Does anybody actually know more than one song they did? Even people that are really not into DM recognise Enjoy the Silence, Personal Jesus and Precious. U2 has only one well-known song, and that is a ballad(One).

Okay, enough off-topic

Beyond laughable.  Thankfully I wont let a few ignoramuses dilute my appreciation of either U2 or Depeche Mode.

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?

Each to his/her own.

Is this the DM thread on the @U2 forum or the DM forum, separate from us?

It reminds me of the time Simple Minds got it in the neck because they sounded like U2!!....... FFS, I was a fan of both at the time and they never were and will never be alike!

Depeche Mode are trying to cling onto U2 here............ Erasure and The Pet Shop Boys are free lads.......!!

I really like Depeche Mode too, but this is just common sense...U2 is more well-known than DM by a long shot. They're just more mainstream.

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,

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?

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

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...

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'.
Title: Re: Lot of U2 Hate Going On In The Depeche Mode Forum
Post by: Mr. BonorFLYd on February 22, 2009, 06:46:05 PM
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.

Post by: globaljosh on February 23, 2009, 07:52:36 AM
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!

even my wife thinks I'm happier.
i am now a U2 fanatic

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.
