    They still favor mannered Anglophile synth pop that has somehow retained its "alternative" branding three decades after the Eighties.

    Ultimately, the album's main fault is its resolute consistency, namely the fact that things basically run on one speed, and it gets repetitive quickly.

    Picture Show's mixed bag of angular post-punk, moody synths, and blasts of mainstream rock (see ''Everybody Talks'') doesn't quite have the wit, charm, or cool of its aughties touchstones.

    The album feels artistically rudderless.
