Product Description

Product Description

Contains "It's No Good."

Amazon.ca

In the bestselling DM canon, this is one of their very best--mature, Euro-elegant, smartly contemporary (thanks to producer Tim "Bomb the Bass" Simenon), honest ("Insight"), edgy ("Barrel of a Gun"), and armed with at least one killer single in "It's No Good." --Jeff Bateman

Ok, I have been sitting here reading some of the 3 stars and under reviews for the "Ultra" album. This is what I have to say. Depeche Mode really carries us all do different levels. What touchs one may not touch another.
But L@@K they take us from:
"Everything Counts" to "Leave in silence"
"People are People" to "Blasphemous rumors"
"Somebody" to "Master and Servant"
"But not tonight" (one of my fav's) to "Black celebration"
"STRIPPED" to "Fly on the windscreen"
"Strange love" to "Never let me down again"
"Enjoy the silence" to "Personal Jesus"
"I feel you" to "One Caress"
"Barrel of a gun" to "Home".
I may have gotten a little out of order, but if I am not mistaken that is a pretty broad range of tunes, if you consider them for what they are. Even with what some call Depeche Mode's matured years they still have sweet and sour in there later albums! I say without a doubt they (DM) has touched my life in so many positive ways. Because I am on a roll...I will mention that one of my favorite ranking songs by DM is "Here is the House"! My least favorite album is Music for the Masses. My favorite albums are Black Celebration, Songs of Faith and Devotion, A Broken Frame (lol, yes I know it does not get high ratings) and 101 which is a completely awesome LIVE album. If you couldn't be at that concert it is the second best thing. I love songs from the Violater album but it would not be my favorite as with many others. You see DM hit the main stream when Enjoy the Silence hit the charts.

First of all, I am a very avid fan of both Depeche Mode and Alan Wilder (as in his work both in DM and Recoil), so do not make the assumption that I am not aware of Wilder's contributions to DM's repertoire in the past. I find him to be an impressive musical talent without whom DM probably could not have survived. But now both Wilder and the band have progressed to the point where they can now do things beyond anything they did together. Second of all, this album is perhaps the most musically mature DM have ever been, even including their previous two albums "Violator" and "Songs of Faith and Devotion." "Ultra" is the best album DM have ever produced. Between Martin Gore's intelligent and thoughtful songwriting, and David Gahan's soulful vocals (with some help from Martin on a few songs), this collection of songs is the album that got me into Depeche Mode and to this day remains my favorite.
-"Barrel of a Gun": The opening track is perhaps the most edgy, and ranks up there with songs like "I Feel You," and "Rush." The guitars are very raw and the rhythm is very pulsing. This song is the kind of song to bang your head to in a goth club. The vocals punchy and aggressive, this is one of DM's best singles.
-"The Love Thieves": Now this is a very sad and kinda jazzy song. It was featured in the TV show "La Femme Nikita" and was used very expertly to portray a brooding character. Very appropriate, and the song just fits those moods of sad solitude. The kind of song to listen to after a bitter breakup. It's sadness is the type that just might uplift your spirits...
-"Home": Beautiful is all I have to say about this song.

Though originally in the same mould as Duran Duran and a-ha, Depeche Mode has increasingly become more of the thinking person's Europop group. With _Ultra_, the group comes close to perfecting their studio-bound craft. If you own no other bit of Europop, make this the one.
This album takes everything that is maligned about Europop (too-clever studio manipulations, annoyingly bland loops, aural cacophony, lyrics that rhyme more than inform) and finds virtue rather than vice. _Ultra_ shows the vast, textural potential of the genre. These heavily produced tracks could never satisfactorily be performed live, but then we don't want them to be. Studio techniques used here evoke the songs' dark lyrical moods, leaving us to actually enjoy the music for its (gasp!) own merit. The lyrics have clearly been arrived at through life experience, and the genre through which they're told powerfully enhances their meaning. Consequently, _Ultra_ may be one of the few albums able to make Europop rise above itself.

If there was ever a soundtrack released to accompany David Gahan's fall into the abyss and subsequent slow recovery, this is it. Tracks like 'Barrel of a Gun', 'Useless', 'Sister of Night' and 'The Bottom Line' effectively narrate Gahan's trials and tribulations in the last 2 years. Although the stadium-sized rock loops of SOngs of Faith and Devotion have been eschewed for simpler synth patterns, this is also Depeche Mode's most musically-varied album , with touches of blues, country, gospel, industrial and trip-hop worked carefully into the seam of their musical essence. Getting Tim Simenon in seems to have switched the band to a new direction, the result being a leaner and more austere sound. Could've been better without the inclusions of the space-wasting instrumentals though. 'Ultra' stops short of being a definitive Depeche Mode record, but it works well as a transitory album from the last few albums to future projects.
