Album artwork of '...Like Clockwork' by Queens of the Stone Age

...Like Clockwork Queens of the Stone Age

Homme’s quip that rock 'should be heavy enough for the boys and sweet enough for the girls' rings true here; there’s a near perfect balance of grit and finesse.

Album artwork of 'Post Pop Depression' by Iggy Pop

Post Pop Depression Iggy Pop

A solid Iggy Pop record, but with a lingering sense of disappointment that all the talent involved couldn’t create something more substantial.

Album artwork of 'Electric Ladyland' by The Jimi Hendrix Experience

Electric Ladyland The Jimi Hendrix Experience

Album artwork of 'Joanne' by Lady Gaga

Joanne Lady Gaga

Album artwork of 'Superunknown' by Soundgarden

Superunknown Soundgarden

Superunknown is a sprawling record, spanning grunge, alternative metal, stoner rock, and psychedelia, all while being one of the '90s most accessible works.

Album artwork of 'How Did We Get So Dark?' by Royal Blood

How Did We Get So Dark? Royal Blood

There isn't much substance here. The album gives a far clearer impression of who Royal Blood want to sound like than it does what their actual vibe is.

Album artwork of 'Villains' by Queens of the Stone Age

Villains Queens of the Stone Age

Mark Ronson's production is pristine, which while technically impressive feels inappropriate. The music sounds kitschy, like a gigantic quiff's greatest hits.
