Additional info2017 Matador label 9-track 2LP set - the 7th album by hard Californian riff rockers rockers lead by John Homme - reviewed as "a little looser and more uptempo than their last release ...Like Clockwork and "more carefree" by The Rolling Stone Magazines Kory Grow... "While the guitars still have the limber crunch of Queens albums past, they're playing around easy-breezy disco beats and chilly synths..."

"'Villains' is Queens Of The Stone Age at their darkly seductive best, from the garish cover art to its well-crafted production, this is an album that proves that there is still a place for rock music in the mainstream of 2017. If 'Like Clockwork' saw the band step towards classic rock territory, 'Villains' sees them edge back towards the more experimental and creative. Like a wiser, crazier older brother.*"
