The back of the CD case contains the following review:
The skyscraping amp inside the CD slick of Blues for the Red Sun - the second meisterwork by Palm Springs, USA natives, Kyuss - just looks loud. It's an image that recalls another era. A time when the battle wasn't to get into the pit but to put your head into one of the bass bins of the PA system. It used to be called fun though it played hell with the pressure in your ears. Maybe the gents in Kyuss used to get up to similar tricks and have set out reproducing those same sounds that pushed them to the brink of passing out. They certainly look like something straight out of a worn promo shot of crazed sixties decibel barbarians, Blue Cheer and sound that almost unbelieveably [sic] at times like a street punk version of the original Black Sabbath. Now let's face it - who doesn't need that. Yep, Kyuss are out to move your head and bowel and make the earth beneath your feet shudder. Mighty noble ideas if you ask me.
In May 2008, post-metal group Pelican debuted their first music video, "Dead Between the Walls." With "sand, fast cars, blistering colors, and just a focus on rockin’," the video was intended as an homage to the "Green Machine" video.
