Dick Valentine (the lead vocalist) must hold some sort of record for his liberal use of the word "fire", I swear it's in every song on this fantastic debut, appropriately titled "Fire". Of course anyone buying this album will do so for the tremendous single "Danger! High Voltage", which is without a doubt one of the best singles in years, but this album's got plenty more to offer. Electric Six sure won't go down as any sort high coceptual musicians (well, you could call this a concept album, about fires and discoes, dancing and war on the dance floor), but this music is pure fun, highly polished disco-garage-rock performed with passion to spare (something most garage rock groups are seriously lacking in). The one-two punch of "Dance Commander" and "Electric Demons in Love" open the album with a bang, and the album pretty much maintains this momentum all the way through. "She's White" is full of classic lines, this song gets extra bonus points for "YEAH!" chant and actually using the word "junta" in a pop song, and no matter how many times I hear it, Valentine's emphatic "CONTINUE!" during the pause in "Improper Dancing" causes me to lose it every time. "Gay Bar" is a fine 2nd single and a bit closer to sound of the actual album than "Danger! High Voltage" is. 13 songs in just over 38 minutes, this is a quick satisfying listen and one of the most fun records I've heard in a long time. If you enjoyed "Danger! High Voltage" (and you did) then you can't go wrong with this album!

"You know it gets hotter than a microwave oven when you and I commence the lovin." The use of the word commence is so choice. I bought this on a whim after having a dream in which Dick Valentine and I compared false moustache collections. I need, I physically NEED to listen to it every day, that's how much it gets under your skin. And play Dance Commander loud. How loud? Is there blood trickling from your ears down the side of your head? Then it isn't loud enough.

"Fire" they call it. And that is very apt because as the previous review states it is in nearly every song! However don't let this repetition stop you from buying the album because the more important use of fire is in the way that the album burns along at a blistering pace. "Dance commander", the first track, will have you jumping about like a deranged monkey in a sack. There is a brilliant mix of cheesy funk, disco, slick bass and rocking riffs all the way through this album, they all combine to create an extremely entertaining record. Ideal for parties or discoes.
The vocals are great, hilarious in fact. The singles "Gay Bar" and "Danger! High Voltage" are challenged in their superiority by "Improper Dancing" and "I'm The Bomb" and add to the strenght of the album.
While it is quite short it makes up for this with the quality of the songs. OK it won't set the world alight (or on "fire") for it's melodies, lush vocals and meaningful lyrics but it's too chuffing funny to ignore!

This album (and band) has been described as gimmicky and just plain rubbish but I disagree. I wouldn't call myself a fan by a long shot. I've only ever heard Dance Commander, Danger! High Voltage and Gay Bar but after a friend of mine saw them play at Y NOT Festival in Derbyshire he said the gig was unbelievably hectic (in a good way) and people were going mad for them. As a result of the feedback from my friend we're going to see them when they come to Manchester and I have high hopes. Overall the album is really good, I enjoyed it a lot. There are a lot of good riffs, the drums have a really good sound to them and the songs are really catchy. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is considering giving them a listen and to anyone who hasn't heard them before I personally would take a gamble.

I bought this album after seeing the Video to "Danger! High Voltage" whilst flicking around on the satellite. I was instantly hooked by that song's tongue in cheek nature and musicianship. I decided to buy the album with it on and I found out that Electric Six had also been responsible for "Gay Bar"

I then listened to the whole album and I found that there were treasures all over it from "She's White" "Naked Pictures (of your mother)" "Synthesiser" and in fact none of the tracks were poor. I lent this to my brother and his 14 year old son wouldn't give it back for a year as he liked it so much!

All in all a great album with some of the campest lyrics you will ever come across plus some great tunes to boot

So here we are after the wait, the Electric Six album is upon us. After endless UK TV appearances where the band only played Danger! High Voltage and Gay Bar, I was left wondering if they had any more material.
Honest truth - no they don't, nothing else on the album matches the hilarious impact of Valentine's Spinal Tap vocalisations on the first single, and Gay Bar has to rank as the best riff of the decade so far.
But there's enough good stuff on here to merit a dozen or so listens, and given the state of rock and roll right now, that makes it a must-buy. Kind of Spinal Tap meets Sparks meets the Ramones meets Miss You-era Stones, the songs are short, and either are, or try to be funny, with simple blues-scale solos and occasional disco beats. A peculiar but winning mix.
Stand-outs - Danger! High Voltage, Gay Bar, She's White, Dance Commander, Synthesizer.
Fire in the disco!!!
