Not technically new since they played it live recently, but still news worthy.

I had a feeling I'd like this track more recorded than live. Did not disappoint.

It started off well, I just don't really like his voice all that much. Which is weird, considering I love TCV.

Song doesn't do a whole lot for me. Still holding out hope that the album will be awesome though.

Holy shit, you listen to like the first 20 seconds and you just know it's QOTSA.

Great song, but it's in their comfort zone for sure.

Unless you dislike QOTSA I can't see how you could call this boring...Do you want them to release a god damn Hip Hop single?

This is an average rock song. None of the style or guts of their first three albums.

I don't think they'll ever come close to what they did on the first 3 albums, but I'm hoping this one is at least better than the last two. this song reminds me of something off of Lullabies to Paralyze.

"Hoping this is better than Era Vulgaris."

It will be. I'm glad they made EV though because they stepped outside the normal formula and some of us didn't loathe it. Now, a return to form.

It feels slower or less powerful than the live version. Hurm. Still fucking awesome though. Love me some Queens

"This is an average rock song. None of the style or guts of their first three albums."

Agreed. While I thought this was a 'good' song, I wasn't all that amazed by it. I was hoping for something with an instant hold like "A Songs for the Deaf" or "Regular John", I'm remaining optimistic that the the album will deliver though.

Yeah if anyone else had made era vulgaris it would be considered a classic.

It had some decent songs, but overall weak as a whole. At least, that's just me.

Pretty underwhelming. I didn't like their last two and Lullabies to Paralyze was only okay. I don't know why I expected more.

Yeah in retrospect the live performance of this was slightly more killer. I'm down though, I just wish it was like.... 10 bpm faster or something, like the live version. Same difference between Era Vulgaris studio stuff versus EV songs live.

"My God Is The Sun" is a fantastic single. Very well produced. Love the way the drums and bass sound. If the rest of the album has the same quality we are looking forward to a future classic.
Am i the only one looking forward to listening to Mark Lanegan's voice on a QOTSA song again?
