    This album is just fantastic, from the first to the last track. Erasure said they wanted to pay tribute to their idols and I can't think of a better way of doing it. I gotta say, I listened to the original songs and there's no way I would have ever liked most of them. That of course, before the "erasure-touch"!

    Brilliant interpretations by the duo responsible for keeping synth-pop alive.

    Poor, poor work, unoriginal and terribly dull.

    The results have a better chance of ending up in mom's Volvo than your iPod. [Jan 2003, p.76]
  2. Startling for all the wrong reasons.

    The results are risible but the joke is no longer funny. [Feb 2003, p.77]
