Be With You Single/Remixes
True to the Synthpop and New Wave sounds that Erasure fans are accustomed to, Be With You Single/Remixes, by duo Andy Bell and Vince Clarke, offers a nice variety of music for a remix album. The music has steady beats, as with “Be with You Moto Blanco Club mix,” which as the title suggests is something likely to be heard in the clubs. There are also versions of “Be With You” that are a combination of slower and faster beats, creating a connection within each track by using elements to all the versions, while keeping each cut a fresh remix. You never listen to exactly the same song twice – unless of course you hit repeat. A pleasant surprise is “Be with You – Acoustic Version,” which still maintains the English duo’s trademark sound, though stripped down, exposing the vulnerability of the words and the sadness of being separated from the one you love.
Completely different from the “Be With You” tracks is “I Will Never Let You Down.” This is an exclusive B-side which offers a break from the remixes through a song that brings an alternative perspective on love.
Be With You Single/Remixes is like a buffet of music – there is something here for all Electropop lovers and no one will be left unsatisfied.
