still sucks. hope its fun!

first impressions not always best

I wrote a review of LATEOTW a while back on here and it wasn't favorable to say the least. I just wanted to repost and say that my opinion has changed and it's a decent album. Still not THE best as far as erasure music is concerned [IMO] but, I found the groove, felt the mood and was finally drawn to the new material.

New Album and Interesting Questions

I just listened to "Light at the End of the World" for the first time after downloading it from iTunes today. I like it and know that I'll like it even more after listening to it again. I really liked "Sunday Girl", "I Could Fall in Love With You" (which I already had the single of), "Sucker for Love", and "I Don't Know Why" the best at first listen, but I usually do go for the more uptempo songs. I'll keep listening.

Now for something pretty wierd....I've been a fan of Erasure's since "Wonderland" and have seen them in concert many times. I have known all along that Andy is gay and I assumed that he and Vince were a couple all of these years. I never read anything contradictory to that until tonight when I was looking at the EIS site for lyrics for the new album (which I didn't find). I read a bit of an article about Vince's son, which I found interesting considering I thought he and Andy were a couple. I was further surprised when I read on the Forum that Vince was married to Tracey. I think it is great that he has a family but really wonder if Andy and Vince were ever a couple? Was Vince ever gay or bisexual? And does Andy have a partner?

Imagine....20-plus years of assuming Andy and Vince were partners. What a surprise!

Light At The End Of The World

I've heard the tracks for the new album. I wanted to embrace it really. I wanted to absolutely LOVE every cut right off the bat. I like for a preview to be so good that it encourages me to buy a CD as I have in the past but, I may think twice this time. Let me qualify that as a huge erasure fan, I have enjoyed all of erasure's less popular offerings. I thought 'Loveboat' got an unfair review by many 'fans'. Though the mixing may not have been to some people's liking, I thought the songs themselves were still true erasure gems. I even appreciated 'Other People's Songs' for it's place in the erasure catalog though, it's my least played CD. 'Nightbird' didn't take more than 2 listens for me to be completely acclimated to the new offering and it ranks up there as one of my favorites. The production on Andy's 'Electric Blue' was dead on and lovable. I was hoping that the production on Nightbird and EB would inform all of the production on 'Light At The End Of The World'. In my opinion, it only informed a few of the cuts and a lot was left flat, unfinished and B-side worthy. I am sad. I think the boys should wait longer between albums in hopes of making a better product. And by the way, no Cyndi Lauper duet. I'm sure the songs will grow on me and I will end up liking it at least but, here are my honest first impressions. For those of you who'd rather not cringe just yet, skip me by. I will say - there are instant favorites - tracks 1, 2, 3 and 9 are the real meat of the CD so, at least I have 4 new favorite erasure tunes! For those interested, the cuts are out there if you look. I'm not giving the material to anyone.

From EIS:

For the first time ever, music legends and today's hottest artists take the stage for a historical musical event - Cyndi Lauper, Erasure, Debbie Harry, The Dresen Dolls, The Gossip and The Misshapes with host Margaret Cho join in celebration of the inaugural True Colors concert tour in support of the Human Rights Campaign.

This 15 city nationwide tour, presented by Logo, kicks off Gay & Lesbian Pride Month on June 8th at Las Vegas' MGM Grand Garden Arena. The concerts will feature five hours of nonstop music with other exciting special guests appearing on select dates throughout the tour including Rufus Wainright, Rosie O'Donnell and Indigo Girls with additional guests to be announced.

The Human Rights Campaign seeks to improve the lives of GLBT Americans by advocating for equal rights and benefits in the workplace, ensuring families are treated equally under the law and increasing public support among all Americans through innovative advocacy, education and outreach programs. One dollar of every ticket sold will benefit the Human Rights Campaign.

The tour will also give Americans an opportunity to learn more about and become involved with the Matthew Shepherd Foundation and Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG).

Tickets for select cities will go on sale beginning March 16th and will be available at ticketmaster.com. Alternatively visit the Human Rights Campaign website for advance ticket information.

I am not missing this for the world.
