I can never get into The Lexicon of Love

And I love ALL the albums you've named (if we stop at Music For the Masses DP-wise). Non-Stop Erotic Cabaret IS one of my favorite ever albums. And I can never figure out why I can't get into The Lexicon of Love. The songs are alright. I guess I just never get the kick out of it somehow.
But also The Lexicon of Love doesn't really sound like synth pop of the period, isn't it? It's posh, not minimal. It's got a guy who wants to be a crooner as a vocalist. It has overblown massive production.
Do you have an opinion on Ultravox (mainly John Foxx period) and Japan (mainly Tin Drum period), by the way?
