The second album from the talented if somewhat crazy minds of Jesse "The Devil" Hughes and Josh "Baby Duck" Homme comes hot on the heels of the awesome `Peace, Love, Death Metal', is a must for all rock fans.
Completing the sometimes impossible task of writing catchy tunes whilst maintaining the `fun' of a live act, this album is a true masterpiece. Produced by "baby Duck" it remains fuzzy, wired and slight imperfections that makes you feel that it was recorded in one take, make no mistake though, this is a slick, fun album that will have everyone shuffling there feet and tapping there `one good finger' along with the magic boys.
It's hard to describe the effect this band can have on you, and they might not get you on the first listen, but buy this album, and the amazing first album, and give them the time they deserve. It's not as sophisticated as a Queens of the Stone Age album, and is no way near as angry or eclectic as a Desert Session or Mondo Generator album, but this is the nearest Rekords Rekords have to a party album. From beginning to end, this album is about one thing only, rock.
Since getting this and the first album, everyone I have played it too (and this includes older relatives) have had to admit that it's the best new thing on a long time. I realize this is a biased review, but get this album and you'll see what the `magic boys' have done to me! Hail the Eagles of Death Metal, they might just save rock for us all!
