Product Description

BBC Review

It’s almost a shame that Electric’s Six video for Gay Bar is one of the funniest – and therefore one of the greatest – promos of all time. It’s a detail, along with an erroneous link to Jack White at the height of The White Stripes’ fame, which eclipsed the fact that their Fire debut was a consistent party album and that they’ve released more than an album a year since, perpetually in search of a good time, armed with a wit like a razorblade disguised as a banana and absolutely no sense of decorum.

Kill’s charm is predictably unpredictable, unapologetically loud in every possible sense at nearly every opportunity and lewd whenever they feel themselves getting bored. Body Shot gets their latest adventure started better without its (mercifully banned) video of pensioners getting naked, but still sounds like a retread of Dance Commander. Much better is the road-trip rock of Escape From Ohio, with its straight up storytelling of “looking for a good time and a radio station we can trust” visceral without resorting to shock tactics. Anyone who’s ever been stuck in a town they can’t stand will find themselves either tapping their foot or punching the air to it, depending how high on life or anything else they’re feeling when they hear it for the first time.

Likewise, Rubbin’ Me the Wrong Way is equally pleasing: a frustrated love song that sounds like it’s tragically tangled in an electric fence, thanks to all the buzzing synths that accompany it. One Sick Puppy alludes to Jesus one verse, rock and roll the next, and generally gives you the feeling that Dick Valentine’s band of musical hedonists aren’t happy unless they’re cooking up a disarming juxtaposition or looking for a sacred cow to barbecue. Steal Your Bones completes Kill’s excellent middle third, a piano-led power ballad that makes apologetically robbing the grave of your friend seem both excusable and understandable.

The rest might slightly tail off in comparison, but sets the record as straight as a band as eccentric and free-spirited as Electric Six will allow it. --Alistair Lawrence

5.0 out of 5 stars The Joy Of Six 13 April 2010
Format:Audio CD
Straight off the bat, let's get one confession out in the open, I freely admit to being a huge, dedicated, Electric Six fan. I have all of their albums and have been lucky enough to have seen them live on over a dozen occasions. However, it's fair to say that whilst I have always stuck with them and they have always delivered the goods on at least a few tracks on each album, the last couple of records "I Shall Destroy Everything Around Me Which Restricts Me From Being The Master" and "Flashy" have been a little patchy and I was starting to wonder if they'd ever make an album as good as "Senór Smoke" or "Switzerland" again, turns out I needn't have worried! This is an absolute belter of an album that can stand shoulder to shoulder with their best work and is one of the best albums I've heard in the last year.
The band sounds magnificent on this record, the guitars seem louder, the rhythm section sounds crisp and full, Tait Nucleus's keyboards are well showcased both when delivering catchy hooks and equally when subtly adding nuance in the background and Dick Valentine's vocals are right there front and centre sounding absolutely enormous.
The band still occasionaly break out the disco-influenced dancey feel that was their calling card early in their career and Valentine's lyrics still contain the dark humour and off-the-wall moments that are so often his trademark, but in general they have (whisper it) matured into a powerful rock band with a diverse set of influnces which make sense when blended together through their unique filters and they aren't shy of mixing genuine sentiment and political points in with their strange flights of fancy these days.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top Album 25 Dec 2009
Format:Audio CD
I have been a massive Electric Six fan since their first album (under that name) Fire. Upon hearing this album, I was not disappointed.

Although some parts of the album are pretty off the wall (as you'd expect) it also boasts some of their best hard-rock moments. Personally, I think 'Waste of Time and Money' is one of their best songs to date, and it's not alone with other awesome tracks like 'Escape from Ohio' and the slightly slower, cheesier 'Steal Your Bones'.

If you're not a fan of the band, you probably won't enjoy this much more, but any E6 fans should get this album right now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Packed with energetic genre-spanning belters. 10 Dec 2009
By chimney
Format:Audio CD
As a follower of this band since they were the Wild Bunch I have to say that I love this record. It's not necessary to compare it to older albums as it stand happily on it's own merit. I recently saw them touring this album and the new tracks, performed with real vigour, blended in perfectly with the old crowd-pleasers and were thrilling.
In my opinion we live in and era of bland, formulaic drudge-rock/commercial-indie pants-recordings. Mercifully this album is a beacon of exciting, heart-pumping, wry-smiling, loud rock'n'roll. Buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars KILL CD ~ ELECTRIC SIX 1 Feb 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is one really good album by E6 .If you are already a hardened E6 fan like me and love the first two albums especially you will have no problem with this album at all.The second tracks lyrics had me laughing out loud .Sat eating cardboard whilst sitting in fathers station wagon ! only E6 could write lyrics like that and keep delivering album after album..which today is very unheard of..Well worth the money.

4.0 out of 5 stars Different 8 Dec 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I don't like it as much as the previous, thats why it only has 4 stars but it is one of those albums that grows on you, it is a mix of tunes in the weird way of Electric Six and worthy of having if you're a fan but it doesn't seem to have the unusal edge that some of the previous albums have.
