The songs are beautiful in ways only Ray Davies can achieve, but the album’s scattered feel keeps it from being more than the sum of its parts.

Album artwork of '...Like Clockwork' by 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.
