Wild!~ Erasure is pretty good. But just like many of their albums it lacks consistent effort. They are happy to churn out some good tunes, (blue savannah song), and then to fill it with...crap...

Obviously tired of the confines of mere synthesizers, Vince Clark made "Wild!" into the most organic and lush sounding Erasure album to date. While not as instantly hook laden as "The Innocents," it has stood the test of time better than most of Erasure's catalog. As a songwriting team, Clark and Bell also managed to pen a trio of classic singles with "Drama!," "Star" and the magnificent "Blue Savannah."
They also began to test the limits of their lyrical concerns, as "Crown Of Thorns" takes a bitter look at the future of England before the album winds out with "Piano Song." Andy seems intrigued by the chance to perform a more expansive set of songs; save for "Chorus," this is the best sung of all the Erasure albums. Listen to the difference between the operatic campiness of "Drama!" as compared to the deeper coloration of "How Many Times." Not like all is changed, the dance grooves of "2000 Miles" and "Brother and Sister" cook. In fact, the only real dud here is "La Gloria," where the experiment in Latin rhythms misses the target.
Out of the many Erasure albums available, "Wild!" is one of the few I can recommend as a whole album.

This album is 15 years old(!), but has aged fairly well. After they hit their stride with The Circus and The Innocents, Erasure became hugely popular in the U.S. (at least, among lovers of New Wave/Postmodern music) with Wild! Vince Clarke, in one of the interviews on the 2nd disc of the Hits! DVD said that he wanted Erasure to be remembered as great songwriters. On Wild!, there are a lot of great songs, with inspired lyrics and killer hooks.
If Erasure is only remembered for a couple of songs, Blue Savannah deserves to be one of them (A Little Respect would be the other choice). A friend of mine in high school said that she felt chills up her spine when she first heard the album version of the song. On the radio, the beginning part, with Andy humming/crooning, was cut. I was really stunned when she told me this, because that's exactly what happened to me the first time I heard the album version! Part of the bliss of Erasure is that a song with such an obscure title as Blue Savannah could be one of their greatest hits.
After the euphoria of Blue Savannah come the high of Drama! In my mind, this is perhaps the most "operatic" of Erasure's songs. Aside from the aggressive energy created by the synthesizers, there is the "guilty" chorus, which reminds me of opera. Too bad another reviewer here finds it distracting; I find it to be pure genius! Equally as thrilling are the lyrics, such as, "God only knows the ultimate necessity of love." Sadly, this song didn't get airplay in the U.S., since it rates among their very best.
After the thrilling Drama! comes How Many Times, which is quite the opposite in mood. Another personal favorite, it has Andy singing in a lower register, which produces a "seductive" mood.

Andy and Vince's follow up to the Innocents album and the Crackers Internation EP is a mixed bag. It features some great songs...and some not so great songs. As a whole even with the attempt to open and close with Piano Song it doesn't flow like a sold album more than a collection of tunes. Here's whats on it:
Piano Song (Instrumental)--a nice few opening notes to let you know what is coming...it flows right well into
Blue Savannah-One of, if not Andy's fav. A really beautifully sung haunting track. Definitely one of Erasure's classics!
Drama-ok...I honestly don't get the interest in this song. I think the chorus is ok and Vince's music is great...but together..it's just off. Not a personal favorite of mine. The screaming chorus of "Guilty" distracts!
How Many Times?-must I skip this song. Not a favorite and completely out of place! Sorry guys but this just isn't strong!
Star-great poppy dance song. I love this track. It simply jamns and deserves a replay!
La Gloria-I've tried to like this but the spanish/mexican flair just doesn't do it for me. Too much camp for me!
You Surround Me-Probably my favorite track off this album because Andy's vocals are dark and deeper than I can recall from previous songs. Great music, great lyrics makes a great song!
Brother and Sister-ROCKET!! This is a great song...ending vocals are so powerful. I think this honestly jamns and is a far superior song than Drama..this should have been 3rd single.
2,000 Miles-Interesting if somewhat quirky Erasure sounding song. It works for me. Interesting lyrics...can't say its typical Erasure
Crown of Thorns-almost what I call Enyaesque....good solid lyrics, well song, good music I like this.

Go to the orange side... May 15 2001
By "tom2600@aol.com" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
If there was one word to describe Wild! it would be "lush". Although everything is still 99.9% electronic, there are samples of pianos, strings and other "real" sounds to give the album a fairly organic and natural feel - at least in comparison to the analogue blips and bleeps that would be the trademark sound on the following albums.
What makes this album so great is that it is perhaps Erasure's most diverse collection of songs yet everything flows together in a coherent way. From the silly pseudo-Latin pop of "La Gloria" to the amazingly beautiful ballad "You Surround Me" to the dark and minimal "Piano Song", every song stands apart from one another but yet fits together nicely. A common complaint about the album is that while there are some great songs there's quite a bit of filler as well. I was one that once agreed with that sentiment, but over the years I've grown to appreciate every single song on the album. It is not as strong as The Innocents, Chorus or their self-titled album, but it is a classic in its own right. My only real complaint is that it's rather short - roughly 35 minutes. If they ever re-release it with some of the great b-sides off the singles on that album (Paradise, Dreamlike State, etc.) as bonus tracks, then I'll give it 5 stars, but for now, it'll be 4.

Born to be "Wild." Sept. 15 2002
By The Groove - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
"Wild" is the followup to international smash "The Innocents," and while it's no instant winner like its predecessor, it's certainly a step forward for Vince Clarke and Andy Bell. There's the gorgeous rush of "Blue Savannah;" the synth bleeps of the catchy "Brother and Sister," and the touching love ballad "You Surround Me." While "Wild" went to No.1 in the UK, the CD stalled on the US charts and was ignored by fickle fans who wanted a sequel to "Chains of Love." However, it's become a fan's favorite and deserves a spin on your CD player.

<ROCKET> June 7 2000
By Morado - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I saw Erasure on the Wild! tour and it was one of the best concerts ever with a great stage show! This is one of thier top 5 CD's too. Vince and Andy throw down some wicked dance grooves and some memorable slower tracks as well. The surreal dreamy lyrics are ever present of course.
My favorites are: "Blue Savannah"/ "Drama!"/ "La Gloria"/ "You Surround Me"/ "Brother and Sister"/ and the brilliant "Piano Song."
This is smooooth!

the pinnacle of their career April 27 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
this is their most musically mature and therefore their best album. erasure seemed to have reached the pinnacle of their career with wild. cuz everything after that has gone downhill. way down. ever noticed how the synthesizer sounds really wimpy after this album? and the singing has regressed, too.
