Josh Homme doesn't stand behind his work.
He claims he never wanted Kyuss to get big, but only AFTER they failed to GET big. If Eagles Of Death Metal takes off, he will take all the credit (and the $). If they fade away, then he was just the drummer and it was all just a joke.
If you want to keep your "QOTSA and all that is related" cd collection up to date, this is a must buy.
If you worship Josh Homme and the toilets he craps in, this is a must buy.
Other than that, (...) Carlo Von Sexron, Baby Duck, or whoever....Jesse "The Devil" Hughes has some seriously haunting demos out there, but "Peace Love and Death Metal" fails to capture that essence and instead falls way short on a pop level, comparable to 'Jet' or 'White Stripes'.
There are some white trash blues riffs in Keith Richards tuning, some lyrics about speed, dancing sluts, the So.Cal desert. All the "cool" people are involved, including the recently ousted Nick from QOTSA, Brody Armstrong of The Distillers, and other "desert folk". It was interesting in the 90's, but who cares 2004?
There are moments, like "Already Died", a hunting tune featuring Nick Oliveri on bass and a sampled drum track that sounds better than Homme playing live.
