It's "Part Deux" of "Versus Month", where we take a look at albums released at about the same time by former band members and see which one is better. This time we're going to 1982 and we're asking that musical question, "what happens when a band's principal songwriter leaves because his first band was getting too popular only to have his second band become even more popular?" when we delve into Yazoo's debut album "Upstairs at Eric's" and Depeche Mode's sophomore album "A Broken Frame".
