Re: Album has FINALLY leaked!

Are we again going to discuss Erasure here?

Re: Did You See Me Coming Lyrics/Discussion

The crystalline synths are all over Yes. It's what makes it such a brilliant album - it's like Wags Aloud but considerably less orange and with brains.

Re: Andy Bell (Erasure) comments on PSB Brit Award

Andy's comment would have been a fantastically dignified response, if he hadn't brought up this "working class" nonsense. Aside from the issue of the validity of his claims, this idea rife among journalists that music is inherently superior if it has been created by people who grew up in ...

I've been extremely busy with my media commitments but obviously the anticipation of a new PSB release brings one out of the shadows once more.

Re: Rating LOVE ETC

According to most of reviewers "Pandemonium" and "More than a dream" are better. Even "The way it used to be" could be better than "Love etc" but it looks like it wasn't single material. According to Popjustice "All around the world" is better than ...

Re: Love Etc

It's f*cking awesome - their best lead single since Can you forgive her? It's everything people have wanted them to do for ages - minimal and electronic but also incredibly insistent too. I was expecting something a lot more like Go West (because of the call-and-response) but it's a very pleasant su...
