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 Keptlike a marauding band of oversexed middle-school pirates. Indeed, main vocalist Jason Hill swaggers like a fully cocked smash-up between Bon ScottMick Jaggerand Bluebeard the Pirate, winking his way through the album like he was strutting down a catwalk.
