Probably the best one...
on 17 October 2010
Well i have all the Electric Six albums and think they are all great. Fire and Kill being my favourites. After Kill, i did have high expectations for this album, and E6 delivered on all. This is the same E6 you would expect, but with a bit more synth and experimenting mixed in.Dare i say, it is even a bit camper!( Sometimes with a a hint of Scissor sisters, Pink Floyd and even The Beach Boys thrown in, in places). I think nearly all the songs are brilliantly crafted and constructed and sound fuller, with keys, piano and guitars all mixing in well.
Every song could be a single, unlike my views on the albums Switzerland and Flashy which had a few weak moments. I think Electric Six should be up there with some of the greatest rock bands ever, if people were willing to look beyond the Danger and Gay Bar they are most famous for and see that they are actually amazing musicians who write amazing, feel good rock songs, with some great sexy, dirty, and funny lyrics to add to the enjoyment.
