Eagles Of Death Metal – EOFDM Presents

Eagles Of Death Metal – EOFDM Presents: 
(Boots Electric Performing The Best Songs We Never Wrote)
Universal – 2019
Rated: **

We never really mentioned any of the great albums that Eagles Of Death Metal have put out. Yes, great albums. All of them. Although I must confess that I still think that their first one was their very best. And I don’t think this one will rank highly among them. Not that it is bad. But it feels a bit, errr, silly? Cause many of the covers already came out earlier on EP’s and such and some versions are not that good or every memorable. And I loved Jesse Hughes version of The Distillers song The Hunger, when he did it back around 2014 (?), it was a righteous cover that always came up during a cover test session among friends, pretty unknown and now it’s out there, for the rest of the world to enjoy. The rest of the tracks are a bit too similar to each other and Jesse has recently gotten the urge to start wheezing and husking even more when singing… And he can do so much more… It is the same trick over and over, which does not add to the love for this record. And yes, sure it is fun to hear what the boys do with Abracadabra by the Steve Miller Band or Family Affair by Mary J. Blige. But we already heard So Easy by Guns N Roses and High Voltage by ACDC. I don’t know…. Jesse, I hope you were there the past months when Billy Gibbons and Dave Grohl attended the new Desert Sessions hosted by your pal Josh Homme. Cause I feel you need some serious kick to get the creative juices flowing again. But hey, I love you all the time…
