The brand new Erasure album 'The Violet Flame' was recorded in New York and London and produced by Richard X. The album follows 2013's critically acclaimed Snow Globe, and is the band's sixteenth studio album release.
Formed nearly 30 years ago, the award-winning songwriting duo of Vince Clarke and Andy Bell unleashed on the nation a succession of both influential and chart-topping pop anthems of the '80s, '90s through to today. Songs like 'A Little Respect', 'Sometimes', 'Victim Of Love', 'Ship Of Fools', 'Blue Savannah', 'Star', 'Chains Of Love', 'The Circus', 'Who Needs Love (Like That)', 'Love To Hate You', 'Drama!', 'Always' and 'Breathe', ensured a formidable presence on the singles charts complemented by five consecutive No 1 albums (including The Innocents, Wild! and Chorus) and the beginning of the worldwide Abba revival, 'Abba-esque'.
Top Customer Reviews
Every track, from the big-hitting opening of 'Dead of Night' to the last bars and final piano note of the quirky but great 'Stayed a Little Late Tonight' is well written and brilliantly produced. Andy Bell's vocals are the best they've been ('Snow Globe' excepted) for years. Vince Clarke's music is still heavily analogue-based, with lovely flourishes, and brought up to date under Richard X's influence.
Highlights for me are the possible follow-up single 'Sacred' - a superbly uplifting dancefloor filler, and the more traditional bouncy pop-sounding 'Under the Wave' with a fantastic vocal counter-melody.
A joy from start to finish

Silly, childish lyrics and casio-sounding beeps boops, nothing else. ? Andy's voice is sometimes ear-disturbingly loud and insincire. Sleeve design is also foolish. Read morePublished 3 months ago by A guy loving talented guys
