It's not really a question of humor. I just think Pat was writing much stronger melodies back then, and with a lot more variety. I miss the "nursery rhyme" songs today, and I miss the "Caroline Wheeler"-type adrenalin. With recent albums, he has seemed to get into this jangle rut, where he plays a peppy little chord progression and then just fits-in-as-many-syllables-as-he-possibly-can-before-the-progression-turns-ar ound-and-starts-over. No melody at all really, just chords. And as I said before, I think the Spacemen 3 influence has been detrimental.
