  1. Electric Six make junk music for junk times, and they’d be nigh-unbearable if they weren’t so much fun.
  2. 60
    A whip-smart, 13-song satire on FM-radio machismo and lyrical cliches. [Nov 2006, p.140]
  3. For a bunch of comedians, the Electric Six sure are talented musicians. [Dec 2006, p.189]
  4. Unfortunately, despite some nice tunes, the formula seems a little, well, formulaic. [11 Nov 2006, p.43]
  5. Unfortunately, the frontman's crazed growl dashes any nuanced developments the band has reached in their songwriting, maintaining a grating tone consistently throughout.
  6. No band can survive on novelty alone, and Electric Six still thrive on parody rather than invention. [Dec 2006, p.134]
  7. Switzerland lacks any track with even a tenth of the standout potential of Danger! High Voltage. And it's a critical absence for Switzerland, because there's nothing on this record that makes you want to hear it a second time.
