    I put this album in the green by a hair based on 3 really solid tracks and my love for the duo's music since I first heard Victim of Love in the 80s. Where Erasure always maintained an lushly independent sound in the earlier years, Tomorrow's World tries desperately to cram drastically different styles into a single work and it feels degraded to broad gay club riffs than a their signatureI put this album in the green by a hair based on 3 really solid tracks and my love for the duo's music since I first heard Victim of Love in the 80s.

Hearing an autotuned version of Andy Bell's gracefully maturing vocals made my heart sink. Expand

    Tinny vocal compression (Rolling Stone review)? It's worse than that: Autotune. On Andy's voice. Too much of this effort sounds like the strict dance album Andy put out as his last solo work, only worse. The synth settings are mostly awful Eurodisco-sounding. The mid-tempo thinkers are more properly Erasure, but there aren't enough of them to rescue this from a 5. This will be one ofTinny vocal compression (Rolling Stone review)?

This will be one of those Erasure albums (you know the ones) where nearly every remix will be superior to the original track. Expand

    This is Erasure's best album in a while! I've always been a big fan, and some of my other favorite Erasure albums include some of the earlier stuff (Wonderland, The Innocents, Wild!) and the 90s analog synth stuff (Crackers International, Chorus, Abba-Esque, I Say I Say I Say, Erasure.) Tomorrow's World sounds current, but still sounds like Erasure.

    It's early Erasure fans who seen likely to enjoy the '80s electro sheen of the all-action rhythmo-melodic hooks and subplots. [Nov 2011, p.100]

    The duo's hook-laden, dangerously infectious, bottom-wiggling formula is still in place. [Oct 2011, p.112]

    Tomorrow's World appeals to fans of Erasure's later albums just as much as it appeases those who swooned along to A Little Respect in 1988.
