One thought on “Album Streams: Depeche Mode, Jane's, Sinead, more”

  1. Hmmmm….

    Another confounding DM album. After only one listen I’m digging the retro electronic sound, which seems to alude to the era when the band originally formed. But I’m not loving any of the tracks yet.

    What made DM great in their heyday was that they were a really good Dance/Pop band. After “Violator” that strain in their music evaporated. I don’t know if it’s just Martin Gore aging into a geezer or the departure of Alan Wilder, but since the mid 90s their ‘albums’ have sounded a lot more like Gore playing around with a shit-load of equipment and Dave singing over the end result.

    Where’s this decades “Every Counts” or “Strangelove?” Shit I’d even take “Policy of Truth” at this point….and I didn’t much care for “Song’s of Faith and Devotion.”

    I’ll have to listen to this one again, but at the outset I’m not groovin’ to it. It’s too ambient. I can’t imagine sitting through a live version of this album. Ugh!
