Two of my favorite people of all time. Though the best part of both bands (DM and Erasure) was how the arrangements wrapped around expressive vocals. So I'm unsure how I feel about them just doing pure electronic music.
It's a pretty solid album, I have to say. Very solid extremely well produced stuff. If nothing else, it's a nice change of pace for both fellows, especially Vince Clarke whose Erasure work has been steadily getting worse and worse over the last few years. It's nice to hear him let loose with the technology he loves rather than just be stuck inside a little "generic pop music" box.

yeah, the latest Erasure album made me so sad. It had a few nice Vincey moments but the production was just atrociously bad, because they got that Frankmusic hack to produce it. Every song had the same repetitive dance production cliches... it just wasn't an Erasure album. I even liked Light at the End of the World okay... I mean, at least I could tell it was them.
If you check out the "deluxe" version of the new Erasure album, it has a collection of what are referred to as "demo" tracks which are clearly the songs as Clarke pretty much originally intended them and the difference is pretty obvious.

yeah! I got that one actually. The demos felt so much more like them, which sort of made me feel better after the first listen. I know they're getting older, but jesus guys... produce your own shit.
