Electric Six is one of the few bands that seems to get better with each album. I haven't heard Flashy, so I can't comment there, but other than that, each album seems better than the last. This one has a good mix of songs that sound good right off the bat as well as songs with staying power, fast songs as well as slow songs. E6 sounds as fun as ever, with the usual semi-satirical lyrics (such as in "Steal Your Bones": "Evolution rolls the dice, we can be so much more precise"). They have a rare ability to produce lyrics that are funny, but in a way that you can almost believe they aren't joking. They remind me a little of Mindless Self Indulgence, but much more subtle and with a more rock-ish sound. My favorites for this album are "One Sick Puppy," "Escape from Ohio," "I Belong In A Factory," and "Simulated Love." If you like this album, I'd also highly recommend their I Shall Exterminate Everything Around Me That Restricts Me From Being The Master one.
