Not HI-NRG so dont't expect it

This album has Vince and Andy in a serious and reflective mood regarding world's affairs. Some fans don't seem to get it and want Erasure to write the same songs with the same sounds over and over again. I love Erasure and have followed the band for years as they do not repeat themselves.

Fans who want another The Circus, Wild! or other previous albums can't be interested in a band who at 17 albums in ARE allowed to express themselves and write songs that express their concerns about the current state of affairs.

Personally for me i love their uptempo songs but i also love the slower more reflective and at times darker Erasurs songs.

If you want Wild! then play Wild! If you want to challenge yourself with something new then listen to World Be Gone.

Love this album to the sky

The boys have done it again...even after all these years they are making fantastic music. Love you to the sky is fresh and optimistic. I can't help but smile while listening to it. I love hearing Vince's synths with Andy's magical voice...it is a perfect combo. Can't wait to hear the rest of the album.

Now on album release day - I was scared as I heard the album was slooow and I love upbeat Erasure. Now having listened several times, I was wrong to be concerned. I think this album could end up being a favourite. Strong Vince chords and melodic vocals from Mr Bell. A few songs have given me that heart fluttery feeling. Love it.

Have a word!

Someone at Mute needs to have a serious word.
I appreciate that writing hit songs isn't easy, but the utter drivel of Love You To The Sky should never have made it past the stage of 'Deluxe version extra track' let alone a lead single off the album!!
To say they are simply going through the motions would be an understatement. Where's the edge to their music these days? Naff lyrics and hardly any melody whatsoever.
Yes, this is a bit of a rant, but Erasure were the mutts nuts for a significant period of time. They were the sound of my train journeys home after school, my walk to the youth club each week, the local disco on a Thursday bopping to the likes of It Doesn't Have To Be....
I'm a little heartbroken if I'm honest. I just don't know why an institution, like they are, would be prepared to churn out such dross. Perhaps the label are to blame, or perhaps a tour is on the horizon!
Either way, the new single is cringeworthy and if someone 'had a word' perhaps they could a lot better.
Sorry lads. Some tough love.
