I also have the full PSB catalogue. They're quintessential electro-pop. Intelligent lyrics, musically interesting, inventive arrangements, and a very distinctive vocalist. 

Whilst the way they use layered synths/samplers and drum machines is indeed very consistent throughout their career, their records also take on the sound of the day and the producer. As an example, "Being Boring", one of their best creations, on "Behaviour" has a wonderfully halcyonic and reminiscent sound which entirely suits the lyrics and mood of the song and is very much a product of the analogue synths of Harold Faltermeyer (think of the "Axel F" theme from Beverley Hills cop). 

So their output dates but also is strong enough to hold up well over time. Not a bad trick to pull off.
