"30 years after the release of their debut album, ERASURE (Andy Bell and Vince Clarke) celebrate their incredible career and friendship with a 13 disc anthology box set charting their award-winning songwriting partnership. Mute / BMG are delighted to announce From Moscow To Mars – An Erasure Anthology. Curated by Vince and Andy it is a sumptuous box of memories of Erasure’s intergalactic journey through the pop and glitter and love that has defined their story so far. And theirs is a story that shows no signs of an ending, the band are currently in the studio working on a brand new album for 2017. The BRIT and Ivor Novello winning pop duo have released a staggering number of albums, including 5 UK Number 1’s and 17 top 10 singles (35 singles charted in the UK Top 40) and their recent best of, Always, saw the band entering the Top 10 album charts once again. From Moscow To Mars is a 13-disc box set that includes all of the band’s 50 singles, a CD from both Vince and Andy compiling their favourite tracks, CDs of remixes (from Martyn Ware, William Orbit, Little Boots, Youth, Shep Pettibone, Chris & Cosey, to name but a few), b-sides, live material and rarities PLUS a radio documentary about the band and the Wild! concert, available on DVD for the first time. The 12” rigid box also contains a hard-back book full of unseen photos, two 12” art cards, a postcard set and a book of stamps, as well as a “space passport”."

I'm just listening to it now, and WOW. Even the original singles is like hearing them new for the first time. I compared tracks to the original CD album recordings, and the ones on this anthology must have been re-mastered because they are a better recording level and much clearer. I'm hearing details I've never heard before in songs I've listened to hundreds of times!
So if you're a fan and you've been on the fence - just get it and I think you'll be pleased! Besides, you also get the Wild! tour on DVD, IMO one of their best albums and a heck of a fun show. I can finally retire my old VHS tape now...
As soon as I opened the packaging and saw the box set, I was impressed by the quality and attention to detail. It really does feel as though you've purchased something pretty special. I was concerned that I was perhaps spending a considerable amount of money on tracks which I mostly already owned, but now realise that it is so much more than a repackaged greatest hits. The live tracks, remixes, long forgotten b-sides are wonderful, and have served to remind me just how good Erasure are at creating the perfect pop song.
I'm thrilled with my purchase, and would wholeheartedly recommend any Erasure fan to snap up a copy of this amazing collection before they disappear.
The box set is what I have some trouble with. Too many things included that have little value, and are not necessary. I would liked to have seen the CD's presented on their own in better containers, easier to take one or more with you if you just wanted them for the day.
Would also liked to have seen an extended interview with the singing duo, as well as the great DVD included here.
You can't argue with the music, but the bells and whistles you get with the boxed set don't warrant the price.
