Frankmusik - Do It In The AM

Frankmusik is probably best known for his producing and remixing work: from Ellie Goulding's album track Wish I Stayed, to the upcoming album by Erasure.  Many forget his debut album 'Complete Me' and its quirky electro-pop, the excellent 3 Little Words especially.

But now he's lost all semblance of personality.  Latest album, 'Do It In The AM' was released this week, containing a monotonous series of souless, 80s inspired synth-pop-RnB; tracks ranging from upcoming single No I.D (about having... erm... no I.D), to the title track (about shagging in the morning).  How inspired.  The fact it features Far East Movement (of G6 fame) only fuels the fire on which this record belongs.  Annoyingly catchy, this track and album are pretty abominable.

The last track is titled Cut Me Down.  Don't tempt me.
