Andy Bell - Electric Blue - 2005
It's a good album. Lot's of good, noodling synth-work. Just as good as Vince's. But, unfortunately, not as creative as the pair together. Again, you get better magic in a group than you do on your own. There are a few memorable tracks here, but I would personally find this album as a filler between Erasure albums.
That's why it needed the better cover.
This cover was the first one I made when I started experimenting with style layers on Photoshop. That logo is just a plain old font that you can download from any free font site, but once you apply some layered texture styles, it turns into magic. I must say, I impressed myself with this one. I ran through a series of covers then where I used fractal art ripped from the web and applied layered logos instead of an actual cover. I liked it, it worked for me.
And it works here, right?
Look, I wasted an entire post talking about the cover rather than the music.
