Erasure - Snow Globe album trailer

Biography

Following the disbandment of the short-lived synth pop group Yazoo, former Depeche Mode member Vince Clarke formed Erasure in 1985 with singer Andy Bell. Like Yaz and Depeche Mode, Erasure were a synth-based group, but they had stronger dance inclinations, as well as a sharper, more accessible sense of pop songcraft, than either of Clarke's previous bands. Furthermore, Erasure had the ... Read more in Amazon's Erasure Store

Customer Reviews

I dread the day they stop making new music.
J. P. Thompson
It's always nice to have new music from Erasure, and I will probably be a fan for life.
george aber jr
It might sound like I don't like this album, but I actually think it's decent.

let's cut to the chase - i haven't enjoyed an erasure album on first listen this much since 'i say i say i say.' it's a great album, not just a great erasure album. let's discuss!

'when i start to (break it all down)' is a curious choice as the first single as it's not really indicative of the rest of the album. it's a fine song, but lacks the propulsive energy found in the rest of the album. and that energy is exactly what makes 'tomorrow's world' really shine. it's infused with new-found vitality, rejuvenation, and sounds oddly relevant. bringing frankmusik in to produce was a nice stroke. he's coaxed out vince's yazoo days, musically speaking, of course, in embracing minor chords more than on past albums. (and andy's vocals, as always, are pristine - though there isn't too much here at the lower end of his register). tracks like 'i lose myself,' (it's easy to imagine alison moyet singing this one) 'be with us,' 'a whole lotta love run riot' and 'then i go twisting' are all dance floor stompers and primed for endless remixes (this is a good thing!). and aside from misguided auto-tune vocals on 'a whole lotta love run riot,' there's not really a misstep on the entire album. it feels as complete and whole as any erasure ever has. on a personal note, my favorite track is 'what will i say when you are gone.' beautiful.

it won't convert the naysayers, but for those of us who've been with vince andy the last twenty years, it's a terrific album. there's nothing immediately memorable and classic as, say, 'oh l'amour,' 'chains of love,' 'a little respect,' or 'always,' but as a whole it trumps, at least in my opinion, the last four or five albums and is right up there with 'the innocents,' 'i say' and 'the circus.'

hats off to you, gentlemen. many have copied, but the original keeps the crown.

Format: Audio CD
For those of us who have stuck with them through the years, Erasure has been a source of great musical pleasure and comfort. The synthetic sounds of Vince Clarke and the stratospheric vocals of Andy Bell have given us an entire musical world that is so wonderful to inhabit and enjoy, that some of us have stayed long after the chart hits ended, eager to see where this duo will take us next on their continuing musical journey.

This time, it's a slight detour (or a new phase?) into contemporary dance music, largely created by hotshot producer Frankmusik. He has taken the familiar synthetic bleeps of Clarke and added a new shimmer, making the record sound like much of today's other dance-pop music (including Andy's solo albums). Additionally, Andy's vocals are often processed with AutoTune, although no doubt more for effect than necessity. Vince's synths do chime in, but this time they are encased in Frankmusik's glistening wall of production.

This is no doubt a calculated move to keep Erasure sounding contemporary, and while it basically works as an entertaining album, one does miss the more traditional Erasure sound. The songs are strong overall, with the trailer single "When I Start to (Break it All Down") being the outstanding track.

It is good to see Erasure trying to stay fresh and current, rather than coast on their past, although one hopes they will not completely move away from their classic sound. In any case, new music from these pioneers of synthpop is always welcome.

With the exception of 2005's Nightbird, it has largely been a lost decade for erasure fans. Unfortunately, this record does not mark a return to form, nor is it likely to win the duo many new converts. Instead, this record falls short in nearly every way. Songs pulse in and out without really taking off and end abruptly, as though the machines were simply switched off. It's hard not to blame the producer, Frankmusik, for obscuring Vince Clarke's usually shimmery synths and minimal production under the weight of every disco trick in his book. I disagree with the reviewers who say that Bell's vocals are exceptional here. The compression and processing strips him of his usual drama and pathos. Not that the quality of songs here deserve anything more. I'll continue to enjoy the duo's back catalog, but this record marks the moment I step off the erasure bus.

Note: This is not a dissection of individual tracks on TW; it's an overview of the album as a whole, and a comparison to their previous body of work.

I've been a fan of Erasure since the late 80s. I own every album (except Union Street), the boxsets, and all their newer singles. While I'd love to say I love TW, I can't...at least not in the way I love the majority of their previous work. In my ranking of their 14 full-length releases, TW is closer to the bottom than the top. Here's the list of their releases from my most to least favorite: Cowboy, Chorus, IS x3, Nightbird, The Innocents, The Circus, Wild!, Wonderland, Erasure, Light at the End of the World, Tomorrow's World, Other People's Songs, Loveboat, Union Street.

I give TW 3/5 stars, partly because it *is* Erasure and I'm thrilled that they're still making music after 26 years, and partly b/c most of the tracks are catchy, dancey, and good, even if not great. I can understand the band's choice to "modernize" their music with the production assistance of Frankmusik (and I think he does a good job with that task), but I don't listen to Erasure to hear slick production, processed vocals, and songs that sounds like much of what's out there today in the way of revitalized 80s-sounding synth-based club-ready music (although I do like that music, too). I listen to Erasure to hear their trademark, blippy, bleepy effects, and solid, melodic, and insanely catchy and unique synth arrangements. I feel that, with a few exceptions, most of those elements that I have enjoyed so much on past albums have been mainly lost on TW.

I have been known to put in one of their older CDs and listen to (lesser known) tracks repeatedly (e.g.
