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

I've heard the new album, and I am truly in love with it. Although I'd not heard of several of the songs before, the Erasure touch has certainly turned them into Erasure classics. The first single, Solsbury Hill, should be a triumpant return to the main stream. The only complaint I have is the CD's length. So many of the older songs were short and, even at 12 tracks, the CD only uses about 40 minutes worth of time. This release could've easily seen 8 more tracks. The good news is that they're already at work on the next album of new Erasure material. Long live Erasure! And may Other People's Songs be a huge success!

Having heard the album I have to say its not half bad..........
It takes a minute to get your head around the paticular style and feel Erasure bring to the songs as most are classics that we have come to recognise in their own right. Many bands can't get away with completly chaning classic tunes but Erasure do it very well.
Salsbury Hill will do very well in its own right and is one of the best tracks on the album, although Come Up and See Me (Make Me Smile) is typical Erasure pop and sounds great.
The only negatives for this album is the length, Its only around 40 minutes long as most classic old tracks are around 3 minutes long. Having said that you can always do to much so at least this album leaves you looking for more as opposed to waiting for the end.
In short, a poppy, happy, catchy album...Typical Erasure.

Being an Erasure fan is usually a thing people keep secret. A lot of people like to think of them as an unfashionable throwback to the 80's and are surprised to hear that they are still going strong. But there are more "closet" fans out there than would care to admit and I think this is the album to bring them out of the woodwork.
Erasure in my opinion define perfectly crafted pop. They know what makes people tap their feet, know what chorus will stay in people's heads and know how to put people in touch with their camp, glitter and tinsel wearing side.
"Other People's Songs" brings this to a head by combining Andy Bell's amazing vocal dexterity, Vince Clark's collection of electronic noises and an amazingly well chosen, if a little diverse, collection of pop classics.
The heavily electronic nature of the album may not to be to everyone's taste, but I suspect those people are perhaps a little serious minded and not open to the fun of these interpretations.
At the moment, my favourite has got to be Cockney Rebel's "Come up and see me (make me smile)". Andy's vocal style on the track is absolutely filthy - full of suggestion and smut!

Once upon a time, Andy Bell decided he wanted to do a cover album on his own. Now, several years later, Erasure releases one of their funnest albums ever.
For me, personally, this was a hoarde of awsome songs that just blew me away. I'm too young to have heard many of the originals and in my opinion, I think Erasure at least matches, if not surpasses the ones I have heard.
Just a few minutes into the first song and you know that there's something different about this album. Wether you've heard the songs or not, there is an aire of nostalgia in the compositions. For me, this just makes the songs all the more enjoyable. They sound familiar but sound genuinely Erasure.
The album itself seems to be divided into two main parts. The first half of the album, "Solsbury Hill" through "Walking in the Rain", has that undeniably dancy, upbeat sound that you just can't help but sing along to. The second half, "True Love Ways" through "Goodnight", have a slowy more pensive sound. And the song that should have been labeled "bonus Track", "Video Killed the Radio Star" concludes the album. Many disreguard this song as one of Erasure's worst, but I personally love this song and the robotic voice is just a little quirk that I can't get enough of.
In the end, this Album is a five-star, but it loses a point for being much too short.

Having dabbled in various different styles, Erasure have reverted back to the more classic Erasure sound (ie. the Chorus days), even though this is a covers album. I'm too young to remember all the original versions of the tracks, but I love the album, from the slightly more beaty to slower, slushier songs.
Video Killed The Radio Star is probably the only disapointing track on the album; as Andy doesn't sing it (well, he does the backing vocals), and it is sung by a robotic computer voice, which is odd as it could have been a realy good track.
However, Other People's Songs is a fantastic album, and I recommend it to Erasure fans who prefer the pre Loveboat Erasure music!!

This album is a must for all erasure fans. I have been a fan since they released the song stop. What an album to make a come back, the song solsbury hill is a gem and the cover version of make me smile [come up and see me] is just the brink of andy bells talents. He also sings a better version of youve lost that lovin feelin on the album, its pure class! If you are a erasure fan buy this now!!!

This album is worth getting just for Goodnight. Its so poignant and Andys voice sounds great. Let alone the fantastic versions of Solsbury Hill and Make Me Smile (come up and see me)

I can see why people cringe at this album. A covers album does seem a rather naff idea. But like all previous albums there are some real gems on here as well.

And theres only so original Vince could be when restricted by other peoples arrangements.

If you're a fan its certainly worth getting.
