Eagles of Death Metal - Death by Sexy...

Following up an album as sexy as Peace, Love, Death Metal is a tuff thing to do. But in my opinion if anyone could do it, I guess it would be Eagles of Death Metal, they are the sexiest band... EVER!!!!!

The album starts out strong enough with the quick Boys Bad News its a solid track, but things seem a little over-produced. It doesnít have that whole "Recorded in a few days" kind of vibe that there previous album did. In most cases solid production really doesnít take anything away from a band, but the Eagles kind of lose a little charm with their new found studio wizardry.

The next couple tracks Just Nineteen and Cherry Cola are a couple of nice rockers. They return to that classic Eagles vibe, but on Just Nineteen Josh Homme seems to be edging up into the limelight, His Backing vocals really are a little high in the mix. Cherry Cola is one of my personal favorite cuts; itís a fun rocker, with ridiculous lyrics.

Up next is I like to move in the night itís another really good track, itís about dancin'. Something the Eagles feel very strongly about, and that was lacking in the first few songs. The bass on this one is at the center, it has a good distorted bass line, and some cool melodies. Next is Solid Gold this one is a bit of a clunker, the guitar is too clean, and I just donít dig the overall feel of the song. But the lyrics are sexy as hell and thatís always a plus.

After a rather disappointing track comes, Donít Speak this ones cool and it has sexy as hell lyrics that you just want to sing along to;

Donít move! I came to make a bang ya
Bang ya !
Donít move I came to bang ya !


The guitar is nice and fuzzy, and things donít drag on to long, itís just a good song. Next is Keep your Head Up , maybe there is some kind of sex joke that I donít get in this song, but the chorus sucks, the rest of the song is pretty damn good and saves it from being a complete disaster. Also maybe itís just me but it sounds like he screams "Ronald Reagan" at the end of the song.

Next up is The Ballad of Queen Bee and Baby Duck , I think this song about Josh Homme, and Brody Dale, but the hell if I know, itís a cool song, Jesse croons the lyrics like a champ, and the female vocals really add to the song. This one has a cool sound. After that comes Poor Doggie these drums sound really familiarÖ in fact itís almost the exact drums from ďFlames go higher" off there previous album Peace, love, Death Metal. But overall this is another good song,with a cool old timey bluesy sound..

Now comes, Chase the Devil this is the fastest song on the album, also its one of the best, it starts with a nice folk guitar bit, then goes into strait up rock and roll boogie, a personal favorite of mine. Following that up is Eagles Goth I still donít know why the hell it has that title. If anything I guess its cause of the moody ďOoohhís and Ahhh's" found on the song. Its a quick one, but its cool, I think of it as this albums "Midnight Creeper" This is another good cut, and its sexy as hell to boot.

Next up are the last two tracks Shasta Beast and Bag O' Miracles .The former is another good track, talking about how parents hate Jesse because heís so damn sexy. Bag O' Miracles is a nice calming hyme type of song. Itís a great track, and a really good way to close the album.

So what it comes down to is; should you buy ďDeath by Sexy...? Yeah, you should. Itís a good album, itís got a filler track or two, like any album, and sure itís a little short. But itís good none the less. Some of the new Ideas donít really work as well as they could have but the music is solid and, like there debut album itís damn fun to listen to.

Final Verdict:

3.5 / 5

if you got a dollar for everytime you described the lyrics as "sexy as hell".

this is a fairly decent review (i dont want to be too critical, ive written my fair share of shit reviews), but the general vibe of it sounds like its coming from a teenage girl who wouldnt think twice about sleeping with each band member multiple times. plus i didnt learn much about the album

i DID learn, however, that josh homme is involved in this project, so i'll probably want to eventually pick up a copy of either this or peace love and death metal.

Yes they are sexy and fun but this album was very poor. The best best song on the CD is I Want You Soo Hard (Boy's Bad News). That is a great song.. the other songs waren't that exciting!

im a josh homme fanboy, but until he releases a bad album.

Bathroom sounds, that would still be pretty good, some of the drums on lullubies were recorded in the can, thats a start right ?
