Depeche Mode Playing The Angel

Spent the last week listening to the new album by depeche mode and can I just say..... It blows H.T.D.A.A.B right out of the water.
Instead of repeating a formula and basically regurgitating their whole career they have approached each new album as a fresh new challenge unlike u2.Playing the angel is an inspired collection of songs that sounds like nothing they have previously recorded.I used to love u2, have done since 83 ,but to be honest after many months of trying to love it ,the new album just doesn't cut it with me.I'm sure there are many of you guys out there that know but can't admit that u2 have lost their way over the last decade.I guess they need to go and dream it up again to coin a phrase !!

Did it leak? Where did you get it?

I love this new trend of comparing every album to HTDAAB...

Can't we just appreciate a new album without bashing another?

That being said I find your assement of DM completely off. DM has often gone back to their safe sound, more often than U2.

You should've gone for the hat trick and bashed ATYCLB and Coldplay while you were at it.

Back to the new DM album - where'd you get it? What does it sound like? How are the lyrics? How's Dave's voice this time? Does Martin sing?

no, this is a u2 forum. every non-u2 band we discuss must be compared to u2 regardless of whether the comparrison makes sense. u2 is the highest standard, unless of course you're talking about post-pop u2. then you get points for negativity.

edit: whoops, sorry, didn't realize helloangel actually wanted to keep this discussion on track.

I've heard the new single the other day.
Sounds like something out of Master and Servant or Black Celebration straight up old school synth, I like it!

Where did you get the new DM album or at least listened to it? I've been wanting to hear it for a while now.
