Considering that Martin Gore is a multi-instrumentalist and Billy Corgan-level control freak, I'd be highly doubtful of that.

This is suppose to be ironic right? This is DM's most derivative album yet, it's a cover album of their former selves.

Half the songs on Playing The Angel are trashable. Can't say that about any U2 album.

I agree. I think Playing the Angel sucks. And the tour in support of it lacks any power behind it..

I'm going to guess that this is the first Depeche Mode album you've ever heard. Either that or you have the worst musical taste in history. This is FAR from Depeche Mode's best album, they've put out a lot better than this.

Watch it!

You're coming dangerously close to having "editor in chief" come in and accuse you of being "abrasive"!



Er, or having the discussion locked down altogether!



Seriously though, I loved DM back in the day, but, unlike U2, I think they're "spent".

DONE.

Washed up.

Shot their creative load.

Their new album could be great but my gut feeling tells me it's probably not.

Playing the Angels: I really like it! Not Violator by any means, but still a very good record. Great live show in support of the album too, at least the one I saw in early November.

ok... well, I liked some of the album myself, but the only reason I said what I did was because a DM fan who didn't like the album said this on another forum...



Martin Gore is a great songwriter and singer, but he sucks on keys too. Depeche Mode has become a flippping joke. Here is a keyboard based band, and not one official band member can even properly play keys. They have to hire side guys live, and look on the album credits. 100 producers, and "extra' keys by so and so.

.....

When they were recording "Exciter", I have interviews where Martin says he would phone up the studio to "ask how the record was going". Seriously. Bjork's producer literally worked it all out, and the band would phone in WHILE IN OTHER COUNTRIES to see how "their" album was going!
