Depeche Mode

Always been one of my favorite bands, but their songs are hit or miss. Actually, the segments of their songs are like that. At times they can blow me away with Gahan’s vocals and the layers beneath, and then lose me with a shift into something that’s just not right.

E.g.:

The chorus there is as good as anything DM has done, but the rest of the song is just eh. Still, I’ll take it.

  1. Shake the Disease, Leave in Silence and Flexible are the best early DM songs out there. Everything Counts is good, but Construction Time Again, as an album, is too political and not representative of what DM truly is.
