Them Crooked Vultures: Nobody Loves Me & Neither Do I

The ever-distinct brand of Josh Homme continues to shine even under his latest endeavor, Them Crooked Vultures. As excited as I was to hear "New Fang" when it went public, this live performance of "Nobody Loves Me & Neither Do I" injects me with rock n' roll glee: wild rhythmic change-ups and guitar riffs that sneer and flaunt their cleverness and vitality like a stiff middle-finger to FM radio. John Paul Jones is almost in Zeppelin rebellion, having to begin again since rock radio killed "Stairway," and having a great time doing it. I'm even ready to forgive Dave Grohl for the The Foo Fighters after hearing this one.

The entire album is really amazing. You won't be disappointed. (Unless you've heard it already...!)
