depechemodesoundsoftheuniverse1Together with my ordered U2 album amazon UK also send me the brand new Depeche Mode album called Sounds of the Universe.

Thirteen new songs, which could have been 20 songs as well. In an interview (on the accompanied DVD) Martin Gore tells that they had so many ideas worked out that they had trouble to choose which songs would make the album. And what an album it is. Typical dark Depeche Mode style, rythmic and very strong lyrics. A new masterpiece I think.

depechemodesoundsoftheuniverse2Art direction, photography and cover design are by Anton Corbijn.

The DVD is worthwhile as well. It contains all album tracks in Dolby and DTS 5.1 surround sound, a short film introducing the album by the bandmembers, the video of ‘wrong’ and 3 remixes of 3 tracks.

Score: 9 / 10
