 Man, did this group just decide they were going to stop being good, or what?

 I saw them live at Mercury Lounge after that D.U.M.E. EP randomly a few months ago. Kuperus ruined the entire show because she was pissed that people weren't dancing enough or into the new material and were screaming for "Contagious" and "Hand to Phone." They belligerently played one of the worst shows I've seen in a long time after that and K. said something slamming everyone in the audience for being stuck on the first album. It was a fucking rainy weeknight at a shitty venue in New York, Kylie Minogue couldn't have gotten people to dance. I guess maybe they have worse drug problems now? It's sad cuz concept-wise you could take their idea so much farther and they're just giving up. But I guess that's what happens when you get pigeonholed into being "electroclash", I mean, yeah...

 yes, it is as if Adult. has definitely decided to become heathens. seems we can't get anybody to just relax these days. everything has to be just the way they want it or screw it all.

 Heathens or not, they still released a lousy record.
