Yeah, not feeling the new album but it was its release that made me discover the first. Oh, so great. Weird synths, amazing vocals and most importantly - brilliant characterful lyrics. The idea of singing from the perspective of a failed entertainer is blinding, and helps the comedy and pathos exist much more naturally than on the new one.
Newie sounds a bit like someone doing ‘comedy’ kareoke over a Killers backing track. Don’t dislike it by any means, but not in the same league.
