Gahan can do it.,
This review is from: Paper Monsters (Ltd. ed.) (Audio CD)
I bought this last night. Being a fan of Depeche Mode something i felt a little obliged to do. I didn't expect to actually like this album but my expectations were SO wrong!
I tucked my walkman into my pocket, set my earphones and off i went for a midnight walk. I've now listened to the album 3 times over and it's not even 24 hours after buying it!
Gahan really can do it without Depeche Mode, though Mode it may not be, Gahans voice cannot be mistaken for another. It's pretty obvious that he's drawn on personal experience for his lyrics and that adds to the way in which the songs draw you in.
Well done Dave!
