how can someone be fan of a band if they don't listen to the bands records?

The reason most of us are skipping it, is because we had GoYB on replay since the day it was released, and now we want to experiment with the new material.

It's just because they are a Depeche Mode forum so naturally they are ignorant of the other bands.

I mean if someone were to discuss Avril Lavigne's musical evolution here, people would be so quick to dismiss it simply because they are ignorant of her craft since this is a U2 forum.

Depeche Mode did a hit ballad called "Somebody" sometime in the 80's, and I haven't heard of them since.

Cheers,

J

I like Depeche Mode very much. I have all their albums a few concert videos, etc. Oddly I've never seen them live. But, U2 is ultimately superior IMHO.

As for Avril Latrine...she has craft? what was that annoying boyfriend song she did anyway?

Here is a video of both U2's performance & Depeche Mode's performance at the Berlin Echo Awards just the other night:

The only craft Avril has are her toy boats for playing in the bathtub

Can you really be surprised?

There are "U2 fans" here who "listen" to the whole new record, but skip when the single comes up.

WTF?

I skip the single because it's terrible. I like parts of the album. And before you say anything, I've loved U2 since 1985...

Firstly, let me say i've nothing against Depeche Mode whatsoever, they're a fine band in my opinion and i do have a few of their albums.

But that thread made me laugh, especially the part were a poster says that U2's new single is 'predictable nonsense'...

...of course we all know that Depeche Mode hit the mark with every track they make, none of their tracks was ever 'predictable nonsense'... ::)

Nick Cave said something funny in an interview. Speaking about Johnny Cash's excellent American Recordings LP's he said:

'You know you've made it as an artist when Johnny Cash covers one of your songs'.

He clearly didn't know Cash had covered Personal Jesus. Or Nine Inch Nails for that matter...

I would think U2 and Depeche Mode fans would somewhat have a connection due to both band use of Anton Corbijn.

No - he's just a photographer. And an over rated one at that.

Musically, they are miles apart...

maybe but there was a point when they were moving on trains heading in opposite directions but stopped at the same train station. Zoo station.
