VCMG / Ssss [2012]

I've always been a fan of Depeche Mode and their side projects, so I was interested to hear former bandmates Marty Gore & Vince Clarke reunite in 2012 as VCMG for the electronic dance album Ssss.
Having both mastered the electronic side of Depeche Mode & Erasure with great effect, you'd think this would be a work of genius.  Sadly it's notl.  With legions of younger artists doing it better these two don't stand a chance.  They still seriously resort to outdated and boring blips & bleeps, while other electronic artists have figured out ways to fuse countless genres and sounds into their work.  
This is grandpa's dance record and was outdated 20 years ago.
