Album review: Erasure - Snow Globe

ERASURE ... Snow Globe (Mute).
ERASURE ... Snow Globe (Mute).

DANCE duo Erasure are first out of the festive album traps with this quirky offering, and, you know, it’s not bad.

The 13 tracks include original compositions as well as their take on some seasonal favourites.

Their first album since 2011’s Tomorrow’s World, it works surprisingly well, particularly sparse versions of standards such as Silent Night and Bleak Midwinter, though White Christmas is a little odd.

Elsewhere, There’ll Be No Tomorrow is classic Erasure electro-pop, and it could appeal to more than the diehards. 7/10. GW
