Absolutely!

Been on repeat all weekend and it's excellent, Their most complete album for ages. :D

Early stand out track is difficult because it really is that good but maybe "Should be higher" edges it. 8)

Depeche Mode have sold over 100 million albums and singles worldwide, making them the most successful electronic band in music history.

Guys you're going to love it - Imagine Violator meets Songs Of Faith and Devotion in a bluesy style with a little bit of Nine Inch Nails.... Pure heaven!

I reccommend the deluxe version with the 4 extra tracks which will probably be B-sides to forthcoming singles but are strong enough to stand next to the others.

Shall be seeing them at the Stadio Olimpico da Roma in the summer :D

Not always my cup of tea, they remind me of my teenage years and this album (had a quick listen) should do well with the 80's revival that is on at the moment with the youth........ gosh if only they knew what it was really like back then.........hold on a mo, it was better than these shity times........ :wink:

I downloaded it a few hours ago and put it on shuffle. I usually like their music, but this album did nothing for me.

Just listening to the re mix song 'The Sun and the Rainfall' :mrgreen:

I remember driving down to Bournemouth in '89 with my best mate and he said wanna listen to this? It was 101.. I said they're a bunch of woofters but i'll give it a listen.

By the time we got there i was hooked and the rest is history. :)

This is worth a look :wink:
