Yeah, but they always seem to be trying to recapture the "magic" of those two albums. Every album since then, in the press, the usually say that the new material sounds like one or both of those albums.
I totally disagree with The Ataris one.. at least that it's So Long Astoria. Blue Skies Broken Hearts had much more popularity, even as an indie-label release.
Not in terms of mainstream success, record sales, radio play, etc.
