Review: Queens of the Stone Age confront villains on new album

After blasting out five albums in the first nine years of Queens of the Stone Age, Josh Homme has backed off in the last decade in a considered effort to make the band newly relevant to not just his fans but to himself. On "Villains" (Matador), only the band's second album since 2007, Homme splices together rock swagger, dance swing, vocal androgyny and art-band weirdness into songs that can't be easily pinned down.
