Erasure: Chorus

Phil Sutcliffe, Q, November 1991

MORE THAN A SCORE of Top 30 hits under four different names over 10 years and it seems obvious that Chorus will only keep them coming for Vince Clarke. But this time Erasure may be pushing the easy-when-you-know-how approach a little too far – even though many of these songs are the very essence of the pop-dance craft that's made them massive in the charts and positively refulgent in concert.
