||BEST DM ALBUM, ever!|
Yup, thats right, SOTU is the best DM record ever. The album is a beast! a silent killer that grows on you.
By uncle solid (lolville)
||One of the best albums of 2009|
Ok, let's backtrack a bit. Depeche Mode was and always will be considered an 80's synth act. Over the years their sound has evolved into something that so many other bands attempt to duplicate.

||Another Excellent Album from Depeche Mode|
I bought this album the first day it came out and been listening to it ever since.... I have known about Depeche Mode since the 1980's, but just a few years ago bought their greatest hits and "Playing the Angel", both GREAT albums....

||Glad DM is still around|
I prefer the more edgy and progressive dance songs so most of SOTU just doesn't quite do it for me. However, four songs are exactly what I was hoping from DM.

With Teeth CD (2005)
Sounds of the Universe album for sale DualDisc content includes both DVD-A & 5.1 surround sound mixes of the album.
Over the course of his musical career, Trent Reznor has managed to deliver a full-length studio album about every five years. Although he's a bit late with 2005's WITH TEETH (following 1999's THE FRAGILE), listeners are rewarded with Nine Inch Nails' most streamlined and straightforward record since PRETTY HATE MACHINE. Here Reznor cuts back on programming and synthesizers, opting for heavy use of guitars, bass, and--surprisingly--piano and live drums. In fact, the album's secret weapon is drummer Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters, Nirvana), whose thunderous percussive style gives certain songs--most notably the frenetic "You Know What You Are?"--added weight and a welcome no-frills rock edge. Though the techno/industrial element of Reznor's music has been played down, his lyrics are typically angst-ridden, with dramatic tales of isolation, deception, loss, and love gone wrong. More than 15 years after his debut, Reznor is as tormented as ever, and Nine Inch Nails fans wouldn't have it any other way.

Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me CDs (1987)
||Bonus Tracks; Remastered; Deluxe Edition
Sounds of the Universe CD music This hefty double album often sounds more like a compilation than a coherent whole, with musical ideas bouncing frantically back and forth. Nevertheless, in typical Cure style, KISS ME, KISS ME, KISS ME successfully combines catchy pop with bitter despair. Through 17 immensely sensual songs, Robert Smith is at his most poetic ("strange as angels, dancing in the deepest ocean, twisting in the water, you're just like a dream") and vitriolic ("get your fucking voice out of my head...I never wanted any of this, I wish you were dead"). The joyous pop of "Just Like Heaven" and "The Perfect Girl" still delights, and the frisson provided by "Shiver And Shake" reinforces the physical nature of this collection.
Additional Tracks; Deluxe Edition
The Cure: Robert Smith (vocals, guitar, keyboards); Porl Thompson (guitar, saxophone, keyboards); Laurence Tolhurst (keyboards); Simon Gallup (bass guitar); Boris Williams (drums); Roger O'Donnell.
|Remixes 81-04 CDs (2004)
Sounds of the Universe buy CD music There was a time when you could walk into your average record store and find the singles section by spotting the big block of black rows. These rows signaled the whereabouts of the Ds and tended to eat up a disproportionate space of the singles section. In 2004, the Mute label condensed all of these releases into Remixes 81-04, which itself was ironically (or fittingly) presented in multiple versions. This particular version is a triple-disc set that attempts to function as a representative sampling of Depeche Mode's innumerable remixes. It does an admirable job, making a point to highlight glorified extended versions and radical reworkings alike. François Kevorkian, for instance, uses his invaluable understanding of the inner workings of both disco and dub to extend and sensitively tweak "Personal Jesus" for the dancefloor, transforming it into something that he would likely spin while DJing. Air, however, alter "Home" to the point where it sounds like one of their own moody, downcast productions -- Martin Gore plays guest instead of host. One of the most thrilling remixes shows no respect to the source material; Adrian Sherwood's decimation of "People Are People," from 1984, is a succession of jackhammering beats, agitated noise fragments, bizarre vocal interjections. In order to entice hardcore fans who already have the old remixes on the original single releases (or the six exhaustive box sets), a handful of new remixes were commissioned. Most of these appear in the latter half of the third disc, and at least half deserve to be in the company of the better-known reshapes. "Clean" is turned into a bristly acid gallop by Colder, and the new rhythm winds up coming close to mirroring "Personal Jesus." Rex the Dog reaches all the way back to "Photographic," providing layer upon layer of bursting synth. Ironically (or fittingly), Paul Morley -- who, as one of the tricksters behind the ZTT label (Frankie Goes to Hollywood, Propaganda), came up with the idea that you could never have a track remixed too many times -- pens the liner notes. ~ Andy Kellman

Disc Bonus 2
Disintegration CDs (1989)
||20th Anniversary Edition
Sounds of the Universe CD music The 2010 Deluxe Edition of the Cure's 1989 masterwork Disintegration offers a plethora of riches as it is expanded by not just one but two CDs for a whopping total of 32 tracks. Dig into the details and the deluxe Disintegration winds up seeming a little underwhelming. All the non-live B-sides -- a grand total of four ("Babble," "Out of Mind," "2 Late," "Fear of Ghosts") -- wound up on the 2004 rarities clearinghouse Join the Dots, so they're not recycled here. Instead, all the live tracks that were used as B-sides in various territories for the album's four singles are here, presented as the live album Entreat, which itself was released in 1991 as an easy roundup of these cuts. As an enticement for collectors, this live album is augmented by four previously unreleased cuts, so it is now an in-concert replica of Disintegration, something that is perfectly fine but doesn't stray much from the original blueprint. The rarities disc contains the first sketches of those blueprints and they're pretty rough indeed: instrumental home demos, band rehearsals, rough cuts with guide vocals, the kind of stuff that is archivally interesting. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
