Electric Six’s electronically tinged arena rock may sound like it’s supposed to parody dance music, but that’s the beauty of it all. These guys are for real, and the dance rock nuances are so very intentional. In fact, when playing SENOR SMOKE, the Detroit outfit’s 15-track feel-good sophomore effort, the feeling that a drug-fueled orgy has just been unleashed is expected. This is the ultimate white boy funk, as songs like “Bite Me” and “Dance Epidemic” compliment both Foreigner and Kool & The Gang perfectly, only with a firmer tongue planted in cheek. Yeah, it’s a little on the metrosexual side of the fence, but damn, the beers will fly down the gullet when this disc is playing at the next soiree you attend.
