Format: Audio CD
When I first saw the price tag, I was put off a little, but on recieving this item I can say that it is worth every penny! The set consists of all 40 hits (all the singles), as stated on the cover plus loads of extras.
The package is in the form of a book, with the 4 discs kept in the front and back cover with 40 pages of quality photos and information about the band throughout their career.
The first cd is the 20 hits, plus the Who NeedsLove Like That Remix we heard on the original Erasure Pop, with improved sound quality. The second CD consists of the more recent suff from Erasure and there are plenty of hidden gems! The 3rd cd contains 15 great live tracks both album tracks and singles and the final disc the DVD contains loads of great rare Erasure footage, from the early days to more recently!
If you already own most of the tracks in this set I would still recomend this as the book is really worth it as is the live CD and dvd, all beautifully packaged.
Highly recommended for all erasure fans, if you're new to the band there is always the 2 disc editiion avalible which is at a lower price, but this is worth every penny!

Erasure must be one of a select few bands who can genuinely boast 40 hit singles, even in a career lasting 24 years. From vibrant and vacuous early numbers such as 'Oh L'amour' (later covered even more successfully by plastic pop puppets 'Dollar), to more mature and intense tracks like 'Drama', 'Chorus' and 'Stop'; you'll be amazed at how many of the songs on here that you recognise. Even in the mid-90s, after their bubble had burst, Erasure continued to produce quality pop songs; the likes of 'Breathe' and 'Here I go Immpossible Again' showing a maturity and deftness of touch that hasn't deserted Vince Clarke yet, even as the band's distinctive brand of synth-pop has gone in and out of fashion.
Without a duff track on it, this is great buy and an essential collection of inspired pop nuggets.

I totally agree with the first reviewer - the box set is fantastic, a real collectors item. Yes, it is expensive but it's nice to see Erasure/Mute providing something extra for the die-hard fans, who will have all the songs already. They've covered all bases by also releasing a standard double album at a bargain price for 'everyone else'. The DVD is worth the money alone for 'Because You're So Sweet' on Jools Holland, but there's loads more besides. The live CD spans all the major tours as well. Thank You Mute!

Nice hits collection of this group, including the released single versions of the songs (not all of the compilations include them).

An absolutely wonderful trip done memory lane. Erasure demonstrate that even 20 years on their music is still fresh & livley. A must buy for all those 80's music lovers.

When I was about 11 I adored Erasure, and recently I've begun to rediscover them once more. I had the first Pop! compilation (basically CD 1 of this collection) a few years back, but for some mad reason I gave it away. This comprehensive 2CD set is an excellent dip into a band that have been going strong for a quarter of a century.

So, CD1 is the stuff from the height of their fame when they regularly had Top 10 hits. It contains all the famous hits ("Sometimes", "A Little Respect", "Victim Of Love", "Stop") and some equally fine but less remembered gems ("Breath Of Life", "Ship Of Fools", the brilliantly experimental "Drama"). It's pretty much esential if you have any interest in synth-pop or even pop music in general.

CD2 is the secret goldmine. At first it can seem a bit samey, and forgettable, but only because the songs are less familiar. After a few listens you find yourself humming the tunes over and over. There's the lovely "Always", arguably the last big hit of their heyday. "Run To The Sun" is dancey and yet somehow moving. The under-rated "Freedom" with its airy guitar sound is good fun, and 'comeback' hit "Breathe" is beautifully eerie. "Storm In A Teacup" sounds moodily confessional, and in fact it could almost be off David Bowie's "...hours" album. Even "The Moon & The Sky", with its slightly comical recycled rhyming of 'high' and 'sky', is still an addictive foot-tapper.

Basically, if you like pop, get Total Pop. It'll leave a smile on your face.
