This review is from: Desert Session 9&10/Desert Sessions (Audio CD)
Can this man do no wrong? Two legendary bands, numerous fantastic side projects & it just gets better & better. With an inspired move to bring in the amazing PJ Harvey as well as roping in the usual suspects (Chris Goss, Alain Johannes etc) Mr Homme has done it again. 'There will never be a better time' is PJ to the max, a coruscating vocal teamed with a flamenco-ish giutar for maximum effect, 'In My Head...Or Something' sounds like QOTSA covering a happy Joy Division and 'I Wanna Make It Wit Chu' is the coolest lounge song I've ever heard.
In short, its everything you would expect from the Desert Sessions & more - wildly eclectic (the brilliantly titled 'Subcutaneous Phat' is a dance record sounding not too disimilar to The Chemical Brothers), throwaway tracks like 'Shepherds Pie' (a song about shepherds pie) but mainly containg such moments of raw beauty that you just wish every record could be recorded like this one.
