Product Description

Product Description

In 2009 Frankmusik is that rarest of pop prospects; one that has manufactured his own image and music. Complete Me is an auteur’s album, a break-up record written about one girl. While his contemporaries use one producer for one track, one writer for another and end up with a hotch-potch of borrowed sentiments and a patchwork of production sounds, Vincent Frank wrote and produced these tracks in his bedroom in Croydon. The album is an electronic love letter, the soundtrack to an eternal summer of adolescent heartache, equal parts light and dark. With a dozen remixes to his name for everyone from avant-garde Brooklyn act Telepathe to The Pet Shop Boys; Frank has also produced two tracks on the forthcoming album by No 1 grime pop star Tinchy Stryder, as well as his debut single "Better Off As Two" reaching the upper reaches of the charts.

Amazon.co.uk

Complete Me marks the long-awaited long-playing debut from Frankmusik, aka Vincent Frank--a former BMX rider and student at the London School Of Fashion who packed in both to become a do-it-yourself pop star. Accordingly, this is a pop music several steps away from the current stage school/talent show consensus--still invested with big choruses and billowing synthesisers, but delivered with an oddball charisma and quirky intelligence. Described by Frank as "a break-up record written about one girl", Complete Me channels desire, loneliness and melancholy through a kaleidoscope of styles, from pristine pop--see early breakout track "Confusion Girl", here polished into a grand, strings-laden production redolent of Mika or the Pet Shop Boys--to glitched-up synth-pop ("Done Done", "3 Little Words") and mischievous mash-up ("When You’re Around", which pilfers the harpsichord line from The Stranglers’ "Golden Brown" and chops it up into stuttering new melodies). The climax, or at least a sense of closure, comes with "Vacant Heart"--an epic heartbreak number that blows up the emotions of a collapsing relationship into epic widescreen. -- Louis Pattison

This is a hugely enjoyable collection of songs that offers much variety within it's stuttering, jerky electronic template. Vincent Frank's love of 80s pop translates here into warm melodies ('Confusion Girl', '3 Little Words')and genuinely heartfelt ballads (the epic 'Your Boy'). Standout tracks are the propulsively uplifting 'Better Off As 2' and the oddly moving 'Done Done'. Sound effects that chop up the vocals or layer them on top of one another are used throughout but are used artistically to add impact. Co-producer Stuart Price has smoothed over the some of the rougher edges that were evident in the earlier versions of this otherwise self-written and self-produced debut album - but Vincent's personality remains stamped over every track. It's a great pop album that consistently delivers memorable hooks and a new perspective on what can be achieved by electronic pop.

Frankmusik (Vincent Frank by name, nee Turner apparently)
is with us at last. Teaser EPs and singles have been whetting
our appetites for some time now. "Better Off As Two" and
"Confusion Girl" both deserved more attention than they received.

It is the way of the world sometimes that the best of
the best have to wait for their moment in the sun.

If it's sunshine you're after then look no further.
This scintillating little piece of electro-pop perfection
has the sun bursting out of every musical pore.

You've probably gathered by now that I like it.
I like it a lot!

Although not without flaws (a bit of judicious pruning might
have said goodbye to the somewhat mediocre 'Wonder Woman',
'Time Will Tell' and the strangulated Stranglers recreation
'When You're Around') Frankmusik is still a very fine album.

Other than those two highly infectious singles 'In Step',
'Gotta Boyfriend', '3 Little Words' and 'Done Done' all romp
along merrily with strong melodies and memorable hooks.

Young Mr Frank has a lovely voice : warm and secure in the middle;
piercingly accurate in the upper reaches of his fearsome falsetto.

Gentler songs such as 'Your Boy' (the album's highlight)
and the curiously affecting 'Run Away From Trouble' bear
witness to his undoubtable song-writing talents.

Writer, performer, producer. All this AND perfect cheekbones!!
He's got the lot really and deserves to succeed.
Toto, Dorothy and all her friends will doubtless love him.

(The second bonus disc on the Deluxe Edition delivers
interesting reinterpretations of the same material for
those who would dare to dance).

A Cracking Debut!

Highly Recommended.

My girlfriend has been going on about Frankmusik for a while but it wasn't until i heard his acoustic version of the Pet Shop boys "its a sin " on the Dermot Oleary show that I saw how much talent this guy has.
I then caught him live by chance at a Keane gig and I was blown away by his unique voice and the intensity of his performance.
I am into "classic" bands ranging from Radiohead and Kings of Leon to new acts such as Friendly Fires. Recently the new wave of electronic music has excited me but once you scratch beneath the surface there is little substance. However Frankmusik feels real - i have read that he writes and produces everything himself so that is probably why. There is real depth and honesty here.
It feels like finally Britiain has produced a truly eccentric male pop star , the likes of which we haven't seen since David Bowie and Bryan Ferry.
This should be the start of a long career!!

I tracked down Frankmusik on Myspace having missed him supporting Keane back in January. I liked what I heard and like a lot of his fans have waited and waited for his debut album to come out. Well they do say good things come to those who wait. This album is a collection of upbeat 80s influenced pop gems which leave a good feeling in the heart. All the songs are about relationships and I have never known an artist to make a break up song sound so upbeat and damn right euphoric!

The album is strong from start to finish with a beautifully crafted song at the close of just Vincent and piano which shows a more singer-songwriter side to him. This is obviously a man with a huge talent and I think he will be big, probably by the 2nd album, which is no bad thing.

Stand out tracks, well there are loads, but the main ones being Confusion Girl, Complete Me and the beautiful Your Boy (which sounds like Keane the more I hear it!). So do yourself a favour - if you are fan of get up and go tunes with catchy choruses that you can sing along to then add this to your collection. You won't be disappointed!

Those who have been patiently waiting for Frank's debut for the past year or so won't be disappointed.

It's definitely rare to see this sort of songwriting talent. Frank may be lost in the midst of the current fad of keyboard-wielding females, but there's no doubt of the strength of these songs.

You get a sense that Vincent Frank is nothing short of a perfectionist, having tweaked and re-produced each track- sure to anger the purists- but if anything, Stuart Price's production has enhanced the songs- making them big pop productions for a much bigger stage.

Stand out tracks include the singles '3 Little Words,' 'Better off as Two,' and the spectacular ballad 'Vacant Heart.'

This is a fully-deserved 5 stars for an excellent debut. Worth picking up to see what the fuss is about.
