Mike Skinner claims that Computers & Blues will be his last album as The Streets. Ten years ago, the hype that greeted his stories on modern-day British youth seemed in stark contrast to his self-conscious modesty. But now that the Mercury Prize nominations have disappeared, it's easier to enjoy these poppy takes on U.K. garage and how modern technology has changed everyday life, from the fractured romance of "Blip on a Screen" to the Internet withdrawal of "Puzzled by People." Skinner should continue to push things forward, but that's hard to do when people aren't listening anymore.
