Electric Six, 'Switzerland' (Metropolis)

6
Switzerland
Critical Mass
Label: Metropolis

by David Peisner

Electric Six continue their life's work of turning rock's corniest riffs and dumbest impulses into an irony-heavy dance party. Guitar solos that crawled from a Foghat album mix with prog-rock synth homages and the sort of cheesy funk that Styx peddled on "Mr. Roboto." Stupidity this willful has its limits, but lyrics like "I gave you my heart/I gave you my soul/Now I'm just another number at the Centers for Disease Control" do have a sleazeball allure.
