I Say I Say I Say~ Erasure is not one of their better albums. It feels like they wanted to make some more money and released junk that would not have made other better albums. Come on guys, you can do much better then this, can't you?

Erasure most famous for beeing one of the best synth pop band of the 80's made their best album in 1994 with "I say i Say i say". This album is meliodic with a great fresh dance pop sound. The songs are warm and the lyrics beautiful and intellegent. I can really see why other liked this album. The first single "Always" was a good choise, and also a good description of the sound of this album. It was actually one of my favotite 90's songs. Vince Clarke's genius and Andy Bell's high octane voice shines here. Songs like the dance-pop song "I love saturday" "Run to the sun" and "Man on Moon" are also memorable of this 90's classic. There are 10 songs included and none are bad, if you want something slow then you'll like "Because You're So Sweet" or "So The Story Goes". Applauds for the box cover too, it's quite unique and always reminds me of how much i liked "Always".

I think this album marks the delineation between the "old" Erasure and the "new" Erasure. Starting with the Circus, and continuing through the Abba-esque E.P., Erasure really hit pay dirt, with hits like A Little Respect and Love to Hate You. Their cover of ABBA's Take a Chance on Me was also a hit.
Then, I Say... came out. Always, the first single, is a great song, with its elegaic tone and sound, a natural follow-up to the Chorus album. Unfortunately, Erasure didn't inject enough of that sentiment into the whole of I Say, I Say, I Say. Granted, this album is upbeat, cheery, and sunny. But a couple of "darker" moments would have helped. Think of the two preceding albums- Wild! had Brother and Sister, and 10,000 Miles, while Chorus had Love to Hate You, and Perfect Stranger. There is too much froth in I Say... Take Me Back is a wonderful tune, but other tracks like Miracle and Man on the Moon are too saccharine; I can't stand to listen to them anymore. All Through the Years stands out as a more somber tune, but that distorted "reverb" backing vocal mars an otherwise great song.
Erasure is at their best when they blend catchy, dance-oriented pop melodies with more somber soundscapes. I Say, I Say, I Say, indeed.

In my opinion, this is Erasure's finest album. I can't put my finger on exactly what makes it better, as I love each of their other album's, but there is something magical in this one. There is something inspirational and cosmic about the music contained in this little CD.
I pop this in and sit down to write, because this is just the type of music that inspires a person to dream of far off places. From the music box tinkling of "Always" to the softly stirring "Blues Away," the mood permeates the room, and I never have to skip a song -- they are all so good. When I'm not writing, I stare at the CD cover, which somehow is the perfect reflection of the tone of this album.
If you like Erasure, you will love this one. "There's no release when destiny is calling."

Erasure's Vince Clarke once told Keyboard Magazine, "I prefer my music coming from the moon." We haven't found life on the moon - or anywhere else, yet. But if intelligent beings from outer space were to write a pop record, it might sound something like "I Say I Say I Say." This ten-song collection is so good, it seems almost supernaturally inspired.
Before 1994, Erasure albums were showcases for great pop songs - "A Little Respect," "Chains of Love," "Oh L'amour." With "I Say I Say I Say," they sustain their pop wizardry for the length of an entire CD. Andy Bell, one of popular music's best vocalists, breathes passion into every lyric, while keyboardist Clarke infuses each synthesizer note and drum machine beat with technical ingenuity.
"Take Me Back" opens the disc with a hypnotic keyboard arpeggio that sounds something like a radio transmission from outer space. Bell joins in with a soulful chant, before the song explodes ecstatically into an instantly memorable melody. Erasure's journey through hyperspace continues with a series of infectious tracks: "I Love Saturday," "Man in the Moon" and "Run to the Sun" all burst with kinetic energy. Only the haunting, moody "So the Story Goes" interrupts the giddy mood. Bell and Clarke downshift into mellow territory for the second half of the record; highlights include the lovely "Always" and the wistful "All Through the Years." There isn't a wasted track - or note - on the entire CD.
"I Say I Say I Say" showcases Erasure - and electronic pop - at its very best.

I love the entire album. There's not a song that I'll skip over while listening to it. I do have my favorites, such as "Always" and "So the Story Goes." But the entire work is uplifting, even soulful. This isn't an album to get you in the mood for a deep conversation about the universe and the meaning of life, but the lyrics are clever and well-thought-out. Many artists in this genre don't seem to give much thought to their lyrics, but Erasure is in that rare percentage of artists who can say something poetic to a catchy tune and infectious beat that will keep you humming well after the song is finished. This is my favorite Erasure album, with Chorus coming in second and Cowboy bringing up the number three spot. If you don't like electronica, don't get the album. But if you have an open mind about what genre you allow yourself to enjoy, you'll be pleased with your purchase.
