Death By Sexy - Average, Based on 2 Critics

AllMusic - 80
Based on rating 8/10

Taking things a little more seriously -- but never too seriously -- the second time around, the Eagles of Death Metal's Death by Sexy keeps the freewheeling, just-for-the-hell-of-it vibe that made Peace Love Death Metal so much fun and improves on it with more focused songwriting. This songwriting, as the title Death by Sexy implies, is obviously focused on a raunchy good time, which the album delivers in spades. Not so obvious, though, is how fine the line between lusty and skanky can be.

The Guardian - 40
Based on rating 2/5

Josh Homme's day job is as leader of Queens of the Stone Age. In his spare time, however, he brings his stoner rock mentality to an array of side projects, including the Desert Sessions collaborations, and the Eagles of Death Metal, in which he supplies drums for a blues-tinged garage rock band with one of his buddies singing. The result is somewhat akin to how Electric Six would sound if they were drinking tepid water instead of vodka.
