This was Erasure’s sixth record, and jumped straight to number 1 upon release in 1994. And yet, the vinyl edition has been long out-of-print! No longer, as Mute have pressed up a new brace of 180g copies of I Say I Say I Say’s majestic synth-pop, presented with the original artwork and packaging.

For all its disco glitter the fifth studio album from Erasure, is a pretty moody affair. A few of the songs deal with relationships that are on the verge of falling apart at the seams: there's the stinging bite of "Love to Hate You," the bitter lyrics of a man betrayed in "Perfect Stranger," and the "you-broke-my-heart" ditty "Waiting for the Day." Musically, it's a bit different from what we've heard before. Producer Martyn Phillips (Jesus Jones) gives the disc an even more electronic feel, with its abundance of synth touches and sonic bleeps.
