Mesh better than Depeche Mode? Yes!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: An Alternative Solution (Audio CD)
This review is a bit of a cheat as I've only just ordered this album and haven't yet listened to it....but if published, I hope to spread the word about Mesh with this review. Essentially, if you think Depeche Mode are the greatest band ever, you are almost right...because you haven't heard Mesh. More innovative, dancier, better songwriting, ridiculously consistent quality from album to album over twenty years or so. Each album shows progression and increasing maturity, and it may well be the biggest musical injustice of all time that they are so little known. If this lot had started in the early 80's rather than early 90's, they'd be huge. Many years ago after a gig in Bristol when they were still a three piece, they were happy to chat about the technicalities of using technology live and showed me and a mate their sampling and synth set-up. Nice chaps too. Give Mesh a listen if you like DM. You won't regret it. Read the other reviews too, I'm not the only one with this opinion.
