Nightbird is a real return to
form for Erasure after the last self-written album of Loveboat. The
album is full of upbeat tunes and bouncy synths.
The real stand out is the single 'Breathe' - along with 'I'll Be There'
(with March On Down The Line-esque synths) and 'All This Time' along
with Sweet Surrender.
The biggest let down though is 'Here I Go Impossible Again'. After
hearing all these wonderful things about it on the forums, I was
expecting it to be awesome - but when I heard it I thought 'Was that
it?'. It's good, but not brilliant.
On the whole Nightbird is a really strong Erasure album but is by no
means one of the most strong Erasure albums.
