Ohhhhh boy. Another Trans Am album. I guess your questions should be as follows...

   1) 1) Do I need another album by Trans Am?

   2) Do I enjoy robot music?

   3) Did I like when Midnight Star used that voice synthesizer to sing "Freekazoids, Robots, please report to the dance floor"?

   OK, at one point I feel like I'm in that Tom Petty video where he's in an apocalyptic future and he and his bandmates find a storage shed full of all sorts of 20th century goodies like video games, Battlestar Galactica reruns, guitar solos, and slot machines. I liked that. I guess that's sort of the feeling I get, but I also get the feeling that I'm in the 20th century and there's this band that thinks synthesizers, bad early '80s computer graphics, and classic rock is funny.
