Electric Six, 'Flashy' (Metropolis)

7
Flashy
Critical Mass
Label: Metropolis

by Matthew Perpetua

Electric Six's fifth album may begin with "Gay Bar Part Two," but the sardonic sextet are only parodying casual fans' desire for a sequel to their flukey 2003 debut hit, Fire. Flashy expands on the themes of the group's more recent efforts, delving into the excesses and vacuous nihilism of a post-TMZ America. Much of the record satirizes plastic surgery and oversexed macho men, but despite the ironic humor, there's a compassion in the music that's unexpected coming from a band best known for a Taco Bell–referencing novelty hit.
