I'm not sure what to make of 21ST CENTURY BOY, a strange mixture of electronic manipulation and glam rock. "Tonight," for instance, has an urgency that could make Freddie Mercury jealous, though the twangy guitar might freak him out. The vocals on "Frisco Bay" aren't meant to convey anything meaningful, other than contribute some texture... though the banjo does plenty of that. But the electronic throb that seemingly infects every track grows tiresome very quickly. Even the acid line or the wah-wah guitar on "Experience" can quite eliminate it. The throb tends to flatten out the album as whole, making it sound oh-so-repetitive. Finally, when he slows down on "Whenever You Want" does some differentiation show. But "Till I Die" and "Baby You" kick it back in. Oh well, at least "Giterkatze" has some catchiness to it.
