This is th CD+DVD version. Get it if you can its well worth it; Live tracks, bonus tracks, Videos + interview. A must for all Mesh fans.

Mesh have once again produced an excellent album which should be in everyone's collection. This is shere class and very refined indeed. Mesh are often compared to Depeche Mode, but there is one difference - MESH are better!!

If you haven't done so already, buy this album and then buy the rest of them. And play them loud!!

Format: Audio CD
Well, after years of waiting (silence since 2002's Who Watches Over Me) we finally have another studio album from Bristol 3-piece electro combo Mesh. Established fans of their previous industrial/synth sound (think Depeche Mode/Nine Inch Nails) may be surprised how upfront the guitar is on this new outing. But the majority of the songs are musically strong and Mark Hocking's simple but clever lyrics hook you surprisingly quickly.

The album opens with a bang as Open Up The Ground's guitar riff and positively trancey synths hint at the joys to come. Next comes What Are You Scared Of? with an incessant piano motif remeniscent of the Wim Mertens/Cafe del Mar Close Cover track. 3rd is the album's strongest song Step By Step which builds slowly from a quiet verse to a massive singalong anthemic chorus which will probably be amazing live.

In my opinion, most of the tracks are consistently good. The only turkey being My Hands Are Tied. What on earth is a cheesy German/Euro Disco number doing on a quality album like this? Fortunately, the killer single Crash follows and all is forgiven as the driving synths and ethereal melancholy vocal take us back to familiar and far superior territory.

In summation, very nearly the stellar album I longed for. A must have for existing fans and worth a gander if you like NIN or DM!

Celebration time 8 May 2006
By Ethan Straffin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Well, just for the record, I consider Mesh to be the most talented purveyors of dark synthpop on the planet at the moment. So, it probably wouldn't come as much of a surprise to anyone that I like this album. A lot. Is it as good as "Who Watches Over Me," or possibly even better? I'm not prepared to answer that one just yet, so I'll just take the easy way out and recommend buying both. Both albums are at least 2/3 brilliant, with a few lesser moments toward the center. Going track by track:

1. Open Up the Ground -- This is the first of the album's three big dancefloor tracks, and it's a perfect opener.

2. What Are You Scared Of? -- One of my favorites. It's got a dangerous groove, nice use of piano in the verse and guitar in the chorus, and one of the album's better lyrical hooks ("Only you can press that button").

3. Step By Step -- The second dance track. I'm given to believe that it will be the second single, and if it gets enough of a push, it could be a monster. Fingers crossed.

4. No Place Like Home -- The first of three downtempo songs, and easily the most stunning. It's reminiscent of "Leave You Nothing" from WWOM both musically and lyrically. Addressed to a son or daughter with an abusive (and murderous?) stepfather, it manages to be simultaneously heartbreaking, haunting, and hopeful. Very Depechey, with some strong piano work.

5. Petrified -- My feeling about this one is that, as the longest song on the album, it needed a few more chord changes.

6. Rest in Pieces -- And now we have the shortest song (apart from the hidden one at the end, which I won't otherwise spoil). It's not bad, though there are a few uncharacteristic clunkers in the lyrics, of which the bad-goth-poem title pun is only the most noticeable.

7. This Is What You Wanted -- The most guitar-driven song on the album. It reminds me a bit of "Razorwire" from WWOM, but it's considerably better.

8. Room With a View -- From what I've been reading in the fora on Mesh's official site, people seem to either like this one a lot or not much at all. I must admit that I fall into the latter camp. It's just too consistently minor-key and dirgelike for my taste.

9. My Hands Are Tied -- From the most minor-key song to the most major-key song. While the beat and the unexpected "wah-wah" guitar cause the verse to veer strangely close to midtempo disco territory, all is forgiven once the chorus kicks in. I can't get the darn thing out of my head.

10. Crash -- This is the lead single, and a fine choice it was. It's very catchy and very danceable. If you like it, I recommend the "Alien Six Kerosene Remix" on the single, which I like even more. (The single also features a great B-side in "Soul," which I think they should have swapped with "Rest in Pieces.")

11. Can You Mend Hearts? -- Mesh tend to have a way with big emotional midtempo closers. (See "The Trouble We're In" from WWOM and "Not Prepared" from "The Point at Which it Falls Apart," of which this one is strongly reminiscent in one particular passage.) This is a fine addition to the canon.

