For this review I'm going to stick to factual information about the DVD. Critical opinion of the film itself has already been taken care of by other reviewers...!

Notice the 18 cert on the DVD pack shot? And the 15 cert on the Amazon product info? To clarify: the film itself claims to be a 15 cert and (noted in very small writing on the back cover) the 18 cert is due to a trailer included on the DVD. You don't often see publishers placing "certificate inappropriate" trailers on discs, forcing the certificate of the package as a whole to be raised above that of the main feature for the sake of a trailer, but it's not unheard of.

It's safe to say that Electric Six are my favourite band of recent years, and they're way more than the novelty band some fools wrote them off as in the wake of early hits like 'Danger! High Voltage' and 'Gay Bar'. While the clever and highly amusing lyrics have been a constant, their musical style has ranged all over the place, meaning you never know quite what to expect from a new Electric Six album.

"Flashy", their fifth album as Electric Six, has 13 tracks crammed into a mere 45 minutes - which should tip you off that these are likely to be 13 quickfire little doses of the bizarre, and no ballads. And you'd be right about that.

To be honest, I wasn't very impressed… Read more
