Drifting ~ Recoil
Drifting ~ Recoil
4.0 out of 5 stars Recoil remixed singles, Nov. 11 2013
Although there are only 4 songs on this Maxi single, it is worth a listen, if you like dark and creepy. In true Recoil fashion, the tracks could be straight out of a thriller movie soundtrack. The original Drifting is already a fantastic track, but the Poison Dub mix is pretty spooky, as is Control Freak (Barry Adamson mix). The Shunt remix is pretty good, although I favour the original, personally. Vocals are perfect for the tracks, featuring Siobhan Lynch, Maggie Estep, and Douglas McCarthy.
Music for the Masses--Collector's Edition ~ Depeche Mode
5.0 out of 5 stars The ultimate 80's album, Nov. 11 2013
Depeche Mode at the peak of their game! This is a solid album from beginning to end. Never Let Me Down Again hooks you in Strangelove , I Want You Now, To Have and To Hold, and Behind the Wheel keep you riveted. Truly one of the best albums they made in the 1980's!

As a fan of the band line-up that included Alan Wilder, I bought this album with mixed feelings. It was professed by die-hard DM fans to be a really good album, but I was cautious. After listening, I found myself comparing it to Songs of Faith and Devotion, and trying to hear if it was very different to what Alan Wilder would have put his stamp on. The result? Yes, Ultra is a very good album. Martin Gore's songwriting was spot-on and Dave Gahan's voice stellar. The production does lack some layering and intricacy, but it is still good. The instrumental bits...Uselink and Jazz Thieves, were awkward. However, if you bought Ultra to listen to good Depeche Mode songs, this is a very good album… Read more
