Pop Underground was him obviously getting that electric pop sound out of his system. I'm glad it was contained to 4 songs, only one of which I found completely weak.. the other three were fine and I think Synesthesia is one of the best he's written in a while. I remember reading something that he said he's returning to the piano 'in a big way' whatever that means. I get the vibe that it's gonna be piano heavy but won't sound like TGP or EIT. It'll be interesting what happens.
