  1. 80
    Submit to these tongue-in-cheek disco-rock readymades and it's as if you're hearing irony and an ass-kicking backbeat for the very first time. [Mar 2006, p.112]
  2. This is Electric Six's strongest work to date, and the fans who have stuck with them through their trials and tribulations won't be disappointed.
  3. 75
    Has moments of cheese-ball grace. [Mar 2006, p.95]
  4. Senor Smoke, luckily, is catchy and fun enough that the lyrics don’t entirely sink the album.
  5. Half the time, we get songs of ambiguous quality, with more filler lines than killer ones, a big change from Fire's all-or-nothing approach.... But when everything comes together, the results are massively more rewarding than anything on Fire.
  6. This album drops four consecutive hard rock stinkbombs to kick things off... Senor Smoke's saddest aspect, however, is its yearning for another dance-floor single.
  7. Difficult second album? In a way. In that it's difficult to listen to it without smashing your CD player to make it stop.

    "Mr President, make a little money sending people you don't know to Iraq. Mr President I don't like you, you don't know who to ROCK!!"

    God, I
    love Electric Six. Their first two albums are fan-bloody-tastic. I think they upped the comic ante in this one following 'Fire', but I still marginally prefer Fire. Hilarious band that get my adrenaline pumping every time Expand
