5.0 out of 5 stars And they just keep getting better, 22 May 2007
This review is from: Light At The End Of The World (Audio CD)
Wow, what a follow up to Nightbird. Nightbird was absolutely brilliant (see my review) but this album possibly just seems that bit better.

Would definately agree with Stephen Moss's view that their song writing and music has improved over the past few years. Hope it continues to do so for the next 20 years!!

Sunday Girl is great album opener. something which is common with most Erasure albums, they all seem to follow a particular pattern. They start with a great opener and the mood/tempo rises and falls, then rises again before a sombre/mellow but somewhat uplifting final track. (saying that, the limited edition with 12 tracks has a more uptempo finish).

Lyrically, track 5 (Fly Away) is my fave from this album, but the whole album is pure brilliance!!!!

Something else all Erasure albums have in common is that it is so easy to listen to all their albums through headphones and lose yourself within the layers of synth magic and unmatched vocals.

I've said this before but it is a shame that Erasure do not reach higher chart positions. it could be radio has a part to play in this. Almost all radio stations these days insist on playing the repetitive crap that have no imagination. Andy Bell has the best vocals ever and Vince is just a pure genius! Surely a proven group like Erasure who have been around for over 20 years now should be gracing the airwaves over the likes of one hit wonders from TV reality show!!! (something I feel quite strongly about) It's about time Erasure were give a lifetime acheivement award on the likes of the Brits or something. Whilst I don't doubt they can sing, Shane Ward and Co can only dream of having true, honest talent like Andy and Vince.

Can't wait to see them live again in September this year!!!

Well done guys, long may you continue to bless us with such pop brilliance!!!
