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

5.0 out of 5 stars Possibly the best album of the 1980's 20 Feb 2002
Format:Audio CD
After their smash 1988 album, 'The Innocents', it was widely believed that Erasure had reached pop perfection and could go no further. Not so. In 'Wild!', the unlikely duo had created a masterpiece, bettering its award-winning predecessor and becoming possibly the most complete album of the decade. 'Wild!' opens with a poigniant instrumental, 'Piano Song', which was refreshingly devoid of synthesizers. It then moved swiftly on the the chart smash 'Blue Savannah', which is still my favourite song to this day. The album then conitunues brilliantly, moving seamlessly from song to song. Highlights include the triumphant 'Drama!', the synth-happy singalong 'Brother and Sister' and the magnificent full version of 'Piano Song'. The minus points? I'm still looking...
What makes this album so great is the fact that the songs merge beautifully despite their diverse nature. The only other albums i know to have done this are 'Automatic for the People' by REM and Van Morrison's 'Astral Weeks', and they are both classic albums in their own right. Perhaps 'Wild!' will one day be seen in the same light. Deservedly so, I think.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Riveting Musical Journey 13 Aug 2009
Format:Audio CD
`Erasure's' fourth album may have lacked the message of `The Circus' or the heart aching emptiness of `The Innocents.' But it was also musically diverse and upbeat without feeling as if it had been `Thrown Together.' And in the end, even most of the darker tracks possess a powerful and moving rhythm.

The instrumental version of "The Piano Song" is still one of the best overtures that I've ever heard in my life, flowing rhythmically into "Blue Savannah" with only a brief, silent pause.

The roll of thunder at the end of that track is the clarion call for "Drama." The album then changes pace with the sighful lament of "How Many Times." And then it changes pace once again with the joyful Latin rhythms of "Star" and "La Gloria."

"You Surround Me" is then a return to the style and the soul of the second track before the hard hitting impact of "Brother and Sister." (One of my favourite tracks on this album, but obviously far too dark and meaningful to ever be released as a single.) And whilst "2000 Miles" might have been far more musically upbeat, I'm happy to say that it also possessed a vindictive and venomous edge.

After that, "Crown of Thorns" is a wonderfully deep and powerful stepping stone. And then, the whole experience is beautifully rounded off with the full version of "The Piano Song."

As the title states then, this album is a riveting musical journey, and I would recommend it to almost anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the many Erasure masterpieces 31 May 2007
Format:Audio CD
have been listening to my Erasure back catalog a bit since buying their new Album, Light at the end of the world (which is one of their best albums). When i listened to Wild again this morning the car on the way to work, I realised I'd forgotten just how good this album is. I was in 2nd or 3rd year of High School when I saved up all my pocket money and bought this album and I listened to is constantly until it was later replaced by Chorus (again, another top album). School was a happy time for me and listening to this album just took me straight back to being 12 or 13 again.

The album has such a mix of moods and tempos (which seems to be a hit or a miss with other people from looking at the other reviews). Blue Savannah was the song that really triggered my love for all things Erasure. It was after hearing Blue Savannah on the radio (back in the good old days when Erasure got plenty of airplay!!!!!!!) that I bought this album.

You surround me has to be one of my all time Favourites and listening to Star again reminded me of my high school sweetheart as it was one of her favourites.

It doesn't matter how many reviews you read, every individual has their individual opinion. I gave this album 5 out of 5, perhaps I'm biased cos I'm such a big fan, but the only way to find out is to listen to the album and form your own opinion. The general rule is that if it says Erasure on the album cover, then "it does what it says on the tin". You'd expect (and in all cases find) pure pop magic at it's very best.

4.0 out of 5 stars Erasure's least consistent album? 3 May 2007
Format:Audio CD
I echo the previous reviewer's sentiments about fillers on Wild!: '2000 Miles','Crown of Thorns' & the infamous 'La Gloria' aren't likely to feature on many Erasure fans' favourite lists. The rest of the album is top quality: 'Drama!' still sounds superb (most popular track on their 2005 tour!), 'Blue Savannah' & 'You Surround Me' will always be classics and 'Piano Song' is one of their saddest yet most beautiful songs. The excellence of these songs merely highlights how weak the fillers are though. 'Chorus' was more consistent, but the high points on 'Wild!' make it a worthy listen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Erasure's best and most under-rated album. 4 Nov 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
"Wild!" got a mixed reception at the time of its release. It presented a much harder, richer face than the preceding "Innocents". Personally, however, I regard it as a much more rewarding affair. The arrangements are more imaginative, and Andy Bell turned in some of his finest vocal performances.
Opening with the short "Piano Song (instrmental)" most of "Wild!" simple bursts with energy in a way that they never did before (and haven't really done since). And there is plenty of variety between these tracks. >The surging "You Surround Me" is one of their stongest songs and deserved to be a much bigger hit at the time.
The album closes with the tender "Piano Song". Subdued and understated it makes for a damn near perfect, if unexpected, end to the album. This is the only Erasure album that I keep returning to. It has one of their finest covers too.
