    Erasure's 5th and last decent studio album. Despite having 3 outstanding tracks (Chorus, Breath of Life, Siren Song), it was their weakest to this point - in fact, 'Always' (7" Mix, 1994), was the last good song they wrote beyond this point. Erasure's best albums: 1. The Innocents; 2. Wild; 3. The Circus; 4. Wonderland; 5. The Two Ring Circus; 6. Chorus ...All subsequent albums were either poor or had no outstanding songs on them (apart from the song, 'Always').

    After 17 years I have decided this album is a classic: good thing nobody was holding their breath. Then again, it was not a snap decision, eh?
