Editorial Reviews

The seventh Electric Six album (and sixth for Metropolis Records) is a record
designed to appeal to signs of every persuasion. Is Saturn rising in your seventh
house? Clusterfuck will smooth all those bad vibes out, brothers and sisters. Are
you an Earth sign? Jam It In The Hole is exactly what you need to put your mind
right. Too many planets fixed in your house? Take a listen to the E6 version of The
Spinners classic Rubberband Man and put your worries aside. Just remember, in
Electric Six s sky, every sign is compatible with YOU.

4.0 out of 5 stars Electric Six still rocks the house ! September 28, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Dick Valentine and crew have released a new album on such a regular basis, I've just come to expect a new one every autumn, and they have not disappointed me yet! The new album "Zodiac" is chock full of the Electric Six sound and off-kilter lyrical content. The songs are pretty strong, and infectious. My favorites are: "After Hours", "Cluster#*(k", "Rubberband Man" -a crunchy cover of the Spinners classic and "It Ain't Punk Rock". I think they've tried to bring in some of the flavor of their earliest songs (The "Fire!" and "Senior Smoke" albums are impossible to surpass, but always a good target to aim for). If you love E6, you're gonna like this album, If you've never heard of them, try this one out and then get the two aforementioned records and you'll be permanently infected.

"Zodiac" Is Definitely a keeper.

Well, you can tell its fall. The leaves are turning colors, the air has a crisp scent to it, football season is underway and Electric Six have come out with their yearly album.

Seriously, what other band these days can do this? 7 albums in 7 years, all of them very very good! At this point I just assume that every October I should be on the lookout at my music store for the new e6 album, since I know one is on its way.

This years entry, "Zodiac" is most definitely another fine addition to their already prolific catalog. Anyone who's heard e6 before can rest assured knowing they're still as good as they ever were. The energy and attitude remain unchanged, the music is still as busy and layered as it always was, the songs are still ridiculously fun and hooky as ever, and Dick Valentine is still penning lyrics like "You get the hotel/I'll get the box of wine/No sadder words have been spoken/Since the dawn of time" and "35 seconds til the countdown starts/25 seconds til the countdown starts/94 seconds til the countdown starts/It's the countdown to the countdown!"

The difference this time around is "Zodiac" isn't as guitar heavy as the last few albums. The big metallic power chords of "Kill" have been dialed back to allow for more synths, more bass, more keyboards, lots of ladies singing backup vocals, and an apparently new interest in instrumental codas, since a few of these songs have long, vocal-free periods of music. For that last part, the finest example would be "Doom and Gloom and Doom and Gloom" where the song ends in a hilarious "Dark Side Of The Moon" parody complete with saxophones, keyboards, a lady singing loudly and without words, and the slow spacey tempo that marks most of that classic album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly good September 2, 2013
By W. Kern
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I loved Electric Six since Fire, and after Señor Smoke I thought they were going downhill a little. They'd come out with a CDs worth of good songs every few releases or so. But Zodiac is pretty amazing. I can listen to this one all the way through without skipping.

4.0 out of 5 stars Still Good June 11, 2013
Format:Audio CD
Whenever E6 comes out with a new CD, I think how it's going to be the end and always prepare for the worst. But this one didn't let me down. There are maybe 3-4 songs that I don't like, but the rest of it goes down pretty smoothly, and even has room for a few songs I would call amazing.
I checked it out on a YouTube playlist and ended up buying it. I'd recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars E6 strikes back with perhaps their best album September 29, 2011
By dfm
Format:Audio CD
E6 has had some ups and downs over the years, going from novelty hitmakers to almost pure comedy to an experimental phase. All this culminated with last year's "Kill." "Kill" did indeed take Electric Six's dance rock roots and meld them with the new wave and garage rock elements of "I Shall Exterminate..." and "Flashy", but the results were... inconsistent. "Kill" certainly had a few good songs, but there was a lot of filler. It almost seemed that E6 was trying a bit too hard to recapture their past at times. As I said, some great songs, but some definite misses.

Thankfully, "Zodiac" is everything that "Kill" wanted to be, and more. The first six tracks on the record are easily the best songs Electric Six has ever recorded. From the apocalyptic nightclub-in-hell opener "After Hours" to catchy riff of "Countdown to the Countdown", the band sounds as sharp as ever. "Jam it in the Hole" is definitely a highlight; this song does indeed sound like what E6 set out to accomplish with "Kill": their dance-rock style tempered with maturity (well, for E6's standards) and vision. It's still fun and danceable, but it certainly doesn't classify as a novelty or guilty pleasure like "Gay Bar" did back in 2001.

"Cluster----!" is among the album's highlights. "The Rubberband Man" is an inspired cover of The Spinners' classic track. Though the album's second half can't keep up the first half's momentum, there are still some great tracks. Highly recommended for experienced Electric Six fans and newbies alike.
