As classic as Villains can sound, and there's no doubting that Homme and company pledge allegiance to the sounds and styles patented in the '70s, it feels fresh due to execution. At this stage, Queens of the Stone Age don't have many new tricks in their bag, but their consummate skill, accentuated by the fact that this is the first QOTSA album that features just the band alone, not even augmented by Mark Lanegan, means they know when to ratchet up the tempo, when to slide into a mechanical grind, and when to sharpen hooks so they puncture cleanly. All that makes Villains a dark joy, a record that offers visceral pleasure in its winking menace.
