  • Summary: This is the debut for the trio of Josh Homme (Queens of the Stone Age), Jesse Hughes and Timmy VanHamel, who, in case you were wondering, sound like neither The Eagles nor death metal.

    Hughes' titillating vocal performance makes these Eagles soar. [26 Mar 2004, p.73]

    Eagles of Death Metal aren't air-quote ironic like the Darkness; they're a passionately played goof for Homme. [May 2004, p.120]
  3. Canned Heat mixed with Kiss and chopped into lines with Elvis and Queens Of The Stone Age.

    So authentic, you'll think songs like "Bad Dream Mama" were put to tape 25 years ago. [Jun 2004, p.108]
  5. Uncut

    Often shambolic and in-jokey, it's also sensationally good fun. [May 2004, p.93]
  6. If there's a problem, it's that the fifteen songs tend to blur together after nearly forty-five minutes.

    The worst record [Homme's] name has ever graced. [#10, p.89]

    The greatest "dance rock" album. It gives me wiggles and makes my rump shake.

Eagles Of Death Metal aren't trying to start a movement or get you thinking about the meaning of life, absolutely not. It's just good old rock and roll that makes you want to swing your hips. I've listened to it once already and I'm instantly hooked. A- Expand
