    A classic rock-influenced masterpiece of horny fun. [Apr 2006, p.84]
  3. If you come to rock music for pure release, to celebrate the body, to forget your day job, Death By Sexy is just what you’re looking for.
  4. Death by Sexy rubs out the line between novelty and earnestness, reminding us that music doesn't have to be ironic to have a sense of humor.

    The album is not particularly deep or insightful, but it does provide danceable and entertaining tunes that don't bore and that don't pretend to be something that they're not. [#13, p.85]
  6. New Musical Express (NME)

    It's an unyielding piss-up of tattooed garage riffs, petrol-drenched blues and Marlboro-chuffing growlers. [1 Jul 2006, p.35]

    Sounds more fun on paper than it is in reality. [Aug 2006, p.111]

    I can't believe the negative reviews surrounding this album... Death by Sexy is not only brilliant, catchy, and fun, but it's one I can't believe the negative reviews surrounding this album... Death by Sexy is not only brilliant, catchy, and fun, but it's one of a kind. So many critics complain about the lack of originality in music today, i can't understand why there isn't universal acclaim surrounding this album; it's easily one of the most original and outstanding albums to come out this year.

    More of a great thing! If you liked their first disc you will love this one. Nearly over the top, this music skewers more pretentious rock More of a great thing!

    [6.9] Another delightful surprise from Josh Homme, Death By Sexy is good, but one-dimensional and ultimately just too strange. The guitars[6.9] Another delightful surprise from Josh Homme, Death By Sexy is good, but one-dimensional and ultimately just too strange. The guitars could use a little more punch, and the vocals could be slightly less high-pitched. It has a lot of fun tracks, but stylistically it really doesn't fit the members of the group. A testosterone-fueled orchestra of guitars is certainly more suiting to Homme, and might actually make this album slightly more interesting. Expand
