Well at least he apologizes... unlike MORRISSEY the pompous diva.


I really hope Dave gets better soon.. sounds a little scary and I hope he makes a full recovery.

I cant believe how much this album has grown on me. I didn't like it much after the first couple listens, but now I would say its a better album from start to finish than Playing The Angel.

there's no need to be nervous, they are just rumours.

they found a tumor in his bladder but he should be fine. He will be onstage again in Leipzig on the 8th of June. Get well Dave, you rule!

Alright, I've been reading through this thread for opinions on the new album and they seem to be overall positive despite a few negative ones. I was busy with stuff in my personal life and consequently missed all the release hype, leaks etc. Before jumping to buy it, I only have one question: Is it better and more consistent than Playing The Angel? Initially I liked that album but over time it has become a very mixed bag for me with mediocre stuff like Macro, Damaged People, Lilian and Darkest Star. Come to think of it, it is so top heavy! How is this one in comparison? Watched the Wrong video only once and though the song did not stick in my head, I'm secretly hoping that this album is dark, heavy and full of bass-heavy mechanized beats like Ultra.

I would say that the cynicism in many of the lyrics is masked by upbeat rhythms and arrangements - "Fragile Tension" is a perfect example. The music itself is still textured but not nearly as dense as Ultra; many reviewers have astutely compared the sonic structure to their earlier work, especially the early singles. In my personal opinion it is their most consistent album since Violator, and certainly Dave's finest vocal album. His vocals imbue every song with a distinct character and interpretation of the lyrics. All things considered I would highly recommend it - it is the finest album I have yet heard this year.

On a related note, I was rather disgusted by the comments on the Rolling Stone article about Dave's surgery. The man just underwent a major operation and the "fans" are moaning that the band will not reimburse their travel costs to the canceled shows. The self-absorption is unbelievable.
