New ABC Lockdownload Single Available


New ABC Lockdownload Single Available

New ABC download single available as of yesterday. I've heard that it's for a 24 hour period only but have not seen any facts relating to that. The single is… a mixed blessing. Always great to hear Fry but the production/arrangement does the slight tune no favors. Thoughts?

Got it yesterday. I think it's ok, wasn't an instant thrill though. Might take several listens to grow on me. Martin hinted on the live Q & A that a new album maybe down the road perhaps later this year and plans for a comprehensive ABC boxset are not out of the question.

Yeah, about on par with the xmas single of a few years back. 2nd tier ABC. The EDM seasoning was sorely at odds with Fry's strengths. Would not balk at an ABC album in less than 8-10 years for a change! As long as it maintained the standard of the last three. Will blog in depth on it today.

I also got this and... the dubstep breakdown? Most unexpected and quite dated! Still, for an '80s act', I guess it's repetitively modern! :?

I tried hard to listen to it a few times but didn't really care for it in the end so decided to erase it from my computer. Oh well, I'm gonna wait for the album whenever it comes out.

I'd call it "for fans only." You didn't miss much.

Would love to hear it. There are a couple of live versions of it on YouTube but I'd like to have heard this version. :(
