“It’s the last three songs that push an already arresting album to the next level. The title track finds their voices lilting, tumbling with a graceful rise and fall toward the gorgeous chorus, with the lyrics deftly exploring human nature and our constant urge to try and keep things from slipping through our fingers.”
~ Paste Magazine
“The album’s production is majestic, aiming squarely for the cosmos depicted on its striking cover artwork. Like the cosmic soul it emulates, the atmosphere is lush, full of period ambiance worthy of a high-end television set.”

“On these asides, QOTSA conjures the dark magic that’s been their calling card since the start, but where …Like Clockwork gained strength from its foreboding, Villains feels designed to lift spirits. For one, it’s filled with ravers and boogies, alternating between taut vamps and louche glam grooves. Homme goes so far as to tip his stove pipe hat to Marc Bolan on “Un-Reborn Again,” one of a few classic rock nods scattered throughout the album. As classic as Villains can sound — and there’s no doubting that Homme and company pledge allegiance to the sounds and styles patented in the ’70s — it feels fresh due to execution.” – Allmusic.com Read the full review

“Isbell writes material that addresses our bewildering times while referencing timeless themes. “White Man’s World,” a fierce Muscle Shoals slow burn, insightfully addresses the marginalization of women, blacks and Native Americans from the perspective of one from the most fortunate demographic group. “Hope The High Road” drips with defiance; when Isbell shouts out “Last year was a son of a bitch,” you feel his empathy, but when he later promises, “There can’t be more of them than us,” you believe that there is a way forward for all the world’s strung-out hearts and souls.” – American Songwriter Read the full review
