Cheap Time "Fantastic Explanations (and Similar Situations)"

(In the Red) I've heard of darker, heavier second albums, but this is the proverbial "whole 'nother level." Their first album had these Tennessee titans sounding like teen brats singing about having fun and going to the zoo. On the follow up everything is all serious and important and dynamic. The only two things that are consistent are the weirdly flat/off-kilter nasal vocals and the love of the 60s. Except this time the nasality is disturbing and the 60s-ocity has left the high school gymnasium dance and hit a weird Kinks-zone. So basically this is the Kongested Kinks. Kool.
