Anyone looking for a proper master of this album should check out the FLAC version World Be Gone that was available with printed code via redemption for purchasers of the vinyl or digital download. They (the FLAC files) sound amazing when compared to what was released on cd or record. The code also allows an mp3 download which unfortunately is in a very lossy 160kps format.

This is an amazing album but unfortunately ruined it with a lousy mastering. Everything sounds distorted and compressed to the fullest. Very Sad :(

Did anyone else notice that the title font for this album is the same as "Wild!"? Think there's some significance to it or just lazy?

This album is just amazing. A perfect balanced atmosphere between "I Say I Say I Say" & "Erasure S/T". Ironically, these are the two sequential records that made the duo fell out in popularity and be kicked out of the charts. Nevertheless, these mentioned records reward the repeated listener without any doubt. "World Be Gone" is just perfect, melody-wise and lyrically powerful. The dancer fans won't enjoy much, but the more dark, intrinsic ones will regard this as one of the best albums of their career up to date. The cover image is a departure from everything that has been done - great imagery and with all its proper standing meaning - World Be Gone! You will love this.
