Good to see we're a little more positive about DM than their forum fans are of U2. Were a bit more open-minded. I do like DM. Not sure about their new song 'Wrong'. Cool opening and nice sound. They just say "Wrong" so many times. It makes me want to scream 'Right'.

Actually, I don't like their new single "Wrong". Intro is cool and it's a nice sound and great performance along with U2 on the Berlin Echo awards. But, they just say "Wrong" the whole time. Not much of a chorus. The verses are nice but it gets boring and repetitive. It makes "Boots" sound like the greatest chorus ever written.

Still to have a new U2 and DM album out the same year is a fantastic thing for moi!  ;D

True - indeed the lyrics might as well just be the word "wrong" repeated over and over.

Also it sounds a wee bit too 80s. This is, of course, always a bad thing.

I don't mind Depeche Mode - they have the odd good song - but especially post-Violator they seem to have become a bit limited in terms of mood and tone, from what I've heard of it (admittedly this is mostly singles).

I do, but I hate because I love, love because I care, and care because there's only so many hours of a given day in which you can d**k about on Youtube.

That's just silly.  I mean, Violator was a great album, and I really liked Songs of Faith & Devotion too. (Even though that was a fairly blatant attempt at band "reinvention," a la Achtung-era U2).

But really... are DM still relevant?  I mean, maybe I'm a bit insulated, living in the Southeast U.S. and all, but I'd bet if you conducted a poll most people wouldn't be aware that DM were still making music!

I like both bands. Can't we all just get along?  :D

Boom Cha! is so right! I love both and won't put one against the other. I am very tired of all the
Coldplay stuff too.

i must admit i got all DM albums, but I'm in the procces of selling the lot,
 when i turned 40 i realised ,
theres U2 music then the rest
i only listen to U2
this has changed me as a person completely
for example ,my work colleagues ,say
you seem happier.
even my wife thinks I'm happier.
i am now a U2 fanatic
"let me in the sound" ;)

DM just came out w/their video for WRONG. Got to say I like it. Still not the greatest song but it works with the video or vice vera. It's kind of dark...but what do you expect from them:

I've always liked DM, although I have not bought any of their stuff since Songs Of Faith and Devotion.  I saw them on the Violator tour and they put on a good show for what it was.  My favourite from them however is the album Black Celebration and especially the song But Not Tonight.  I like a lot of their early stuff too, it's just that Black Celebration got me through a relationship when it came out and I was probably the only guy in our small hick town that was listening to the album or let alone knew DM existed. 

Oh man, Now I have to go dig out Black Celebration and listen to it.

Video---O.K.

Song---Not O.K.

Songs of Faith and Devotion, Ultra, and Playing the Angel were good albums.  This song could not be more aptly titled.  Even if you were of the opinon that "Get on Your Boots" is a bad song (and I am not), it blows this nonsense out of the water.
