Sadly despite being a quality record in manufacture and packaging, the musical contents are skewed way off target. I think it all falls into the pit when the cringe worthy lyrics of'Fortress' hit your ears, making you wonder how on earth it made the cut...

I understand them trying to do something different, but I'm not a huge fan of this album. The delux vinyl sounded compressed, no depth to it.... I really tried to like it, whilst there are obvious highlights, the production is pants, its not for me! I love everything Josh has done up till this, so it's disappointing. Bring back the real Queens Of The Stone Age!🤘

This isn't a record. Its a god damned mantel piece. Can someone please explain to me why the fuck I would want to get up every 3 songs to change a record? I suspect nobody ever does. They just listen to the digital versions. This record could easily fit on a single vinyl. Its a shame because I really like the music. This record on the other hand is a mangled piece of glorified trash.

The Side D Boneface etching is a nice surprise. Just noticed after a month of owning this record.

excellent album, although Mark Ronson being producer certainly takes away a bit of the Queens edge. Sounds quality is good as is the pressing, a bit bass heavy/congested thou. Not sure why they did not cut this @ 45rpm and spread over all 4 sides of vinyl like " Like Clockwork"

As much as I love this album I have a terrible issue with it. The sound quality is fantastic when it's not washed out in static. My all three sides look as if they're covered in dust that I can't get off. The static on every side is horrendous, I thought there was something wrong with my setup but there was just dust caked on the stylus - took me a good 20 minutes to get it all off.

I bought it brand new from HMV in Cardiff. Anyone else have similar issues?

I also got my copy in HMV Cardiff a couple of months ago. I didn't have any problem with dust or static, although there is a bit of distortion in the last track on side C. All good otherwise!

I picked up a copy at my local record store -- in California-- and although the packaging is excellent and the vinyl looked clean, all sides are littered with excessive surface noise. You'll hear it between tracks and wherever there is a quiet passage. I've already cleaned it twice-- not much improvement. I've just ordered the deluxe version-- hoping the Pallas pressing was done better than this (usually this is the case).

how did you get the digital download to work? my deluxe pack doesnt have any hints of a code or something and the link from my preorder summary only brings me to the two teaser .wav songs... shodl there be a card with a code or something inside?

I thought mine was missing the download card too, but when i was taking photos of the lyricsheets to add here, it dropped out from somewhere. It's paper-thin. It's probably just stuck in there somewhere with a bit of static holding it in. There's photos of it in the images of this release to help identify it.

There is a download card inside the sleeve where disc 2 is placed. If it's not there maybe you can contact Matodor records. Sometimes record companies give you a new download code when the card is missing.

Is it possible to distinguish between US and European versions without opening the shrinkwrap?

Yes, the sticker on the US version mentions "pressed on 180 gram vinyl at Pallas", the European version doesn't.

I have the pre-ordered indie version but mine are etched with OLE-1125-1, anyone else? Indie should be OLE-1125-8 no?
