A LITTLE RESPECT - Classic sing-a-long at many parties even now. New Wave Synth Pop at its best. Acoustic guitar parts add a little extra to the electronic backing. One of the band's most famous and best songs.
SHIP OF FOOLS - Quite wonderful emotive song, "Ship Of Fools", one of my favourites and a brilliant Synth Pop ballad.
PHANTOM BRIDE - Perfect 80s electronic Pop, catchy, bright and breezy and a nice positive uptempo number.
CHAINS OF LOVE - Almost Motown Soul in structure but with an Electronic backing, again another memorable catchy chorus!
HALLOWED GROUND - Sounds a little like "A Little Respect" backing slowed down a touch but with mysterious ambience and downbeat vocals from Andy Bell.
SIXTY FIVE THOUSAND - A Jazzy almost Art Of Noise type track which you would probably hear on a detective show theme, a little like Dragnet maybe?
HEART OF STONE - Classic Erasure, foot tapping Electro Pop with a memorable and singalong chorus
YAHOO! - Great song, absolutely love this. Bright Pop and with a catchy chorus that has a Gospel-like backing harmonies.
IMAGINATION - A little disappointing but the repetitive catchy chorus redeems it a little, seems too simple.
WITCH IN THE DITCH - Again a little too simple like the previous track. For me it is quite bland and just reminds me of a school assembly song!
WEIGHT OF THE WORLD - Fits in nicely with the theme of this album, it has elements of the usual Erasure style but just in need of a kick to make it a memorable song, although the chorus is quite nice.
