Final Thoughts:

Queens of the Stone Age have never been a huge band for me, I honestly don’t know their catalog too well, but I really love 3’s and 7’s, it was one of my favourite songs to play on Guitar Hero. …Like Clockwork never hits 3’s and 7’s level, but it’s a really solid album, one to put on and zone out to. It doesn’t make me want to rock out as, say, Thee Oh Sees, but it is consistently enjoyable and is made me played on vinyl again and again. I think they probably have better albums out there, but …Like Clockwork is definitely not a bad start to get to know them.
