  • As soon as Typhoons kicks off with a stomping fuzz guitar riff that morphs into a disco beat, it's clear producer Josh Homme hasn't shied away from pushing Royal Blood into his wheelhouse. Oversized guitars battle with cheekily tacky hooks and beats throughout Typhoons, a signature move of Homme's whether he's working with Queens of the Stone Age or the Desert Sessions. Royal Blood embrace this trash aesthetic without losing their muscle or might, as the thrashing "Boilermaker" makes clear. Typhoons certainly doesn't sound as garagey or heavy as either of Royal Blood's first two records. There's a swing to the rhythms and a swagger to the duo's delivery, a lightness of touch that is quite appealing. For the first time, Royal Blood sounds like they're having fun and those good spirits are infectious. Typhoons is designed as a late-night party record and if Homme occasionally pushes Royal Blood to lean in a bit too hard in this direction, the results are quite effective. -AllMusic
