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.

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.

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!

I think this is a good album,not great,but lets face it anything is better than "Union Street" (sorry but I'm not into country style acoustic albums). That being said there is a lot to keep the many devoted Erasure fans out there happy for another year or two. If you're reading this you've either already bought it or have added it to your cart/wishlist. There is also a limited edition with deluxe packaging and two bonus tracks available which is the edition I own. Casual fans will not miss the extra tracks,but I had to have them. The design of the special edition case is also quite pleasing to the eye. Now onto the album.

Treats for me include "Darlene","How My Eyes Adore You" and the sublime "Fly Away". I had already heard "I Could Fall In Love With You" before the album came out and thought it was a good sign.There is more to this album than the obvious singles. Is it "Just my imagination rolling over the past...." or are Vince & Andy giving Blondie an homage on "Sunday Girl"? It does have a very similar sound to the aforementioned's track of the same name...I know they are big fans of Deborah! The album is quite a grower and gets better with every listen (I've had about ten plays as of writing this) but could it be possible that the hardcore fans such as the ones dancing in the aisles on "The Road To Nashville" concert dvd want more than the familiar? Lighten up! There are only so many sounds out there and Vince is a Techno pioneer,why should an Erasure album not have 90's sounds on it (see some of the previous reviews)? After all they were a big part of the 90's in my world. I for one,am happy with the return of uptempo and upbeat melodies after the moody and melancholic "Nightbird". The birth of Vince's baby has clearly had an effect on his melodies.

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.
