    Electric Endicott confirms that the gifted outsider who allowed us to glance into his psyche on You Think You Really Know Me hasn't stopped pursuing his singular vision of twisted pop music, just as he still hasn't figured out how to deal with the opposite sex, and who knows: if he ever did, he might never be able to make music again.

    While there's no equal to "6.4 = Make Out" or "Chromium Bitch" on Electric Endicott, Wilson stays true to his creepy titles ("She Forgot To Lock Her Door"), while doing what he's always done best: Making very effective pop that sounds distinctly like Gary Wilson.

    The older Wilson sings more smoothly and uses his avant-garde transitional tracks for swanky melody ("Kathy Kissed Me Last Night") as well as skronk-collage ("I Cry For Linda"), but he's bringing that new confidence to the sounds and girls of his nervous, self-torturing fantasies.

    When this sound is done with edge and freakiness, it can be a unique surprise, which is exactly what You Think You Really Know Me was. Electric Endicott is too often the opposite--predictable and numbing, even when it's good.
