3.0 out of 5 stars Not one of their best efforts., 24 July 2013
This review is from: Tomorrow's World (Audio CD)
I own all the Erasure albums and I can only say that this is the best album since its predecessor! To be fair, it does beat "Love Boat" (let down by awful production) and possible even "Nightbird" (too unexciting for me). It starts off promisingly enough and "Fill us with Fire" is a particular highlight: infectious and catchy. Musically it is a bit hit-and-miss, but it does show a continuation from "Light at the End of the World" (my favourite Erasure album from the last decade) of a more upbeat and dance sound. However, it is the vocals that really let this album down. Whilst an Erasure album is instantly recognisable as such, each one is also very different. On this particular album, the vocals sound very modulated, which I do not like at all. Although some of the tunes are good, this album lacks the sheer beauty of the likes of "Wild" and "I say, I say, I say". On the other hand, the lyrics are generally very good, far better than on "Lovebird"; I particularly like "Then I Go Twisting". The bonus CD is definitely worth getting for the bonus song: "Give Me Life", and I did also like some of the remixes.
