As much as people love to bash this release, the fact of the matter is that it contains some of Erasure's best work. They completely made Solsbury Hill their own, revived Make Me Smile (Come Up And See Me) like no one else ever could, gave Buddy Holly some electro-shimmer, and even showed the Righteous Brothers what harmonies their Lovin' Feeling should have contained. However, the shining gem of this collection lies in a little known track that was originally written and performed by an odd little duck of a female by the name of Buffy Sainte Marie. The track is, 'Goodnight', and it is itself a composition of such weight that it boggles the mind to think that this petite little half-breed came up with it all on her own. And then, much to the songs credit, Erasure did to the song what only they can do ... they made it even better. If 'Goodnight' doesn't bring a tear to your eye, you're not human. A few duds on this one, but all in all, excellent stuff.

The critics already ticked-off this one so I'll spare other readers of saying how pointless Erasure's attempt on this one actually was... Yes, everyone immediately comes up to 'ABBA-esque', a charming four-track cover set which fitted much better to the duo's electronic pulsations. With 'Other People's Songs' you get neither more nor less, you get 'Other People's Songs' packed up in the expected electro-frame but sadly without the effect we used to expect from Erasure. It could have been a far more interesting affair if it hasn't been so irritatingly frigid electronics - twink-twank synth trademarks of Vince Clarke and Andy Bell's gorgeous vocals that still repair the damage along the way. In total one of the reviewers said Erasure's fans won't be disappointed. That's true albeit that's also a fact - they won't be thrilled either, because the duo was so charmlessly self-indulging regarding this, rather hollow package. With one exception - 'Video Killed the Radio Star', their perfect answer to the 70's worn-off original spank. And it's not because computer sings instead of Andy, it's the perfect Erasure - sadly, the duo mistakenly took on acoustic standards such as 'Solsbury Hill' that insisted on a far more better introduction than this Eurovision song contest electro-version. Wonder what Peter Gabriel thinks of it.
