CRITIC REVIEWS

NME
Sexy, fierce and occasionally very, very silly, this is an album made to be played on jukeboxes in backwater biker bars the world over, loudly.

Exclaim!

After 11 tracks of lewd, enlivened and indulgent riffage, it appears time hasn't rusted the swivel and swagger of Jesse Hughes and Josh Homme; Zipper Down finds the Eagles of Death Metal as greased up and ready to rock as ever.

The Line of Best Fit
There's little in the way of songwriting progression from any of their three previous LPs and that's perfectly fine because what EoDM do, they do well.
75
Consequence of Sound
Sure, it sounds bigger than the band’s first three albums, but this is still EODM we’re talking about, and the standout songs confirm that to be a positive.

AllMusic
From its title and artwork on down, the album spotlights the duo's jokey side, and again, the results are mixed.

Rolling Stone
With their fourth album, they've reached a critical mass of smirk.

Attacked by terrorists, so give them high ratings ... and because, as someone from the team QOTSA

Live this record makes for great fun. Recorded... It comes off like the ugly duckling of QOTSA. Some potential, but lacking true sophistication. Soon EODM will be regarded as the dirty old men of rock 'n roll even Viagra won't be able to help. Groupies beware.

Like previous EoDM albums, there is plenty of fun and joking around to be had. But it will not be something you treasure forever.
