10 THINGS YOU REALLY DON'T NEED TO ASK THEM CROOKED VULTURES

Yes thus far this band has been an enigma wrapped in a mystery--save for the music Dave, Joshua and John have been very publicly playing. So in the interest of keeping things very much focused on that music, here are ten things you will now already know going into an interview with Them Crooked

5.0 out of 5 stars THEM CRAFTY VULTURES November 17, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Yes, I am a fan of QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE, FOO FIGHTERS and LED ZEP. I even saw THEM CROOKED VULTURES in a terrific show in DC, prior to this release. That said, I still dropped this disc in the tray, hit play, and was prepared to skip tracks if they did not grab me in the first minute; it's a lame habit, but I do eventually listen to all discs in their entirety. This album had me mesmerized for 1 hour and 6 minutes. No skipping! It is extremely well crafted from start to finish. With Homme's haunting vocals, it does sound more like a QOTSA release than anything else, but many of the catchy songs are designed to highlight the considerable talents of his bandmates. Instant classic. Buy it now. Let's hope this is not just a side project for the performers. These vultures should "carrion". sorry...

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favourite albums of 2009 November 23, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Seeing as I'm a fan of Zeppelin, Queens of The Stone Age, and Foo Fighters, the idea of buying this cd was a no brainer to me.
Upon inital listen the impression I was left with was it sounds like another QOTSA album.... And only found a few songs that stood out. However upon inital listens to the album it is anything but another QOTSA album. I think its funny how people can judge an album so quickly and most reviewers do that. I like to give an album a few listens (roughly 20-40) before I can determine if it is eligable to become a regular in the cd player. And this album quickly has turned into just that for me.
Before I purchased this cd I did however look at the reviews and some of them included that there was a Zeppelin like presence on the album. At first like I said it sounded like another QOSTA album and I could'nt figure out where the Zeppelin was. THIS IS AN ALBUM YOU CANNOT LISTEN TO A FEW SONGS AT A TIME. LISTEN TO IT IN BULK THE WHOLE WAY THROUGH. And you certainly cannot judge it on a couple listens. There is so many different elements in each song on this album. Songs that I initially did'nt like at first now have become some of my favs. "Elephants" and "Warsaw Or The First Breath You Take After You Give Up"
Right then onto the breakdown of the album ...........

1. NO ONE LOVES ME & NEITHER DO I .......... good opener def. better material on the album than this although midway through the song their is a great tempo change which makes it a great song.
2. MIND EARSER, NO CHASER .......... Def sounds like its a radio song but in a good way. This was a fav of mine right off the bat, very catchy chorus.
3. NEW FANG .............. choppy fast rythm and good vocals grea,t closing solo to the song
4. DEAD END FRIENDS........

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Amazing November 17, 2009
Format:Audio CD
I'm not much for writing reviews, however I felt compelled to tell everyone who reads this that you must buy this album. It is some of the best music produced in the past few years. I went to see them without ever hearing a song and loved everyone they played at the concert. I pre-ordered the album and couldn't wait until I was able to download it. I just may go and pick up the CD as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cream circa 2010 February 21, 2010
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I don't know why more reviewers haven't made what seems to me an obvious connection between TCV and Cream.

Besides the fact that both bands are power-trios, this seems to me totally a Cream album for today. Like Cream of yore, it's imperfect and sometimes anti-melodic except, in Cream's case, when the band followed traditional blues patterns that allowed for a bit of groove (Strange Brew, Sunshine of Your Love, Tales of Brave Ulysses). Cream often challenged listeners by using time shifts and cryptic lyrics, and TCV certainly does the same. I can't call TCV's debut a perfect or great album, but its real interesting and, damn! these guys can play.

My tastes run more to music that swings, and if TCV ever did a version of Politician or SWALBR I think the world's energy crisis would be solved. But till then, this album offers technical mastery, interesting and intricate power arrangements, and just a really agreeable roar than I'm thoroughly digging.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm shocked at how much I love this album April 11, 2010
By Mort
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
As background... I'm 55 and was (and am) a huge fan of rock in the Led Zep era. These days I like jazz, classical and rock, and it's been hard to find a modern rock album that I find interesting. But this album is incredible. I can't stop playing it. It's filled with creativity, nuance, humor, insouciance, and just plain great hard-driving music. I can't recommend it enough. It's rare to hear rock music these days that has so much going on in it.

I like every single song (in it's own way), which is unprecedented in any album these days, IMO.

5.0 out of 5 stars Come back another day, and do no wrong November 19, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Not a letdown like other `supergroups' (I am looking at you Velvet Revolver and to some extent Audioslave). The entire album is brilliant and pretty much dips in and out of QOTSA and led zeppelin sounds. The rhythm section in particular sounds very much like John Paul Jones' ship. I remember reading an interview with Dave Grohl way back where he was gushing about how much he loves Led Zeppelin. Can you imagine the awesomeness of this scenario? Listening to a JPJ with led zep on the radio as a kid and today actually playing on stage with him! That's like me playing onstage with Dave Grohl and Josh Homme! Grohl channels his inner Bonham and actually holds back a little of his usual grunge flourish. Josh Homme can do no wrong as usual - singing with a boozy swagger and the snaky fuzz-fueled riffing.
The most zeppelinesque song and my favorite on this album - Reptile
Gunman - chorus sounds like Bowie - the song has a *gulp* disco feel to it - theres a break in the middle that sounds like the break in `another one bites the dust'.
No one loves me, neither do I - brilliant, and has QOTSA written all over it, with the tongue in cheek lyrics.
All in all, this rocks!

TCV - Best Album Release in decades...
So what is their sound like? Are they melodic-yet-edgy like Foo Fighters? Is there the Zeppelin influence due to John Paul Jones on bass? Just curious. Can't wait to hear the new LP, and I hope they come to the central part of the country for tour dates. :)

Them Boring Vultues
I think you need to listen harder.
Trying to compare anything Josh Homme does to Franz Ferdinand doesn't even warrant a response and if Josh Homme was trying to be similar to The Doors, he wouldn't have created QOTSA.
If you think he sounds uninspired, all I can say is look up some Vultures... Read More
