New Depeche Mode Clips from the Letterman Performances









Not sold on what I've heard of the new album.  What do you think?

I liked the new songs, they sound more rocky mainly because of the live setup but I expect them to be a lot more complex and electronic on the album. Very bluesy indeed, but they seem to have embraced Blues for quite a while now. What didn't you like particularly?

The songs are definitely reflecting a more Songs Of Faith & Devotion direction with the more rock inspired sounds. I like it, although I do feel the synths are kind of underwhelming but maybe they are more prominate on the album recordings.

Was that Lars Ulrich on drums?

Eh, I just don't find the songs memorable at all... the songwriting seems lazy to me and the songs sound unfinished. I'll reserve judgement until the album is out, but this may be the first DM album I don't buy (wouldn't have bought Exciter if I had heard it beforehand either).

Terrible. Boring new songs. Trying too hard and sputtering in the process... Listen to those bland lyrics he's crooning, and the dull music behind it... yeesh. Not buying it.
