the sound and production have returned to the days of the glory days of "the innocents" and "circus"
the opener "be with you" is a great track and would make a great second single as its got a great chorus.
"fill us with fire" is another pop dance track that harks back to the glory days
"what will i say when you're gone" is absolutely brilliant - a bitter sweet lovesong with all you could ask for - great lyrics and vocals!!!
"youve got to save me right now" is not my favourite track...its a bit of a bluesy electro plodder.
"a whole lotta love run riot" has more of a club feel and again it would be a great single choice, with the right remixes it could fill a dancefloor today
"when i start to break down" is the first single and it does not rock my boat - the vocals sound a bit strained, the musics plods along but goes nowhere...i have to admit it may be my least favourite track on the album
"i lose myself" is another stunner that could have been a huge hit - it has hints not only of erasure but also yazoo (not a bad thing) great lyrics and another stunner!
"then i go twisting" has a heavy dance beat....and is another instant track...what do you do when it all breaks down you lose yourself on the dancefloor (i dont do the twist by the way)...brillance!
"just when i thought it was ending" is bitter sweet ballad and is big and epic...Read more ›
It's always worrying when someone tells you that a classic band that you truly enjoy decided to update their own sound. You may think "Oh my! They took off the word 'integrity' of their dictionary!". But this really isn't the case of this new work by Clarke and Bell, 'cos their music continues as catchy and enjoyable as it ever was, despite the more "modern" sound. No one can blame them for trying to conquer new listeners by working with a trendy producer, specially when you notice that Vince still knows to create great melodies and to thrill and amaze with his inventive synth sounds while Andy's skills as a vocalist and lyricist remain intact.
Some people have accused Andy of being repetitive with his lyrics, which really talk about love 90 percent of the time, but the fact is that 90 percent of the great pop songs of all time are about love. 'Love' has always been the great theme of pop songs and I personally don't get bothered by an album full of songs that talks about the joys and sorrows of being in love with someone when these ones are good ones, like the songs of this album. Well, there are at least four songs here that approach other subjects indeed.
The 2 tracks that I like the most are the thrilling and already underrated "When I Start To (Break It All Down)", the song rightly chosen to be the lead single, and "I Lose Myself", which was defined by Andy as a kind of New Order-esque song. Vince's synths are particularly great here, I think. Its lyrics are quite frank and talks about letting yourself being or not being a wild boy when your life is under constant pressure. "Be With You" has a very erasurish atmosphere and it's easily likeable. Sweet lyrics attached to galloping beats.Read more ›
I started off being hugely impressed. The first two tracks on the album are elegantly pop-py with a real twist added by Frankmusic's heady and heavy production; they are clearly excellent tracks worthy of being released as singles.
From here on in we begin to lose focus though 'What Will I Say When You're Gone' offers a glimpse of Vince's antique synth pop beginning to come to the fore (after the heavy production of the first 2 tracks) but then we get 'You've Got To Save Me Right Now' which, for me, is a truly awful track followed up by a weak and strangely remix-y and 90's techno 'A Whole Lotta Love Run Riot'.
'When I Start To (Break It All Down)' was the first single from the album and is followed up by the Situation-esque 'I Lose Myself'. Remember, however good Situation was, it was the B-Side to the Yazoo single 'Only You' (remixed and released in it's own right in 1990). 'Then I Go Twisting' again appears to be a remix-y 90's techno track and is incredibly weak. 'Just When I Thought It Was Ending' doesn't fit with what's gone before.
And this is the problem. What we get here are some brilliantly developed songs with excellent production that would fit snuggly into any of the last 25 years of Erasure and fit perfectly into today's music market. But we also get some over-produced pap that Frankmusic has probably felt has had to be completely re-invented to make it sound OK.
The remixes and demos on the 2nd CD are interesting. The 10th new song is 'Give Me Life' and isn't worthy of being a B-Side track (hence why it's dumped onto this 2nd CD).Read more ›
