Depeche Mode Go Supernova

Depeche Mode: Sounds Of The Universe, Mute
By SIOBHAN MURPHY - Friday, April 17, 2009

Depeche Mode's 12th studio album bears a suitably bombastic title: nearly 30 years into their career, they're Essex boys gone supernova.

While their longevity, fame and occasional rock pomp bears comparison to U2, Depeche are more interestingly bruised; they've publicly sustained breakdowns, and few artists play the tortured soul with as much panache as frontman Dave Gahan.

Here the trio perform to their strengths; Gahan is deliciously seductive yet foreboding on Corrupt and the single Wrong.

Martin Gore's songwriting and Andy Fletcher's instrumentation are on exquisite, experimental form, whether it's Fragile Tension's vital electro-pop or the grand synth ceremonial of Peace.

Rating: 3/5
