This is good, pure Queens of the Stone Age, though.

I really liked Humbug- it was so dark and psychedelic. It's nice to see Josh Homme really having an influence on them, this song has a really sinister sound.

Great band who have stayed honest to their art. Lyricly Alex Turner has become quite the poet, I agree with the poster above, Humbug was a great record with Homme at the wheel.

I can see why this is the B-side. R U Mine is great. This... not so much.

R U mine sucks IMO, generic pop song. Electricity shoulda been the single.

I've never understood why people hate these guys. Easily one of my favourite bands and i've never had such fun watching a band "grow" so naturally. I mean the debut to this song, awesome!

On Humbug they still sounded like the Arctic Monkeys, just playing songs with a similar style to Queens of the Stone Age. This just literally sounds like a tune written and performed by a QOTSA tribute band. I can't even tell if it's really Alex Turner singing this.

This is a pretty badass song tough. i wish all their stuff sounded like this.
and humbug didnt sound anything like QOTSA, monkeys actually crafted the influence of josh homme into their own
sound.

Suck It & See is probably their best work since their debut, and these last few songs they've released have been pretty fucking awesome too. I really hope they continue in this direction!

R U Mine was absolute gold. This? I'd say bronze.

FUCK HOW DID I NOT SEE THIS?

But after listening, I like the instrumentation but overall the song is just okay.

"They got better" nah, they lost everything that made them good in the first place. They're too busy rimming Josh Homme to come up with anything decent these days.

Sometimes genres crossover, no matter how much complaining
