The Innocents~ Erasure is an interesting effort. Some songs are great (respect), others just simply suck (ship of fools). So it is not nearly as good as their first one.

This is undoubtedly the ultimate Erasure album. It was their most successful and reached No.1 in the UK of course. There were 3 singles, but all this cd is full of hits. It's absolutely fantastic 80s pop!

This is quite simply, not only the best ERASURE CD ever produced, but in my opinion the best CD of all time produced. From the upbeat intro of 'Respect' through the moodiness of 'Phantom Bride' to the quirkiness of 'Witch in the ditch' this CD is a masterpiece. This CD has everything, and will always be at the very top of my CD collection.

This is one of Erasure's best albums yet. Anyone who remotely gets into 80s synth-pop should own this album for it's catchy rhythms, good melodies and, if for no other reason, to hear Andy's incredible voice. A must have.

This cd is great from beginning to end. I was not into techno music when I first heard it, but liked it immediately. The music is good and the songs are catchy. What more could you ask for in your 80's music?

"The Innocents" is the third studio album from Vince Clarke and Andy Bell, and it's still their strongest and most consistent album. Strip these songs of their synth-heavy production, and you will still find strong melodies, undeniable hooks, and memorable choruses. While their peers may be Depeche Mode and Pet Shop Boys, Erasure's songrwriting style is a vague throwback to the 1960s, when people like Burt Bacharach composed lighthearted, but not lightheaded, clever pop tunes. "Chains of Love," "Phantom Bride," and "Heart of Stone" age and hold up well after all these years. Playing "The Innocents" is like wearing your favorite sweater: it's warm and comfortable, and it does the job nicely. Clarke and Bell continued to make good records, but none could top this excellent release from the 1980s.

This is, bar none, the finest Erasure album of all time. First, you get the two 1980's blockbusters: A Little Respect and Chains of Love. Secondly, the non-released tracks are as good or better!! Phantom Bride, Heart of Stone, Hallowed Ground, and Ship of Fools are among Andy and Vince's purest and most gripping work.
If you like love songs with some techno flavor and electronica but without the out-and-out synth-pop sound, you'll find "The Innocents" is the only Erasure album you can truly get into and truly love.
"Cowboy", "I Say I Say I Say", and "Wonderland" are all excellent choices... But if you're looking for Erasure's best stuff on one album, you simply gotta go with "The Innocents."
P.S. The album art kicks [tush] too.
