Editorial Reviews

Electric Six return with the follow-up to their debut Fire, with their new album, Senor Smoke. Including the single "Radio Ga-Ga", it also contains the free internet-only single "Vibrator". Senor Smoke is classic Electric Six floor-filling foot stompers topped off with the band's unique wit, which saw them enter the public's consciousness with the likes of 'Gay Bar' and 'Danger High Voltage'. Warner Bros. 2005.

First off, forget what you heard and what you think you know about the guys in E6. These songs on Senor Smoke have more rock, more hidden commentary, and more dirty one liners than anything else out today.

From the first song, Rock n' Roll Evacuation, which is just a minor warm-up, you get the sense of the maddness that is to come. An example is the impressive statement of the lack of "rockin'" Mr. "Dub-ya" has to offer us, and I mean us as the "Evil Generation".

Some of my favorites are "Bite Me", just for the silly lyrics that Dick screams with conviction, to "Dance Epidemic" for the ultra hip porno riff as well as the mention of much needed sex, to "Dance-a-thon 2005" for the pure enjoyment of the keyboard!!! Yeah Nucleus!!! Not to forget, the ever repeatable hit song, "Vibrator" in which we all become Dick's girl in an elevator, can it get much better???

These song have an unbelievable edge of both humor as well as high brow intellectualism, yeah sounds weird but take a listen to "Jimmy Carter". One thing is for sure, Electric Six has immense talent in making full sounding danceable nu-clear music that kids everywhere should, and will be improperly dancing to in the middle of the streets.

Finally, the album is released here in the states! Personally I enjoy this one equally if not more than Fire. In fact, my two favorite Electric Six songs are Jimmy Carter and The Future Is In The Future, both on this release. It still has all the energy of their previous release (and hopefully their next release, which will be out in a few months - and this time it'll be available in the US).

Since the album's already been out for a while and there's nothing different about this release, I'll spare you the full review. Others have done a much better job on the import version's page.

Enjoy!

I am extremely disappointed that everyone seems to want to compare this album to Fire. If I wanted to fall into that category, I would agree that, yes, this doesn't really sound anything like Fire. In fact, if it weren't for the fact that Dick Valentine's vocals are rather distinct, I wouldn't have been able to tell you that E6 made this album.

With that said, I have to tell you that I am completely enamored with this album. I love the fact that this features more dance-groove-oriented music (with the exceptions of "Jimmy Carter" and "Taxi To Nowhere"). It's a proven fact that Electric Six makes it their sole responsibility to make you dance. If you don't get up out your seat and bust a move, well, quite frankly, they haven't done their job.

A lot of these songs have potential to be singles. My personal favorite on the album is "Dance Epidemic", which is my official "Song of 2005". I also love the fact that the boys decided to flex their funny bones and added some extremely hilarious lyrics to their already booty-shaking rhythms. Who else has the balls to sing about vibrators or the fact that our current president doesn't know how to rock?

I highly recommend this album for some great windows-rolled-down, stereo-blasting, hot-summer-day listening. Or, if you're looking to spice up your next party or romantic encounter, this album surely aims to please.

Like many an E6 fan, I remain mystified as to why this wildly unique and innovative band has not blown up to monstrous levels of popularity. After hearing the album "Fire" back in 2004, I nervously anticipated seeing a gang of hip young sillouhettes spazzing around in a new IPod commercial to the song "Dance Commander" at any moment. In a purely selfish way, I kind of love the fact that they still have only an underground cult following(it's way more enjoyable to attend live performances in smaller venues with more intimate groups of hardcore fans), but I do hope these guys eventually get more of the recognition they deserve.

Owning every bit of sound ever recorded by Electric Six that I could get my obsessive little hands on, I say without a doubt that Senor Smoke is their tightest and most consistent album so far. Every song pops, rocks, bumps, and grinds in all the right places. Dick Valentine's hilarious exaggerated rock god/sex symbol (yet somehow still geeky average guy underneath) persona is in its finest form here, as are his brilliantly irreverant lyrics, which manage to incorporate an impressive spectrum of subjects ranging from male hyperlust to fast food to pop culture to politics(!). And the music is hooks galore! If you like hard rock with your funk and disco with your punk, and you agree with Frank Zappa that humor DOES belong in music, then please please for the love of the Supreme Being, pick up this album!! If you're not pumping your fist in the air, shaking your butt and smiling, then you should probably mention it to your physician. Cause maybe you're slightly anemic and need a B-12 shot or something.

This is the best music i have ever heard in my entire life, if you though that fire was good, you will be blown away. there is not one bad or even mediocre song on this album. Rock and roll evacuation, Devil nights, jimmy carter, and dance epidemic are the best songs. The focus of this album has shifted from nuclear war on fire, to zombies. You cant go wrong with this
