Louis XIV aren't for the faint of heart -- more like for the filthy of heart and dirty of mind, as they tear their way through their major-label debut, The Best Little Secrets Are Kept, like a marauding band of oversexed middle-school pirates.

No one—especially not me—asked for this narcissistic spunk juice. And yet here it is, shimmering with hollow thrills, garish makeup, and the faux swagger of a transsexual named Lola.

The Best Little Secrets are Kept — with staggeringly dopey comeons like ”Milk shake, milk shake, I love to feel you sweat” — is about as sexy as a late-night instant-message session.

I can see this music perhaps being palatable only during the third period of a hockey game where the home team is juicing the visitors 7-0, while I'm too busy being 12 years old and hammered drunk to notice, in one of those states like Florida or Texas where hockey's existence makes no sense, anyway.
