The first album with these guys was interesting. Nice addition of early electronica to the sound. The "radio style broadcast" is horrible. They just used a filter (or a megaphone) and used a whiney "announcer" voice between tracks. Just give us the music. The announcer detracts and does not add to the experience. Not sure how to take the rest of the music. Its... OK. I guess you get what you pay for.
