Frankmusik Hitting The Road With Erasure

As we know, Frankmusik produced Erasure's upcoming 14th (!!!) studio album Tomorrow's World (out October 4). I'm actually listening to it now, and you can relax, Andy and Vince fans — it's light years better than 2008 offering A Light At The End Of The World.

The chorus of the first single "When I Start To Break It All Down" is pretty epic. The song starts off slow, but once it things get into full swing, we're left with a proper sing-along jam on our hands. Another standout: "What Will I Say When You're Gone." Overall, it's pretty safe to say that Erasure has got groove back.

    Poor Light at the End of the World gets no respect. The first half was actually quite good (sorry, but I like Sucker for Love)...Sunday Girl, I Could Fall in Love, Fly Away...great songs. The second half was moodier and maybe a bit lesser, but the whole is not that much less than Nightbird really. Now Other People's Songs, Union Street, and Loveboat...
