Sounds Of The Universe
For their new album, Depeche Mode said they were using analog synthesizers and other
vintage gear to "conjure up images of the universe and space travel." But the
result sounds like a time machine
back to the Eighties. The pulsing single "Wrong" oozes classic synth-pop angst,
but with Commodore 64-style beats and laser-tag keyboards, ballads like "Peace"
are comically New Romantic, and the dour "Spacewalker" sounds like the score to
Star Trek rewritten by a deeply bummed-out robot. Depeche Mode should be poised for a
comeback, but it's too soon to unpack those black turtlenecks.
