Editorial Reviews

Snow Globe is a combination of original Erasure songs and Christmas cover songs. Unlike the bells and whistles, glitter and tinsel sets that crowd the market come Christmas-time, Snow Globe is possessed of something more in the wistfully, strangely subdued celebratory mould of recent seasonal albums by Tracey Thorn and Kate Bush.

I've been an avid fan of Erasure since their groundbreaking Wonderland -- and not since 1989's Erasures EP, Crackers International, which featured the moving "She Won't be Home" and the ubiquitous "God Rest e Merry Gentlemen," has the band put forth such a moving holiday effort. From the new and the old to the offbeat and the magically dark, team Erasure blends shadow and beauty into this moving new music spectacle. Specifically, the album's first single, "Gaudete," a shadowy reminder of the holiday, combines history and Vince's incomparable grasp of musical technology into a solid piece of breathtaking audio mastery. In fact, check out the video on YouTUbe -- it was put together from the same stop-motion people who brought you Tim Burton's "Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas" and "Coraline." Wonderful stuff. Other tracks worth paying particular attention to: "Bells of Love," "Loving Man," and "Silent Night." Well done, Vince and Andy, it was worth the wait.

I'm usually not a fan of Christmas releases from my favorite bands, but 'Snow Globe' doesn't disappoint. It's not a typical Christmas CD. As Andy Bell once said of Vince Clarke: "Everything he touches turns to gold". Vincent Clarke truly is a musical genius. 'Snow Globe' is a mix of timeless Christmas songs that Andy sings flawlessly, some pop-dance mixes, and a couple original songs that have a little bit of a dark side. If you're an Erasure fan, or maybe just looking for something different this holiday season, then I recommend adding "Snow Globe" to your music collection.

What most people realize is that they never have lol but this is definitely an album for anyone who has let their following of Erasure dwindle. It has some great holiday classics (Silent Night will never be the same) as well as some amazing originals (Bells of Love and Loving Man being the showstoppers that are the same Erasure from 20 years ago. Amazing album ... can't wait for the next full-length of originals which is rumored to be coming out either 2014 or 2015 at the latest. Go on with your bad selves, boys, and don't ever leave us out of it!

I purchased this CD before the holidays and enjoyed listening to it during the season. It sounds very much like 80s pop, which is a big plus in my book. It's like a new wave Christmas album, in some ways. My favorites are "Make it Wonderful", "Loving Man", and "Gaudete".

Every song on this holiday CD is top notch. Andy Bell and Vince Clarke are perfection. Always. A must-have for any Erasure fan.

This is a selection of Christmas (not "holiday" -- there is a definite Christian spin to the music) tunes from Erasure, so if you've ever heard their music, you'll know what to expect: Lots of synth electronica, strong not-quite-countertenor vocals, and very upbeat.

I really enjoyed obscure versions of selections like "Gaudete," and originals like "Loving Man" (by far my favorite tracks on the album), are very well done -- if you're not tapping your foot through it kindly turn in your gun and your Santa hat, detective, 'cause you're outta here!

Some of the more traditional Christmas fare (like "Silent Night," "Midnight Clear," and "Silver Bells" just fall short for me for some reason. They're not deal-breakers by any means, but they just aren't up to par with the rest of the album. They honestly sound campy, like they're taking pot shots at inane holiday music... At least that's what I tell myself to get through these pretty terrible renditions. Just for reference, I'm not offended by that -- I am an atheist -- I just don't find them particularly good covers of holiday music.

Aside from that complaint, the album as a whole is great fun and is now in my regular holiday rotation.

Wow!! After the very mediocre Tomorrow's World, Erasure really returned to form with this AMAZING collection of songs. The spin on traditional Christmas classics are charming and fun, but the new songs are what truly blew me away! Erasure dug back into their classic sound to produce timeless new music that exemplified the Erasure sound and added new favorites to an already amazing back catalog of songs! This CD is not to be missed. If you're a fan of Erasure, you'll love this - if you're not a fan, it's a wonderful way to introduce yourself to their music.
