I thought maybe you needed a music break, so I dug up a little Depeche Mode. I have always been into their music, since the very beginning. But it wasn’t until the live concert album 101, that I officially became a Mode Monkie. That album seem to speak volumes about my own life. Every song seem to touch on a subject which I myself was struggling with. I was in my mid teens and still figuring out what the hell this world was all about. Who is this god everyone seems to blindly believe in and if he is so good, why is our world so screwed up? This is the same question the song Blasphemous Rumours had the courage to ask about.
It’s amazing after all these years, they are still cranking out powerful music. Their latest release is called Sounds of the Universe. They decided to sell the album before they even finished it on Apples iTunes. If you purchased it in advance, you actually got two albums, with songs, remixes and videos. The cool part was, as they finished something you instantly got it. You didn’t have to wait until some official release date when everything was done. After the official release date, all the extra’s disappeared. If you waited to long, you lost out. I guess that was their way of rewarding the devoted fans. People who trust them and actually paid in advance. I am glad I was one of the devoted. I have an extra 10 songs / remixes and behind the scene videos of them making the album. Pretty cool, don’t you think?
I posted a live performance video below for the first single called Wrong. After the jump I posted several more classics. Now click play and get your mode on!
