A Feast for the auditory senses,
By A Customer
This review is from: Songs of Faith and Devotion (Audio CD)
I cannot fail but be moved by this album. From the deep dark recesses of Martin Gores mind this musical masterpiece offers an insight into a myriad of sexual and religious contradictions and questions. The stadium sized feel of this album provides a sound which is entirely different from anything depeche have ever done before, whilst somehow retaining the identifying characteristics of this superb band. Walking in my shoes, i feel you, mercy in you are all brilliant tracks, from nowhere condemnation appears, with daves angst ridden vocals providing an almost tangable atmosphere of pain and suffering and, well, condemnation! When you are exhausted by the emotional rollercoaster that you have experienced over the first 5 tracks, in your room vibrates from your speakers. this is the song of the album, the atmosphere created by the drums in this track is beyond words, this is the closest that i have come to having a sexual experience without a woman in the room! One caress, higher love and rush are all fantastic, and in essance, as one reviewer has already said there s not one weak track on this album. If you have the cash spare and require auditory gratification on an alltogether different plane, buy this album.
