Remarkable return to form.

"After 1995's expansive, experimental "Erasure" album, and its subsequent poor sales and decidedly mixed reception (even among fans), Erasure returned to their roots on 1997's "Cowboy." The emphasis here is on hooks, melodies and catchy arrangements (Andy Bell said "Cowboy" is "ultrapop")--nothing deep, nothing innovative. And it works perfectly. With Vince Clarke's melodic gifts still in fine form and Andy Bell's voice as clear and pristine as ever (in addition to his romantic, occasionally awkward lyrics), "Cowboy" is the fourth straight near-perfect pop album from Erasure. Some bands fade creatively as the years go by--Erasure continues to improve. From the crashing, shimmering opening chords of "Rain" to the last emotive note of "Love Affair," this is one of music's finest songwriting collaborations doing what they do best: writing classic pop songs without angst or apologies. If you're new to Erasure, "Cowboy" is the perfect place to start. If you're an Erasure fan already, it will remind you of why you fell in love with their music in the first place. Either way, buy "Cowboy"--you won't regret it."

"I've owned COWBOY since it hit the stores back in 1997. It's a CD that continues to make me smile even two years later. WORLDS ON FIRE, HOW CAN I SAY, SAVE ME DARLING, AND LOVE AFFAIR are some of the best sounds and melodies from this super duo! After reading some of the reviews, I decided to pop the CD in my player and listen. I'm enjoying it again. This would be one of the CD's I'd consider taking to that deserted island we all talk about...If you own older Erasure CD' your self a favor and buy COWBOY. You will be pleased with the purchase! I saw Erasure on the COWBOY tour and it was fantastic. It's nice to see so many devoted fans in one venue!"
One of the best Erasure CDs in my humble opinion.

"Wow, so many different reviews here from bad to really good. Here's my scoop: I have every Erasure CDs except their very first one. Erasure is famous for their melancholy, upbeat, searching-for-love songs. Personally, I like their more happier upbeat songs than their "sad" stuff. Cowboy CD is one of their most upbeat CDs that I know. That's why I love it so much! To me, it sounds like a "greatest hits" CD. Another good one is I Say, I Say, I Say. My least favorite in their 90's release is their no name titled CD in 1995. It's rather slow, more sad, melancholy stuff that it sounds too dragging and monotonous to me."
