5.0 out of 5 stars The campest covers! Lot's of fun!, 31 Jan 2003
This review is from: Other People's Songs (Audio CD)
Being an Erasure fan is usually a thing people keep secret. A lot of people like to think of them as an unfashionable throwback to the 80's and are surprised to hear that they are still going strong. But there are more "closet" fans out there than would care to admit and I think this is the album to bring them out of the woodwork.
Erasure in my opinion define perfectly crafted pop. They know what makes people tap their feet, know what chorus will stay in people's heads and know how to put people in touch with their camp, glitter and tinsel wearing side.
"Other People's Songs" brings this to a head by combining Andy Bell's amazing vocal dexterity, Vince Clark's collection of electronic noises and an amazingly well chosen, if a little diverse, collection of pop classics.
The heavily electronic nature of the album may not to be to everyone's taste, but I suspect those people are perhaps a little serious minded and not open to the fun of these interpretations.
At the moment, my favourite has got to be Cockney Rebel's "Come up and see me (make me smile)". Andy's vocal style on the track is absolutely filthy - full of suggestion and smut!
