You shall not be disappointed, my friend! Have you bought Playing the Angel yet?

Nope, not yet. I haven't heard a song from it or read any reviews, so I really don't know what to expect. What are your thoughts on it?

Hmmmm.....To be perfectly honest with you I like DM's more upbeat stuff. About half the songs on there are slower, so I haven't listened to them like I should. 1-5 and 11 are the ones I've been listening to over and over. They are definitely darker than thier older stuff. I've heard people mention it sounds a little NIN-ish. I can hear where they would think that, but I don't think so. The guys from DM are happy, NIN guys really aren't. I'm not sure if you can get a sample of the music or anything, but I've got John the Revelator playing on my MySpace profile.

Hey Ess, if you want to try out a sample of some of the songs on their new album, go here:
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000B2YQX4/104-8555319-3515958?v=glance&n=5174&s=music&v=glance

Scroll down a bit and you will see a list of the songs. You can click on each one and listen to a sample.

Ah yes, good old Amazon.

Well, after a brief little sampler of the album, I ran out of my office and jumped into the nearest record store and bought the damn thing.

So far, I'm really impressed with it. It's such a return to form for the Depeche Mode chaps, and I'm particularly loving the electronicly sleazy 'The Sinner In Me'. Kudos has to go to 'Precious' too.

Ess, you are so easily corruptible! Buy me a Corvette!!

I'm glad you like it. You'll have fun at the concert too. You'll have to let me know what you think.

I forgot about Amazon having samples of the songs. Meh, they only play half anyway. I get to a good part and it stops. Duh.
