Queens of the Stone Age - The Way You Used To Do

When consistency reaches a certain level, it’s just raw brilliance.

Some things have a level. Consistency isn’t the term - that just suggests they’ll always be alright. Queens of the Stone Age are always more than fine. Josh Homme has a mark of quality that means something, and with ‘The Way You Used To Do’, it’s not losing any of its lustre.

Led by a guitar line that sounds both trademark Queens and yet more swaggeriffic than ever before, this isn’t one of those brooding moments. It’s a high noon funk off, all handclaps and ding-a-lings. A line dance at the gates of hell, it could be no other band.

And that’s the beauty of Queens of the Stone Age. It’s not a formula, a cheap gimmick or a lack of invention that makes them one of the most unique bands on the planet. It’s part of their essence. When consistency reaches a certain level, it’s just raw brilliance. Stephen Ackroyd
