last 5 albums combined...the Oskar trilogy, Joemus, & Folktronic? I don't know why some people have arent as keen on the 21st century Momus, I think maybe some of the songs arent as immediately catchy as on past Momus albums, but I think musically they are better than anything Momus has done previously, the music is more intricate in arrangement and production (maybe to many people's distaste), and that they are at least just as strong lyricaly as well, but I guess many people prefer Momus poppier and more Pet Shop Boys-esque.

I'd say that one issue is that Momus stopped storytelling in the way he used to. And the stories he tells are not stories that listeners want to relate to. People can fantasize themselves in Bishonen and the Charm of Innocence etc. But hard to do that with any songs from the last albums. There are too many "random impressionistic words" lyrics.
