Erasure "Tomorrow's World"

Biography

Following the disbandment of the short-lived synth pop group Yazoo, former Depeche Mode member Vince Clarke formed Erasure in 1985 with singer Andy Bell. Like Yaz and Depeche Mode, Erasure were a synth-based group, but they had stronger dance inclinations, as well as a sharper, more accessible sense of pop songcraft, than either of Clarke's previous bands. Furthermore, Erasure had the ... Read more in Amazon's Erasure Store

Product Description

Product Description

The album was written and recorded at a private home in Maine, USA. Vince Clarke and Andy Bell alongside producer Gareth Jones converted the house into a recording studio for a month, where they cut ten new electronic songs in the classic Erasure style.

From the Artist

VINCE: This is one of the few songs that existed in part before the Maine hotel room writing sessions. Before we started this album, I was really keen for it not to be mid-tempo - I'm having a mid-tempo crisis! Our albums seem to have got slower and slower, so I started searching for classic funk or disco basslines, put some ideas together with chord changes and basslines underneath, and emailed them to Andy for him to sing over the top. The song, like this album, is quite 'up' and uptempo because we're both in good spaces right now.

4.0 out of 5 stars Light at the end of the tunnel? Hopefully. 17 Jun 2007
Format:Audio CD
That is what I believe the album should have been called. Erasure have been ploughing away now for over twenty years with their distinctive electronic sound. Back in 1990 this album would have hit number one. In 2007 it hit 29 and blew out of the charts. This was a bit of a indication to how well new single Sunday Girl would do and low and behold it proved to be the case. The second single Sunday Girl from the new album hit 33 and will blow out as quick as it arrived. The radio version though didn't do the song justice. A shame really as this album is very good, not excellent, but very good. From opening track Sunday Girl through to track 6 is bubbling, poppy, catchy synth brilliance which was reminiscent of that late 80's early 90's Erasure dance music that had the midas touch. Apart from track seven, How My Eyes Adore You, which doesn't have any affect on me whatsover, we are treated to a comfortable, laid back Erasure with a well polished and mature sound. The question remains whether they are commercially successful again but I really don't they Vince and Andy care that much nowadays. After all they've gone and bought the t-shirt several times already. Sell out tours in the UK and US suggest they do and I admire them in the fact that they keep going, producing what they want to produce rather than what would be marketable. Just how many bands today will be around doing that like Erasure have been doing for 22 years. This is a good album, buy it, don't burn it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Vince & Andy know what music's all about! 31 May 2007
Format:Audio CD
When an album sends shivers up your spine and makes you want to listen to it all over again it must be good! "Sunday Girl" is a superb catchy opener with the chorus reminding me of Abba's "Under Attack". "I Could Fall In Love With You" was a great single and should have recieved radio airplay earlier than it got. Vince & Andy have put together another strong album where really any of it's tracks could make potential singles, for example.. "Storm In A Teacup" "Fly Away" and "Glass Angel"

If your a fan I'm assuming you've already heard it by now, if not don't miss out on an album by one of the finest pop duo's to come out of the 80's and still going strong!

5.0 out of 5 stars DOESNT THAT SOUND A BIT LIKE....? 30 May 2007
By Mr. Nathan Armstrong VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Following the absolute pearl of an album that was "nightbird" was gonna be hard...but this is just as good! it does have the sound and feel of a lot of the early erasure albums...in fact as you listen to each track you hear little bits that remind you of other great tracks and you end up thinking doesnt that sound a bit like... but then its gone and you never quite remember what track it was. its a wonderful listening experience with the exception of "sunday girl" the next single which i think sounds like a left over from andys solo album and "sucker for love" which is a bit too frantic...however both tracks are still good!

the first single "i could fall in love with you" has a similar feel to the "nighbird" album and should have done a lot better but it didnt get much airplay..which is a shame!

standout tracks for me are "storm in a teacup" "fly away""darlene" and the beautiful bittersweet "when a lover leaves you" which is classic lost love done as only erasure do...(p.s. when it starts i thought it was "no limits" by 2 unlimited but it didnt last long!

this album will be a joy to all who have followed erasure for the last twenty years and to the ones who they lost along the way...its a big welcome back!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars really good 27 Oct 2011
Format:Audio CD
This album is one of the best I've heard. I'm not a "fan" of erasure but I do like a lot of what they have done.
I'm stuck on the first 6 songs of the album which tell a definite modus operandi of Vince and Andy's life at the moment of recording.
I haven't really listened to the other songs because I keep replayiing the first 6 which are bouncy and emotive and have a lovely quality to them.
Musically; it's just so sweet and sour and jaunty but it isn't disposable pop by any means. These synth sounds are ushered into pathos and loneliness and frustration of being a gay man looking for that emotional attachment and connection with another. You can sense Andy's frustration and joy and his definite hunger for more of what life and love have to offer.
Vince and Andy are the most authentic electronic duo. They have "blue grassed" their electronic music and spunky vocals into their lives in a meaningful and touching honesty of experience of being human.
Erasure have that touch of life streaming into their albums and it is never remote and distant. You can take this album and if you don't like it - well, at least it's honest and from the heart. And it shows.
Artists comfortable with who they are and daring to express life and love as it is does indeed make a great album and this is one. So far.

5.0 out of 5 stars Illuminating 19 May 2009
Format:Audio CD
Released during Erasure's period away from the charts, this is a gem of an album, with several standout tracks - 'Sunday Girl', 'I Could Fall in Love With You', and 'Storm in a Teacup' being my three favourites. Andy's bittersweet lyrics and Vince's hypnotic beats are all present and correct; if this had been made a decade earlier it would surely have gone platinum.

4.0 out of 5 stars Light to end all worlds 4 Oct 2007
Format:Audio CD
Another classic. Whilst many reviewers bemoan the band's lack of airplay, I bask in the knowledge that I enjoy access to some of the world's best music with a select few!
Light... is an absorbing album that has demanded repeated play since it's release. Beyond the obvious singles at the beginning, this album reflects many moods and emotions as the poetry of Andy's pen is taken to zeniths through many sublime synth' layers.
Today my ultimate track is "When a lover leaves you", but this is sure to change as I explore this album further.
I've just bought Storm Chaser, a definate must for anyone who's had Light... on repeat in their CD player for 4 months! I look forward to dancing the night away to the fabulous remixes next time I'm clubbing, or maybe not (not much demand for Erasure in Bristol, perhaps I should dance in Brighton!)
