5.0 out of 5 stars Great CD :D, 16 May 2001
This review is from: Exciter (Audio CD)
I think's this DM album is one of their best, up there with Black Celebration, Violator, and Ultra. Distinctly electronic, but with a different feel then the previous album (as usual). I really like the direction Depeche Mode has gone in this album, opting for a gentler approach than normal, but still throwing in a couple hard rock stuff.
The songs on the album are very good and high quality. "Shine" was a very nice surpirse. I enjoyed this ballad very much - the sample on the website doesn't nearly do it justice. The same goes for "I Feel Loved", probably the only pop/rock song on the album. I'd have to say that, so far, my favourite songs on the album are "Shine", "When The Body Speaks", "The Dead Of Night", "Freelove", and "Comatose", while "The Sweetest Condition" and "Breathe" I didn't enjoy as much as the others. I also thought "Dream On" could have used a bit more of a push in it's sound - as it is, it sounds kind of empty, but I still like it very much.
The only disappointments on the album are probably the instrumentals, "Lovetheme" and "Easy Tiger". They're simply too short to have any kind of impact. They start off really well, but then sound as if they get cut off just as they're getting to the good part. I hope the full version of "Easy Tiger" on the "Dream On" single is a little better.
But despite everything, this is a truly amazing album, and recommend everyone to check it out, especially all you closet DM fans out there! Though, I have a feeling that the DM fans from the 80s will like this less so than those of us who became fans in the 90s...:P
