It's an odd album, this. I like it but I'm never quite sure how much, so it's bouncing up and down my top ten for the year. It's significantly weaker than his previous record, but there's still more to enjoy than most stuff I've listened to recently.


There's also loads about it that reminds me of Devo, mostly their New Traditionalists album. 'Pets', 'Touchdown' and 'The People Are Missing' all sound like they were lifted from that record. 'Over Phantom' has a 'Gut Feeling' vibe about it in that bouncy synth in the intro and 'Find Out' just straight shares its title with a Devo b-side. I imagine it's all in my head, though. :lol:
