 A flawed album redeemed by a worthy package

| | See all DavidSylver's reviews (6)

This beautiful box set edition contains perhaps one of Depeche Mode's most difficult albums which some fans are already writing off as another 'Exciter' whilst others embrace it. And yes some of the darkness and danger of the previous album 'Playing The Angel' and earlier works has been lost. However what DM have displayed in this album is a joy of experimentation and some of the synth sounds truly need to be heard to be believed. If you like your electronics spacey and/or raw you will not be disappointed. Dave's voice has also never sounded so rich nor confident but there is perhaps too much mellowness for this album to rank alongside other DM albums. The DVD that accompanies this box set only has several detailed interviews with the band and Martin L Gore even states he considers the album 'futuristic easy listening'. This is quite apt and perhaps the issue many fans will find is in a lack of edgier material. Only the lounge croon darkness of 'Jezebel' and possibly the electro-glam of 'Corrupt' and 'Wrong' can really hold up to that mantle. Most including myself may find this more mature and mellow DM perhaps a tad too much but that isn't to say this is a bad album; it isn't. It also grows upon the listener with repeated plays as all good albums should. However what the core album lacks in classic Mode is redeemed by the box sets second and third discs not to mention the lengthy dvd and 2 hardback books amongst other collectible items. The second CD contains tracks left off the album proper that perhaps shouldn't have been. Some are far stronger than those found on the main album and 2 in particular are more indictive of DM of old. The third disc containing demos from DM's vast back catalogue is perhaps the most startling inclusion as the tracks show just how different this album is to their older material. However considering the acceptable price of this set the serious fan should not complain too much considering the content. But to a casual fan one would urge caution before purchase.

Just when i thought Depeche Mode counldn't get any better then sounds of the universe comes out. This see's them at their finest and with dave gahan now writing songs as well they have become an even stronger band. This box set is a must for all die hard mode fans as it includes bonus tracks that didn't make it on the cd and demos from far back as music for the masses days.

 grazzi - thanks in maltese to a great depeche mode
