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.

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.

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.

As an avid Electric Six fan I was a tad disappointed in the last album (Kill) which seemed a bit.. forced, if you will. But Zodiac is simply fantastic. Every song is great, and more importantly, every song is true Electric Six. It's hard to pick favorites as I love em all (kind of like Michael Bolton... just kidding) but After Hours, Rubberband Man, Tables and Chairs, Cluster#*(k, etc are great, upbeat hits.

Buy, listen and enjoy

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.

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.
