Depeche Mode is back
Growing up in the 80's-90's Depeche Mode was a huge part of my musical playlist. Before it was stolen, I had every CD including imports that they ever put out. I was a huge fan and tons of other New Wave, Techno, Industrial, etc. bands.
Depeche Mode released Precious, the new single in the UK on the 3rd, and the Playing The Angel album releases on the 18th. Thanks to some of my inside connections I have the entire album and am really enjoying it. It takes me 4 or 5 times through the album before I truly pass judgment and I am not there yet. However, I have a feeling that it will get a thumbs up.
Update: I love the album, it is great. Wow, the lyrics are amazing. There is some major searching, or life change happening within David or Martin. Check out the lyrics here.
