Them Crooked Vultures (Sony)

As far as supergroups go, this one’s pretty super: Queen Of The Stone Age Josh Homme out front, with a dream-team rhythm section of Led Zeppelin bassist John Paul Jones and Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl.

Perhaps inevitably, it doesn’t live up to its credits. While the Grohl-Jones engine room locks into solidity often enough – see the likes of No One Loves Me And Neither Do I and New Fang – there really aren’t many songs here that linger long in the memory.
