Josh Homme’s band thankfully picked up where 2002’s exquisitely fun Songs For The Deaf left off, ignoring the dreadfully boring Lullabies To Paralyze that emerged in between the two. Just count that one as growing pains from Homme kicking bassist Nick Oliveri out of the band following Songs. Vulgaris, happily, indulges in the same goofy time-traveling sound that the band always has, borrowing riffs from their roots in Kyuss as well as dipping back to the 60s for vocal melodies straight out of Cream, backed by thick, heavy drumming. It’s a hell of a fun album.
