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

4.0 out of 5 stars The One That Started it All... October 5, 2002
Format:Audio CD
This is the debut album from a British duo called Erasure. Synth guru Vince Clarke, having just left Yaz and Depeche Mode, teamed up with vocalist Andy Bell for what would be a long and enduring partnership. A friend of mine heard for the first time a few samples of Erasure's work, which he flippantly described as "Eurotrash." However snide that comment appeared to be, there is a grain of truth in that description. "Wonderland" won't win points for depth, nor is it even their best, but it's a good collection of above average neo-disco, synth heavy pop tunes. Their debut single "Who Needs Love (Like That)" was a bust on the UK charts, but since then, this infectious ditty would slowly grow to become a favorite among fans. "Oh L'Amour" is also another great slice of 1980's pop bliss with its killer chorus and cheesy-cute synths, and "Heavenly Action" stands out as well. But a personal favorite of mine is the catchy "March on Down the Line." On the first listen, Erasure's work may seem bubblegum and simple compared to their sophisticated peers Pet Shop Boys. But their music is original and can't be mistaken for anyone else, and this fine debut would be the beginning of a career that would spawn several UK Top 10 hits, a few platinum albums, and recognition in the States. Though it's far from a masterpiece, "Wonderland" is a solid debut.

4.0 out of 5 stars Drama! Drama! Drama! June 16, 2000
By Morado
Format:Audio CD
Here's where all the campy dramatic flamboyant brilliant and dreamy music of Erasure all started! For fans of synth-pop, they come highly recommended as they are often imitated yet rarely surpassed. There are other Erasure offerings that may be better like I Say I Say I Say, Chorus, or The Innocents, depending on which fan you talk to. I adore them all.
My favorites include: "Who Needs Love Like That?"/"Cry So Easy"/"Love Is A Loser"/"My Heart...So Blue"/"March On Down The Line"/and of course one of the all time greatest songs "Oh L'Amour."
If you like synth-pop, you may be interested in checking out Iris and Agnes Poetry. Cheers!

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a must have for Erasure fans!!! May 25, 2003
Format:Audio CD
There is too much to talk about when we want to talk about "Wonderland". This album has it all up beat songs ("oh l'amour", "Who needs love like that", "Heavenly action") and great tear jerkers ("cry so easy", "reunion", and my all-time-fav "My heart...So blue"). For a true Erasure fan, this is the must have. This is where it all began (if you count out Yaz). It's amazing that a group like this started out with such a great album and only two songs cracked into the US top 100 ("Oh L'Amour" and "who needs love like that"). But they were big in Europe before many people in the states even heard of them. Then came "The Innocents" and then they blew up. A girlfriend of mine back in high school turned me onto this group in the summer of '88 and I have every album since. They are great and I have many great memories from all of their songs. It's amazing how you can become so attached to a group (Depeche Mode, Yas, R.E.M., U2, etc.). But they came out before "Pop" was really cool.
I do believe that this is the best effort. Too many times in the albums that followed, they tried to obtain a following when they already had a devote fan club.
They produced some great albums over the years, but this is where it all began and this is why you should own it. Especially if you like any of they newer albums.
Songs you must have on your computer:
1. Oh L'Amour (great dance tune)
2. My Hear...So blue (Wave goodbye...)
3. March on Down the line (great up beat song right before "My Heart...So blue")
4. Reunion ("togehter we stand")
5. Who needs love like that (A big dance hit in the clubs)
6. Heavenly action (a great song that's uplifting).
ERASURE fans, if you don't have the original, then you are not true fans!

4.0 out of 5 stars SAY WHAT!? You don't own this!? How SENSELESS! August 31, 1999
Format:Audio CD
Okay, I've finally got the duo's first album and it's pretty much what I expected. Of course I'd heard most of the songs through both the Pop CD (of course) as well as sound samples and MP3s before buying it. In short, this is more typical Vince Clarke synthpop...but what's not to like about that? Although it's nowhere close to the best Erasure would produce, this album served to show that Clarke had finally found a band he could stick with for more than an album or two. His pairing with Bell on "Wonderland" shows a marked improvement over all past efforts (DM and Yaz inclusive), and they would only continue to get better.
The first four songs plus O'Lamour are my favorites from this album with "Senseless" sticking out in my mind particularly as the favorite. A song that should have been included on this album is the b-side to the "Who Needs Love..." single called "Push Me, Shove Me" which is easily better than most of the songs here.
On a side not, I finally see where all the Yaz comparisons are coming from after hearing this album. This album seems like a transition musically for Clarke. While there are shades of what's to come, that disco/club sound of Yaz is still there for all to hear. Bell's vocals as well (which I never thought sounded close to Moyet's before) do seem rather close to Alison Moyet's on this album, most notably in "Cry So Easy". Fortunately, Bell would improve vocally over the next couple of albums and Clarke would evolve musically, forming the Erasure we all know and love today.