All in all, it's a terrific album. If you can, consider getting the limited edition with the DVD. (I posted this same review at the page for that product, but with an additional paragraph that discusses the DVD.)

It really doesn't get any better than this! 4 May 2007
By Wayneman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Mesh has been one of my top two favorite bands over the last ten years(the other being De/Vision), and with 'We Collide', they certianly have outdone themselves.

For a band who has created such hauntingly beautiful electronic music for over a decade, they amazingly continue to ascend. 'We Collide'... well, I just can't find any flaws.

It is also very difficult for me to choose may favorite tracks, because they all effect me in different ways at different times.

"Crash" is one of their best dancefloor songs ever, while striking a serious emotional chord at the same time. Seriously, how many club-friendly songs have the ability to do that?

"Petrified" is simply incredible. The programming is crisp and trance-inducing, while the lyrics possess depth rarely heard in this genre.

I won't describe all the tracks in this sort of detail, but I will say this: this band deserves much more than it gets in terms of popularity, especially here in the U.S.

True artists have the ability to create a thing of beauty, while at the same time provoke, and spur their observers to deep reflection.

Mesh are true artists in every sense of the word, especially with a masterpiece like 'We Collide'. I couldn't recommend it enough.

All in all, it's a terrific album. The DVD on the limited edition adds a making-of featurette whose highlights include some nifty instrumental versions in the background. The music videos are low-budget but enjoyable. The live footage is a treat for those of us who are stuck on the wrong continent when it comes to catching an actual Mesh concert -- even if singer Mark can't seem to find the melody in the verse of "From This Height" for the life of him. Finally, while the demos are nowhere near as good as the final products, it's interesting to hear how the songs evolved. U.S. purchasers should be aware that the DVD is region-coded and in PAL format, so you'll need the right hardware and/or software to access it.

Mesh never fails to WOW!!! 27 April 2006
By I Heart Art - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This new album was well worth the wait! Mesh is one of my favorite bands and they never fail to wow me. I love this CD. The music is catchy enough that you love it right away, though it only gets better with each listen. In fact, I like this better than their last effort. It has a little more energy and grit. The songs are punchy and diverse, heartfelt and thought-provoking. My favorites are "Open Up the Ground", "What Are You Scared Of?", "Step by Step", "No Place Like Home", "My Hands Are Tied" and "Crash". If you love Mesh, synthpop, Depeche Mode, Nine Inch Nails or just plain good music, get this album!

Importing Audio Diamonds 9 July 2007
By TorridlyBoredShopper - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Mesh has been something of an oddity in the EBM arena because they have never sacrificed the thing they do best, quality vocals and testaments to the art of feeling, for anything happening in the moment. They skipped the voxing craze when it swept the dancefloors, stayed with their own sound when BPMs swept up everyone, and this really shines in the things they create now. This seems to be the one testament that shows how influenced Mesh was by Depeche Mode - when you listen to album after album you can hear the sound maturing and yet sticking to a something that resembles what Depeche Mode did when they were hitting on all cylinders. There is also a formula of sorts to what they try to accomplish, with a variety of song types coming out BUT the best work revolving around love/the loss therein.

One of the more confusing things about this album was the fact that it was released as an import but that it wasn't picked up by Metropolis. That explains the price on it, too, and might make some people leery when it comes to buying. Metropolis has been attempting a facelift of sorts, however, and people worrying about what they are getting shouldn't be bothered by this change because it didn't hurt the quality of the album or the work produced. If you listen to the style echoed in the beauty of Track 2 (No Place like Home), you can tell that this is the Mesh you've grown to love and that the album will not disappoint. More importantly, this is the same Mesh with a little more maturity added into the fray, and that echoes in the diversity of an album that you really don't tire of easily.

If this is your first time trying out Mesh, the best overall album to try via pricing has to be Who Watches Over Me. You'll enjoy the album and the introduction of this one as well so you'll have two quality albums to listen to, and having an introductory album of that quality isn't a bad decision at all. You can actually look up the video for the single Crash on this album if you are so inclined as well, although video formats aren't always indicative of the audio experience. If you're already a fan of Mesh and have yet to pick up We Collide, check out Step by Step, the single Crash, or No Place like Home and push your fears aside.
I highly recommend this album highly to anyone who enjoys great vocals, a nice beat, and feelings that really seem genuine when tasted via playback.
