Fire

Is it disco punk? Dance metal? Who cares, especially when it's as awesome as Fire.

Is it disco punk? Dance metal? Who cares, especially when it's as awesome as Fire. Sure, frontman Dick Valentine may occasionally channel Tom Jones, and the album's lyrics are often absurd. But, really, such qualities only make the disc even more fun. Campy lead single "Danger! High Voltage," which features the screechy guest vocals of the White Stripes' Jack White, is the set's absolute highlight. It's the catchiest dance-rock track to come along in years. The U.K. is already on Electric Six's side; "Danger!" was a top five smash there. Hopefully, U.S. success is around the corner.—KC
