iTunes Review

The brazenly kitschy sound of Electric Six veers in a techno-trash direction on Heartbeats and Brainwaves, an album crackling with overheated eroticism. The Detroit combo downplays its guitar crunch in favor of a pulsating synth-pop approach that recalls Soft Cell, Depeche Mode, and similar pioneers of the genre. Amid robotic beats and twitches, frontman Dick Valentine snarls out tales of extreme lust, occult intrigue, and bad meal choices with a leering swagger. The ominous trudge of “We Use the Same Products”, the chant-along thump of “Food Dog,” and the eerie atmospherics of “Psychic Visions” drench their keen wit in thick coatings of gleeful vulgarity. The Six dip into discozoid funk on “It Gets Hot”, deliver an ear-snagging chorus hook on “Hello! I See You!”, and reclaim their metal edge on “Gridlock!” As usual, they play things as straight as possible, no matter how outrageous the proceedings become. Taken on its own terms, Heartbeats and Brainwaves is the sort of hell-bent assault on good taste that the band’s fans have come to know and crave.

Customer Reviews

Beyond brilliant

This is another brilliant album by one of the most underrated bands ever, an amazing album from start to finish. Every song is catchy and once again Dick charms his way into soul. Long live Electric Six!

Another brilliant album!

Just when I think they can't keep getting better they release another amazing album full of classics.
This one does not disappoint, with instantly catchy songs such as "it gets hot" (seriously cannot stop singing along to this!)
Then the usual brilliant songs that are always on there that grow on you slowly until you find yourself singing them to yourself all day like "Free samples"
I just hope there are many more albums after this one!

Blew My Brainwaves!

I couldnt agree anymore with the other comments about this album! Electric Six one of the greatest bands to ever exist and very underrated indeed! There last album Zodiac was a corker but this one absolutely blows yah mind! Tracks like 'The Intergalactic Version' (which has instantly become my all time fave E6 song) is just beyond catchy, Then you have gems like 'It gets hot, Free samples, Hello i see you and Psychic visions' which will become instant live faves. Dick Valentine and co have once again delivered another masterpiece. 10/10

Formerly known as the Wildbunch, the Detroit sextet Electric Six mix garage, disco, punk, new wave, and metal into cleverly dumb, in-your-face songs like "Danger! High Voltage," which reached number two on the British charts early in 2003. Singer Dick Valentine, guitarists Rock and Roll Indian and Surge Joebot, bassist Disco, and drummer M. formed the Wildbunch in 1996 (keyboardist Tait Nucleus? joined the band later), releasing their debut single, "I Lost Control (Of My Rock & Roll)," and the eight-track...
