Past Quick Poll Results
|Total votes: 91|
|I love it||71%|
|I dislike it||6%|
That's a pretty convincing thumbs up for the artwork of the latest Erasure album World Be Gone and in my view it's well deserved. And with only 6% stating they dislike the artwork, this might go down as one of the most popular sleeves in many a year.

Generally, the From Moscow To Mars box set was well received, but it wasn't an overwhelmingly positive reception with a quarter of fans expressing disappointment at the contents. It's not without its flaws but overall I feel the box set is a worthwhile purchase.

|All Of Them||22%|
|Some Of Them||8%|
|None Of Them||70%|
I always expected the vinyl re-issues to have a niche appeal (so much so this poll received a very low number of votes) but even I was surprised that 70% of respondents haven't bought a single one of them. Let's hope that the From Moscow To Mars box set fares better!

|Who Needs Love (Like That) – Hamburg Mix||45%|
|Oh L'amour – August Mix||21%|
|Always – 2009 Mix||22%|
With the introduction of the 2015 mix of Sometimes it was time to run this poll again with the new addition... and it made no difference at all to the outcome! The Hamburg Mix of Who Needs Love (Like That) rightfully won by a mile with almost half the total votes, with Sometimes 2015 coming in a distant last.

|Vince with Jean-Michel Jarre||72%|
|Andy with Dave Audé||28%|
A pretty comprehensive victory for Vince teaming up with French electro legend Jean-Michel Jarre, with nearly three-quarters of the vote secured. Jarre's Electronica – 1 The Time Machine album featured two collaborations with Vince, whilst at the time of writing (Winter 2015) we are still awaiting the second single from Andy with Dave Audé (let alone a whole album)...

|DVD Of Unreleased Concerts||37%|
|Singles Box Set 5 & 6||8%|
Close fought for a while, but the option of having previously unreleased concerts on DVD proved too tempting for the majority. I'm not sure how many of these concerts exist in the Mute Vault (MK Bowl, Cowboy Concerts, Violet Flame Tour perhaps?) but it would be nice to see these released at some point in the future. The B-Sides album is also a popular choice and one that has been mentioned for many years now. Maybe one day it'll see the light of day...

|Be With You||11%|
|Bells Of Love (Isabelle's Of Love)||10%|
|Dead Of Night||26%|
With such a high calibre of songs in this category, I was expecting things to be a little closer but in the end only two songs ever looked like winning. Sunday Girl initially took the lead but eventually Dead Of Night come out as the clear winner. I'm a bit surprised that Solsbury Hill got so few votes - I thought it was more popular than that.
