Customer Review

on 3 October 2011
erasure have struggled in the charts in later years....more down to changing musical tastes and lack of airplay. this album may not change that but for the people who listen...it is a another classic album by a great band!!

the sound and production have returned to the days of the glory days of "the innocents" and "circus"

the opener "be with you" is a great track and would make a great second single as its got a great chorus.

"fill us with fire" is another pop dance track that harks back to the glory days

"what will i say when you're gone" is absolutely brilliant - a bitter sweet lovesong with all you could ask for - great lyrics and vocals!!!

"youve got to save me right now" is not my favourite track...its a bit of a bluesy electro plodder.

"a whole lotta love run riot" has more of a club feel and again it would be a great single choice, with the right remixes it could fill a dancefloor today

"when i start to break down" is the first single and it does not rock my boat - the vocals sound a bit strained, the musics plods along but goes nowhere...i have to admit it may be my least favourite track on the album

"i lose myself" is another stunner that could have been a huge hit - it has hints not only of erasure but also yazoo (not a bad thing) great lyrics and another stunner!

"then i go twisting" has a heavy dance beat....and is another instant track...what do you do when it all breaks down you lose yourself on the dancefloor (i dont do the twist by the way)...brillance!

"just when i thought it was ending" is bitter sweet ballad and is big and epic...

with all the hallmarks of classic erasure it should be a huge hit, but the stunning albums of recent years have not done well commercially..all fans will love it and i hope they will gain some new ones!

i only stumbled across this by accident, the single flopped - not a surprise as i think it is possibly the weakest song on the album and lack of marketing means many will not know this has even been released!

i love the boys!!!!
