Hooray. The new wave revival continues. Mixing the 'cool', nostalgic keyboard sound of Gary Numan and Flock of Seagulls with the even 'cooler' dark driving sound of Nine Inch Nails, the Faint take those 'cool' things make their own 'cool' sound. Cool! Wow, it's so cool that is's like new wave, but it's like people are doing it now! Awesome! I dunno; occasionally a band can actually pull off the new wave thing if there seems like a reason for incorporating that sound or feeling. Not this one.
