Erasure – The Violet Flame

erasure-the-violet-flame

'The Violet Flame' has inflamed me

Erasure's 'The Violet Flame' is almost a per­fect Synth Pop album! It's full packed of dreamy tunes, icon­ic pop hymns, it's simply an album made with a lot of pas­sion. Electrified blood must flow in the veins of Andy Bell and Vince Clarke while cre­at­ing this masterpiece.

Their heart beats must be pro­grammed like drum com­puters, so pre­cisely hit the beats the bio­rhythm. And on top of that lyr­ics are there to cry beautiful.

Breathtaking song collection

Every track on this album is superb and immensely strong. Further these 4 songs are the strongest, and highly recom­mend songs on 'The Violet Flame': 'Elevation', 'Reason', 'Sacred' and 'Paradise'. All oth­er tracks are fab­ulous as well, and deserves their 4‑Star ratings.

Personal words

My dear Andy Bell and Vince Clarke, thank you so much for this mas­ter­piece of music. This album makes me cry, feel­ing intense alive, and makes me hap­pily dan­cing with some sor­row in my mind. This album helped me to get through some bleak times. I'm so grate­ful for this soul cleans­ing album.
