"Wow! Over the past few years, I have noticed the increasing popularity in "Tribute" albums for cult classic artists. Example:Depeche Mode, The Cure, Duran Duran etc. The one profound similarity in all of these, is how really BAD they are! This new installment for regergitated trash proves the point that, perfection should not be tampered with. Not only are half of the vocalists on it sound like drunken karaoke singers, but who ever mastered the CD forgot to mix each track down on some what the same level, leaving you adjusting your volume control for each song... That's CHEAP! Oh well, I'm still holding on for a new album which I hope is in the works. Erasure is truly one of the greatest bands of all time. Lets keep any cover songs in the bars for all local bands to do what they must with them, not on my CD player."

"I really wished there was at least one band on this album who spoke English as a first language, but there wasn't. This made for some really bad vocals. The vocalists emphasize the wrong syllables in words, sing really off key and off beat to the music, and get lyrics totally wrong. You would think anyone wishing to cover a song, especially with the added challenge of it being in a foreign language, would look at sheet music to get the notes and lyrics right. I would give it no stars if not for the presence of Equatronic. I like their other stuff, and they do a pretty decent cover of "Siren Song." It's a shame that it's not one of my favorite Erasure songs. Don't waste your money on this CD unless you want to hear your favotite songs painfully mutilated."

"I am from these kind of people who buys every single thing from Erasure, without even look a little further. But when I heard this "tribute", I didn't know what to think. I was expecting a really amazing thing, and what I found was a bunch of unknown bands trying to emulate what I think is the best band ever formed. I agree with those who expected a really different tribute, one made by the best of the best, paying tribute to those 2 guys who really made (and are still making) history. I really don't recommend this CD, I don't want anybody get as disappointed as I got."
