  1. 7.0 |   Independent on Sunday

    It's as if Erasure are saying to their less sophisticated successors: this is how you do it

  2. 6.0 |   Rolling Stone

    Twenty-six years after the act's first single, the nine-song set shows that keyboardist-mastermind Vince Clarke's genius for weaving grand melodies with ecstatic beats is still intact

  3. 6.0 |   PopMatters

    While these guys might be elder statesmen, they hardly belong in an old folks’ club

  4. 6.0 |   Consequence Of Sound

    If you want an example of the first wave of synthpop and excellently crafted, catchy dance music, there aren’t many better than Erasure, and this is another album that affirms their reputation

  5. 6.0 |   No Ripcord

    Despite the air of business as usual, Tomorrow’s World is Erasure’s strongest album since the mid-90s. That’s some sort of progress, surely?

  6. 5.0 |   The Digital Fix

    Too glossy and different for existing fans, and of little interest to the mainstream, it's the sound of a band who have lost their way

  7. 4.0 |   Mojo

    Print edition only

  8. 4.0 |   The Scotsman

  9. 4.0 |   Daily Telegraph

    Business as usual with few new thrills
    Read Review

  10. 4.0 |   The Observer

    These one-time synth-pop pioneers sound lifeless compared with all the 80s-raiding whippersnappers so indebted to them
