On 12 Desperate Straight Lines, the guitars occasionally get abrasive, particularly on the stomper "Palm of Your Hand". But his approach could use some experimentation beyond just throwing in new wave guitar sounds, which sound foreign and out of place on the Cure-striving "Please Ask For Help".
For 12 Desperate Straight Lines, the songs are still there, only this time some of the looseness of the self-produced sessions comes into play and the end result ends up being a marked improvement.
The second album "12 Desperate Lines" by the one-man-band (Michael Benjamin Lerner)Telekinesis is a great follow-up to the debut, if somewhat different in emotion and subject matter. The first album was poppy, fun, and upbeat. The songs, although criticized for not being extremely original, were simply,very catchy power pop, and although stylistically similar, the songs on the second disc have a darker edge.

12 Desperate Straight Lines. Label: Merge Records. The brains behind Telekinesis is Michael Benjamin Lerner, and he's out to rock - well, at least compared to his debut. His hushed acoustic and breezy power pop remains, but for his sophomore effort there's a kick to it, a passion that blazes a little brighter
