Format: Audio CD
The first time I heard Mesh, on "Fragile", I scoffed at them: "They aren't very original, are they? They sound just like Depeche Mode, and Erasure, and ... and someone else". That third sound must have been Mesh themselves. With their later albums they have shed the borrowed feathers and emerged with their own plumage: "In this Place Forever" went somewhere towards convincing me that the band is, indeed, quite good and not totally derivative. "The Point at Which It Falls Apart" won me over completely.
I wish I could avoid comparing Mesh to Depeche Mode, but I can't. I like the bands for similar reasons: I like their melodies, their sounds, the singers' lovely voices and their lyrics. Both bands have songs about fear: fear of intimacy, fear of betrayal, fear of love. Mesh has shown their mastery of this particular theme with their previous offerings "You Didn't Want Me" and "Trust You". "The Point at Which It Falls Apart" develops the theme further with songs like "It Scares Me" (a suitable theme song for the early stages of a relationship), "The Damage You Do" and "Needle in a Bruise".
Ever single track on this album has something to offer, from the immediate appeal of "My Defender" to the heart-rendering sadness of "My Saddest Day". The lyrics to many of the songs are petulant and resentful. If petulance can be refreshing, then this is. It is an honest, open and universal resentment, expressed to great effect in "People Like Me with This Gun". The voice that speaks to us here is deeply insulted by the world, tired of being invisible: "I could die and who would even know... but I can make you look with this gun, so maybe I'm not like everyone".

The "Point At Which It Falls Apart" is an excellent CD, containing the singles People Like me, It Scares Me and Not Prepared. It is a shame that their music is more appreciated in Germany rather than their home country. If you like new synthpop you'll love this. In relation to the review above, Mike is refering to the wrong CD I'm afraid and the tracks he mentions come from Mesh's latest CD "Who Watches Over Me?".

An album like this takes some listening to. There are the instant, catchy tunes that Mesh are so good at (Friends like these, firefly) and there are 'growers' too. This is a well-crafted album, proving that Mesh are up there above most other electronic bands.
If you have never heard of them before, the most obvious comparison is late Depeche Mode, but that is only in the loosest sense. They have their own style, and that style is great!
Buy it.

EXCELLENT 27 Nov. 2000
By Barbara S Schulke - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
THIS CD IS AWESOME.. one of the best new bands around. A must for anyone that misses the wonderful new wave / goth music of the 80's... I don't know why its not more popular in the states. EVERY TRACk is worth listening too. a must have for a depeche or new order fan.

Synth-pop? 20 July 2001
By "skulliest" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Many others have described this as synth-pop, but I personally would keep this away from any pop music references. While the influences from fellow U.K.'er's Depeche Mode are hard to ignore, Mesh has a much more sinister side to them than Martin, Dave and Andy do.
Like such D.M. releases as Songs Of Faith And Devotion, Ultra and Violator, there are some seriously dark overtones on The Point At Which It Falls Apart. As well, the lyrics are sung with such an outpouring of emotion that there is an instant connection with the singer. Both bands are predominantly synth based but, where they become noticably different is that Mesh has a more industrial sound to them. Where Depeche Mode generally stays away from the heavy guitars, Mesh embraces them like a twisted BDSM session.
Purely synth based songs like "People Like Me (With This Gun)" are disturbingly creepy while "The Damage You Do" is an emotion fueled masterpiece. My personal favorite, "Needle In A Bruise", sounds like it could have been taken straight from Ultra, up until the powerful chorus layered with some heavy industrial guitars.
In general, this is a dark release with a lot of great music on it. Even though at times it is quite a similar style to Depeche Mode, Mesh stands on its own. It is apparent with Mesh's appearance and rise in the music industry that Depeche Mode's war for public acceptance of the synth as a form of creating music has not gone unnoticed.

Welcoming Mesh to the US 17 Nov. 2000
By Don Williams - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
It's about time this album got released in the states. Take advantage of the great domestic price and sample this excellent CD. These guys have been making great music over the past few years and this is their maturest album yet. Depeche Mode fans will dig this album, Nine Inch Nails fans will dig this album, or if you are just a music fan in general, then you will dig this album also. Stand-out songs; It Scares Me, Not Prepared, Damage You Do, My Saddest Day (reminiscent of DM's Blasphemous Rumours).

Good stuff ... 12 April 2006
By Moskovich Gil - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is a more mature album than their previous one (in this place forever - which was also great) , and it takes a little longer to understand the evolution in sound , and adapt to their new style. this one contains much more guitars and reminds me of

depeche mode "ultra" album ( and that is great compliment ). this is recommended not only for synthpop fans , but to fans of good music in general. Standouts here include "My defender","Not prepared","Needle in a bruise" and "It scared me".

More Mesh! More! 8 Dec. 2000
By Megan Carney Reed - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is an excellent cd, as are most works of Mesh. I only have given it 4 stars, because I do not believe that it is their best work, and several songs on this album leave a little to be desired. To really enjoy mesh, I would suggest trying to find In This Place Forever or Fragmente... both of which I would give a solid 5 stars... and then this album. Mesh can be hard to come by in the states, though... so grab what you can get!
