A new band featuring Led Zeppelin legend John Paul Jones on bass guitar is already winning rave reviews.

The group, which consists of Jones with Josh Homme of Queens of the Stone Age on electric guitar and Dave Grohl on the drum kit, have just unveiled their first album.

According to the Times, the trio's LP comes with very high expectations, as all three members of the band carry a "lot of baggage".

However, the newspaper said their self-titled record is "thrillingly" and "breathtakingly odd" and far from boring.

Meanwhile, the Guardian stated that Them Crooked Vultures are as "tight, loud and impressive as rock supergroupery gets".

Duff McKagan of Velvet Revolver has also been full of praise for the new band, telling the Seattle Weekly that they have created a sound that is new and fresh.

This, he said, is significant, because it contains no obvious nods to any of their previous or current groups.

"The band's sound is startlingly refreshing," McKagan commented.
