Overall: Breaks out of the standard techno-pop mold, but somewhat forgettable.
Imagine if Sam Sparro was more pop than R&B/funk. That’s what you get with the Britain-based FrankMusik. With “Do it in the AM,” Musik adds more musicality and instrumentation to his techno-pop, keeping it from being redundant and predictable. In lyrics, Musik is brazen like Sparro, forwardly discussing unrequited love and romance drama. His vocals are solid. While some of the production is creative and the vocals are acceptable, the album borderlines on forgettable. The 1st few tracks are annoying, mechanical and mildly boring. The rest are attractive in parts, but not holistically. It’s worth at least one listen, as you might find a few songs likable.
