OK, I'll admit it. I had no idea this album was out. I was watching VH1 and the classic/current show had a back to back set of Erasure with the single Breathe as the current track - and I was impressed enough to get in the car and go buy Nightbird.

I really like this album a lot. If you've ever been a fan, I recommend picking it up, even if you were scared away by some of their more recent stuff. The best way that I can describe it is that it sounds like Erasure crossed with the techno / experimental sound of the early 90's tracker scene mods. I saw that they used software synths to do the album, and I've got to tell you I love the sound.

If you haven't checked it out, I recommend that you give it a listen. Very good stuff.



Willful ignorance of science is not commendable. Refusing to learn the difference between a credible source and a shill is criminally stupid.

Erasure has ten shows booked in the month of April at Irving Plaza in New York City, and all ten of them are sold out. In fact, seven of them were sold out in January. Amazing.

Note - Irving Plaza's website lists only eight as being sold out, but I was told two weeks ago that the last two sold out as well.

Being an Erasure fan from back in the day... DAMN I'm old... I was really looking forward to this cd since Loveboat wasn't ever officially released here and the last thing we got from them was a covers cd that wasn't as bad as you'd think, but as a swansong to thier career, I felt a little let down by this one. I'm hoping it'll grow on me, but if this is going to be the last album from them I'd have rather they just did a live one recorded from the last tour.
