I actually think these are far better than the Amos Walker series, which is good but kind of self-conciously retro. I compare Walker to some modern rock bands who base a career out of aping Sixties-era punk. They can be very good, but you're always sort of realizing that it's a contrived exercise.

That said, I did like SUGARTOWN.
