Mike Hadreas, who gives the perfume genius in his other life, does research on the causes of sound on his new album. He constantly scratches along the border to the brilliant pop song, but thank God he never goes so far that he could sink into any banalities. He's good when he indulges in melancholy ("Don't Let Them", "All Along"), but even better when he indulges in rocky bowieesque structures ("Grid"), electronic force ("Longpig") or gently pulsating artpop ("Fool").
