Containing some of Erasure's most anthemic work, the big production by Gareth Jones and the band themselves has resulted in a kind of synthpop grandeur that borders on techno in places, with the catchy hooks that have become synonymous with Erasure throughout their career.
For those who regard Erasure as a purely electronic concern, this album explodes the myth by comprising of re-imaginings of previous Erasure songs in a country or acoustic style that shows just how talented Vince Clarke and Andy Bell are as songwriters.
Described as a "mature masterpiece" and a "return to form" thanks to its fastidious production and dazzling three-minute pop songs, Erasure's eleventh studio album Nightbird is considered by some to contain some of Erasure's best work.
With an eclectic selection of songs by artists including Buddy Holly, Peter Gabriel and The Righteous Brothers, Vince and Andy chose tracks that had influenced them as musicians which are brought together by Vince's distinctive instrumentation and Andy's unmistakable voice.
This album sees a departure from the band's trademark synthpop, relying more heavily on acoustic guitar and lo-fi production than its predecessors. Produced by the band and Flood, Vince and Andy's considerable songwriting skills shine through and the album was well-received by critics.
Originally released in 1997 and produced by Gareth Jones (Depeche Mode, Wire) and Neil McLennan (The Prodigy, Carl Cox, Sasha), this album saw the boys revisiting the three-minute synthpop that made them a household name in the 1980s, resulting in a Top 10 chart position in the UK.
Produced by Gareth Jones (Depeche Mode, Wire) and Thomas Fehlmann (The Orb), this self titled album is experimental and introspective, with lush instrumentation influenced by the '90s dance/electro scene with its heavy basslines and occasional rave motifs.
Produced by Martyn Ware (founder member of The Human League and Heaven 17), it became Erasure's fourth consecutive number one album in the UK and generated three top 20 singles. Erasure proved with this album that they still did pop better than anyone else.
Erasure's fifth studio album which achieved Platinum sales status and was shortlisted for the Mercury Music Prize in 1992. Delivering four hit singles, including the impossibly catchy 'Chorus' and the flamboyant live showstopper 'Love To Hate You'.
Released in 1989, Wild! continued Erasure's mainstream success, becoming their second consecutive number 1 album in the UK, going double platinum and its four singles (including 'Blue Savannah' and 'Drama!') all hitting the Top 20.
Produced by Stephen Hague, The Innocents captured Vince and Andy's star in the ascendant; its huge pop sound and catchy choruses catapulting Erasure to super-stardom in their home country and giving them their long-awaited U.S. breakthrough.
Erasure rounded out their sound, wrote some astonishing pop songs and delivered their second album The Circus (also produced by Flood) six months after its first single Sometimes went to the #2 spot in the UK singles chart.
Produced by Flood and featuring lush instrumentation and the soulful falsetto of newcomer singer Andy Bell, the album's sound is unmistakably Vince Clarke and this album is now acknowledged as a classic example of mid-80s synth pop.
The Erasure 30th anniversary celebrations began with the release of the new compilation Always - The Very Best Of Erasure, which brings the Erasure story bang up to date.
