Favourite Song on Album:

Listen to This Album When You’re:

When you want an uneven synthpop album.

Thoughts on Album Cover:

Love it! It’s a great cover that’s just as weird as this band.

Want to Own on Vinyl?:

Nah.

Final Thoughts:

Here’s the thing with Junk when the tracks hit, they hit hard. There are some truly amazing songs on this album. But as with most electronic albums I’ve come across there is a lot of filler short tracks that weigh it down. Ugh if only they’d cut this album in half and add more like the good songs on the album then we’d have something to talk about.
