There’s something about the new wave sound that will always be associated with the ‘80s. While the Bad Doctors’ version of new wave synth has a bit of a post-punk edge to it, they’re still obnoxiously connected to a period of music that we should go ahead and forget about as soon as possible. If you like your ‘80s synth pop modernized for 2013, by all means, indulge yourself with this record. But if you want to let the sound of the past lie where it belongs (in the bargain bin at your local record store), avoid this record.
