    This is boogie woogie, head-shaking music that's consistent the whole way through. 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-

    For fans of the Queens Of The Stone Age, and that whole brand of scuzzy stoner and desert rock/metal, this album is a godsend. "the Devil" Hughes is material for the next big rock god, and all the other contributions to it are equally amazing. Timmy Van Hamel is a fantastic guitar player and Josh Homme is great providing drums (not to mention producing). Great Work.

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

    You'd be hard pressed to find a more fun and accessible album. It requires no thought or effort....it simply does what it sets out to do--confuse, disorient, and occasionally make you dance.

    Jesse Hughes and Josh Homme take everything that's wrong with rock music and fix it. Why on earth would anyone want to go to a concert and be surrounded by nothing but dudes? Eagles of Death Metal brings the ladies back into rock-n-roll, which can only be a good thing. To top it all off, Hughes is the caliber of rock star that only comes around once ever 10 years. Best album of 2005. Period.

  1. Opener "I Only Want You" busts the QOTSA model with a little funk and jive. The rest of the album follows suit: a Queens backbone and Seventies rib.

    A swaggering, intoxicating tight-but-loose debut. [Jun 2004, p.107]
  3. Canned Heat mixed with Kiss and chopped into lines with Elvis and Queens Of The Stone Age.
