WMBTPCOOS has to be one of the most surprisingly enduring albums that I know. I gave it, what I assumed was going to be, a cursory listen when it came out but then ended up buying the record and now I still play it quite regularly

Same for me. It's a classic album imo, and it clicked right away with me.
I've only heard the new one once; not sure it will be as classic for me, but it's what he does best and I really enjoy it.

Touchdown is already a classic for me

I like the ones that sound like they could have come from the b sides collection , Esp Teenage witch.
And Could there be a connection with Pink's kitchen witch?

Latter kind of seems like a glammed up version of the former?

Just listening to his latest, "Screen Memories" and I am really enjoying it. It feels like a guilty pleasure. Somehow it reminds me of Lansing-Dreiden as it also succeeds in recreating the new wave sound of the early eighties without aping/cloning it. Usually retro music bores me to death but this is different. He does his own thing and somehow it works. Surprised that there isn't more discussion on him around here.

New album's great!! Probably not better than Pitiless Censors but it's definitely more well-produced

Hell yes, new album rules. IDK if it's actually better than his last records but it's easily my favorite thing he's made.

Maybe it's because the production is better. Thinking why I had a hard time connecting with previous records of his, the production was probably it

Also the RA review suggested that the current political climate (of horrors) is a better context for his style of music, and it does feel like a timely record
