Love depeche mode, quite like the new single.
wouldn't say they were the best british group by a mile :p but then i guess that's opinion.
are they not a huge though? didn't think they were unrecognised, not seen them live but i've seen a couple of videos on youtube and they play to massive audiences :eek:

starfoxxx 22-03-2013 11:51

anyone heard their new album, is it any good? :)

willowfan 22-03-2013 12:05

DM are huge practically everywhere but the UK, where for some reason they can't shake off their early 80's electropop beginnings.

They are brilliant live, Dave Gahan really comes alive in front of an audience.

Platinum_Rose 22-03-2013 17:10

Have said this many times but love DM, my favourite band :D

shrek 22-03-2013 19:21

New album is great they were brilliant last week live on David Letterman show they did a mini concerts its available on youtube

They are well under rated in UK but big in many other countries including US.

RetroMusicFan 22-03-2013 19:49

Love DM, their new song is great, looking forward to the album.

I absolutely adore Depeche Mode! :D

I've been avoiding videos and the leak of the new album as I want to enjoy it in CD quality when it finally arrives from Amazon as I pre-ordered it at the start of the month.

I'm still keeping my fingers crossed for a Dublin date on their upcoming tour as the last 2 times they performed over here they were AMAZING!!!!

I've heard some of the new album and from what I've heard it's much more memorable than anything off their last album. Not quite the pop perfection that was Violator but the songs I've heard so far are as emotive of that album as anything they've put out since then.

Best British group by a mile - No they're not...
Best live band by a mile - No they're not...
Criminally unrecognised for their achievements for over 30 years - Probably.


That is all.

But that's not fact, it's just your opinion!

I could list hundreds of bands that I would put ahead of them... biggest one of them all, The Beatles, being just one of them.


"Best British group by a mile"

Nonsense.

I'm definitely a fan! When is the album officially released? Is there anywhere that I can stream it or hear clips?

RetroMusicFan 22-03-2013 23:04

This Monday, apparently!

starfoxxx 23-03-2013 03:32

i love playing the angel, music for the masses and ultra. anyone else like these?

i actually prefer those three to violator :eek:

Ian Aberdon 23-03-2013 09:59

Love the Mode. Thing is , the darker they got, the more I loved them! :D

Although it did coincide with Dave's troubles.

rbautz 23-03-2013 11:42

tangsman 23-03-2013 14:17

Gave up with DM after Violator.
Last single was awful.

Appearing on Wetten Das? tonight at 7.15PM (GMT)

shrek 23-03-2013 15:05

The new album is brilliant still very electronic with a hint of blues

Favourite tracks of mine are

Heaven
Angel
Soothe my soul
welcome to my world
Should be higher
Soft touch/raw nerve
All that is mine
Broken

dumpty2 24-03-2013 14:47

Just heard Delta Machine the new album.

Absolutely fantastic.

Aerick 24-03-2013 22:22

I see the German audience of today has a little more energy than 30 years ago, lol

all joking aside, DM has been a part of my life since Speak & Spell and A Broken Frame way back in 1981 and was very influential to me in growing up.

Can't say I've followed or have been massively excited by much they've done in the past 10 years ("Precious" in 2005 may have been the last song I've enjoyed), but I will always consider them to be one of my top 5 bands/groups ever.

Glen_Houston 24-03-2013 23:56

Delta Machine is a decent album.. Sooth My Soul will be an instant Depeche Classic up there with ETS and PJ..

cant wait to see them in london :)

Defo best live band.
