This is not a full review of the new Depeche Mode album "Sounds of the Universe." I must say that the track "Peace" has blown me over. Big time!
I heard the album today and in short I will say that it is analog heavy. They weren't kidding bout using a lot of vintage synths. The intro to "In Chains" says it all.
But "Peace" Oh man - I just love it. Somewhere out there Phillip Oakey is screaming "That's MY song." Just imagine Phil singing this and think of the pre-Dare Human League albums and you'd know what I mean. I daresay that this track borrows a lot from early Human League.
I'm staying away from anything YouTube related to DM or any review of any of their shows. I don't want any spoilers. And August is so far away!
I’m leaving anger in the past
With all the shadows that it caused
There is radar in my heart
I should have trusted from the start
