5.0 out of 5 stars An Ambient Masterpiece Feb. 26 2011
By Quexos
Format:Audio CD
I am relatively familiar with Erasure's music, although I cannot say that I know too much about their work pre-I Say I Say I Say.
That aside, though, I feel compelled to express my opinion on this, their self-titled album. To begin with, this is an album that you will probably HAVE to listen to in its entirety in one sitting (or, in my case, over and over in one sitting) in order to grasp the full impact behind this work of art. Each and every track is a beautiful, emotional, melodic journey straight to the heart. When taken as a whole, however, they form to produce one of the most cohesive "concept" albums ever (truly this album is greater than the sum of its individual parts). THIS IS WHAT MUSIC SHOULD BE. Some have expressed their discontent with the length of the album (over 70 minutes) or individual songs (the longest clocking in at nearly 10 minutes). This is an example of the attitude toward and unfortunate state of "pop" music today. True art cannot, and should not, be judged by predetermined expectations of various constraints. Certainly in some cases albums tend to ramble on with unnecessary tracks or endless vocal repetitions. This is not the case here. If you are a connoisseur of romantic ballads and are weary of the current slate of musical offerings, I HIGHLY recommend this brilliant work by arguably the most accomplished synth-popsters in recent memory. You may end up wishing the album went on for another 70 minutes....

3.0 out of 5 stars Erasure June 22 2004
Format:Audio CD
Erasure~ Erasur is a case where good music meets terrible lyrics. I mean just downright awfull lyrics. Andy Belle must have been freebasing drugs and spending way to much time with lovers then writing this obvious junk. Come on Andy is this as good as it gets for this one?

5.0 out of 5 stars Dunno if I can top Larry's review but... June 18 2004
Format:Audio CD
I must say this is my favorite album of all-time just nudging past Erasure's "I Say I Say I Say."
What makes this album so great, and every Erasure album, is that Andy and Vince complement each other so well. It is easy to get lost in the layered synths or the emotion in Andy's voice. When Erasure are on, like they are here, you're getting lost in both of them at the same time.
"Erasure" is the best album because it is Erasure doing what they want to do. The numerous tracks over 5 minutes gives Vince time to add in more catchy bleeps and bloops in classic Erasure form as seen in Rescue Me and Fingers and Thumbs(A Cold Summer's Day). The length of the songs also gives Andy time to sing some deep songs painting a more clear and thus more emotional picture of the song he wants to get out. Good examples for that can be seen in Sono Luminus and I Love You. The length of the songs enhances the usual Erasure mood through their music and paints a clearer picture through more (emotional) lyrics.
While I enjoy all of Erasure's album, I really felt their freedom on "Erasure" to take their time with their songs really enhances what they want to say. It is a shame they haven't repeated the length of these tracks on album's released after. However their October 2004 album "Nightbird" may bring back the level of depth as "Erasure" showed.
And forget the reviewer who says the lyrics are too cliche. Erasure has a message, one only need listen to Grace, Sono Luminus or A Long Goodbye to see how deep and thoughful these lyrics are.
If you want to listen to an album that will play with your emotions there is no better one than Erasure's "Erasure" because Vince's synths & Andy's voice and lyrics are emotion charged and most importantly at length. There is time for the songs to grow and your emotions to stir.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Music, Bad Lyrics June 7 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
To every song, there are two main compontents--the lyrics and the music. While the music on this CD is better than most of the chewed-up-and-spit-out "pop" of today, it isn't as good as some other music. This CD is mostly a "mood" CD. While it won't make you think (at all), it does have the tendency to relax you. Very very good background music.
Now, to the lyrics. 100% cliche. Not very creative at all. "Night Owls;" "you made your bed, now lie in it;" "sands of time;" cliches are abundant. If lyrics are very important to you, do not buy this CD.
Overview: Nice, relaxing music. Cliched lyrics. Good CD, but there's been better--much better.
