The New Depeche Mode far better than No line on the Horizon
« on: April 02, 2009, 09:59:52 AM »
How come I like the new mode far more better than the latest U2? When No line came out I liked some songs on it but most were the same old.  But now listening to the new Depeche Mode I have to say the delivered more than U2.
Sounds of Universe beats U2's No line easily.

I have not heard the DM album. But if "Wrong" is any indication, then U2 has nothing to worry about.

Yeah since "Get on your boots" was such a great mindblowing single. wrong kicks Boots's ass.

The videos are on par with each other.  But as far as the song goes, Dm couldn't have said it better.

"WRONG!"

heard it. its an ok album. nothing special really, sounds like music for the masses era with some 80's synth but freshened up today.

i actually like WRONG its the rest of the album which lacks for me.

3 out of 5

I have a friend who is a die-hard DM fan - and he LOVES GOYB. He much prefers it over the new DM.
Thought that would be interesting to share ...

They are both great. DM did deliver this time around. I've been a huge fan of both bands for a long time now. U2 has been much more consistent IMHO. That said, this is DM's strongest album since their last masterpiece, Songs of Faith & Devotion. The fact that they can make an album this good without having one of their key members (Alan Wilder) is pretty amazing.

That said, I still don't think it's better than U2's NLOTH. It's just that I didn't expect Depeche's album to be as good as it is. One of the best songs is 'Come Back' but unfortunately it seems that DM isn't choosing the live studio version that has a Beatles-esque sound. If you've seen them perform it in the youtube clip it's extraordinary and emotional. Instead it seems they went with a more shoegaze rendition which is cool but doesn't have an emotional impact IMO.

I love both of these bands!  :D

every album since Music for the Masses (except Exciter) has grabbed my interest in one way or another. Violator, Songs of Faith and Devotion, and Ultra are pretty damn good albums. Despite the mess of "Wrong", I'm sure I'll pick up the new one.
