing, the EU sticker doesn't mention Pallas.
Just to add to the edition confusion, I've seen the Pallas pressing for sale in UK stores, namely Fopp. They're part of HMV Group, which is a large retail group, so it's possible that they sourced some copies from the US. My FLRS only stocks the Optimal pressing.
my us press from Matador check the correct matrix number...(ok)not at the poly lined sleeves..... ????? Whay???
Not true. Only the US deluxe was pressed by Pallas. There is also a Deluxe which was pressed by Optimal. So not "ALL" were pressed by Pallas. Check the different hype stickers and especially the matrix info closely. Thank you!
ALL of these pressings were at Pallas unless we are being lied to. Some people have been saying the mix/master is off. IT IS JUST LOW VOLUME MASTERING. This is done so that you TURN UP THE VOLUME and are able to audibly hear the album better at a higher db level. Is it different? Yes. Does that mean the recording is worse/ It just means you need to have proper audio setup to enjoy the album. Is it work? Maybe for some...
Well, it looked like that in the video. So both versions come without poly lined sleeves then, ok.
VooDooM Yes it is, especially when both pressing plants are in Europe, right? Also, according to the band's official unboxing video, the US version has poly lined inner sleeves, while the EU one only has cardboard sleeves. Mine is the U.S. Deluxe pressed by Pallas but it did not have poly lined inner sleeves. Or do I misunderstand you? Thank you!
Yes it is, especially when both pressing plants are in Europe, right? Also, according to the band's official unboxing video, the US version has poly lined inner sleeves, while the EU one only has cardboard sleeves.
Its pretty confusing to be honest. Why not just get it done by a decent company for all of them?
It seems the 1st picture is just a copy of the American pressing. The 5th picture is the actual sticker on the European edition. I'm afraid the European version is indeed being pressed at Optimal.
