In the case of Vincent Gallo, the indie filmmaker who seems to flaunt sexist and racist comments and, uh, "shares" himself with the likes of Chloë Sevigny onscreen, it's hard to look past the hoopla and care about his music. Fact is, his 2001 disc When was actually a pretty sentimental lo-fi excursion (despite a song dedicated to Paris Hilton), and his dreamy soundtracks have never distracted anyone from a blowjob scene onscreen. With Rriiccee, he's in instrumental rock mode--his collaborators this time being Woody Jackson and Nico Turner--which, if you tune out the rest of him, might sound pretty good.
