Review Summary: Reverberating for too long, Erasure has finally unleashed a remix album consisting of great backbeats, outstanding vocals, and presenting a wide variety of influences by other popular artists remixes records.

2 of 2 thought this review was well written

The assortment and design appointed by the duo known as 'Erasure', is perfected in a variety of ways, each to appeal to a different brand of people. The synthpop masterpieces made by 'Erasure' have for many years, given a broader look into this subdivision of electronic coordination. The fantastic mishmash of backbeats presented in this work, courtesy of songwriter and keyboardist Vince Clarke, and the beautiful vocals offered by Andy Bell, have for so many albums, appealed to their audience. The put together of this album was derived however, from a different concept.

'Erasure' has been rocking steadily back and forth with their content thus far, but no real stance has been seen since "Nightbird" of 2005. The standoff feature given to Erasure is on the actuality that they are good friends with samples. The judgment made up by this epic duo is sequentially paired up with their love of samples. Following in the footsteps of their love to write, their hit song "Be with you" is remixed indubitably well, and in several manners. As well as hit remixes, is a short get-in-the-way track
"Never Let You Down". Unpopular though, the remixes in here are not always seen as a substantial craft, and are often thrown away by mainstream society. The radio version of "Be with you" is second to none, closely related to the Moto Blanco radio edit realized in track two. Along with the Moto Blanco club mix later in the album, comes about the time when the idea of remixing one song starts to deteriorate from the minds of Erasures' audience. But even further down the line is the acoustic version of this song, which is by far, the worst version on this piece. Being related to their particular genre, is a high ruling trait pertaining to Erasure, and to avoid that in one of your edits is a good waste of space when crafting a remix record. This is apparent in almost all aspects to this trend, and is seen wasting away many an artist as the years go by. But, fortunately for this duo, it is not too demoralizing to their efforts that it means the destiny of this record is the garbage disposal.

High influences of this albums' sound seem to be majorly derived from other famous remix albums, such as Fatboy Slims' "Greatest Remixes" album, which was a classic. Ministry of Sound was another good example of similar traits you can find in this collection, as well as Richard Grey. This album supports many artists’ inspirations in it, and is by no means anything original. But, as far as remixes go, this is a pretty good effort, inspired by the genius songwriter, Vince Clarke, and the gay icon Andy Wallace. Yes, you heard it right here folks, Andy is gay, but in all honesty, it doesn’t ruin this album anyway, by no means. This one song remix combination was purely signified from start, to almost finish. (The acoustic version)

Now becoming yet another good remix record, Erasure have gone and inaugurated their success once again. This is not necessarily high up on the tall scale of classics seen for generations now, and often left obscure to the public eye, but in the end results in a plain, and simple and somewhat relaxing piece collection of good detail, and rocking vocals. In spite of the momentary loss Erasure was experiencing in "I Say I Say I Say" has been for the most part forgiven in this piece. Kudos to the English duo for crafting this much needed remix album.
