RAISE YOUR GLASSES "THE MODE" ARE BACK., 20 Oct. 2005
I have been a life long fan of "THE MODE" from my teenage years,what with the advent of the synthesizer and the ground breaking sounds they produce.
Here we have Depeche mode a band that have stood the test of time and with this album still prove to do so.Their music still as popular as ever.
Like all "MODE" fans I wait with anticipation when new material is released and I think this was worth that wait.The Album starts with the track "Pain that I am used to" which is a good excellent track then moves on to "john the revelator" which is one of my favourites Gahans vocals are superb as always.Apart from "Precious" which is very commercial,Other tracks that stand out are tracks:4,7,8+11 with only track 6 disappointing. On the whole this Album suceeds where Exciter bitterly disappointed and is well worth the investment.Welcome back "Depeche Mode"
