It's a god-eat-god world
Fragile Tension demo & lyrics

I'm really liking this song. A lot of people on DM's official forum don't seem to care for it; I don't know why. It's clearly unmastered (at the very least), so it'll be interesting to hear what the final version sounds like. I'm digging the nasty guitar during the refrain but it would surprise me if what we get on CD has anything resembling it. Love the lyrics- a little bit more ethereal than any of the PTA songs. Gahan's voice is, as always, intoxicating.
 
'Sounds Of The Universe' marks a reunion between Depeche Mode and Ben Hillier, who previously produced their 2005 album 'Playing The Angel'. Eclectic and energised, the band's new LP was recorded in Santa Barbara and New York.

Doesn't Martin Gore live in Santa Barbara? I remember seeing him at the last Moz gig there.

Dave Gahan confirmed that that leak of Fragile Tension was a rough/unfinished mix of the track.

Oh my god. I'm all over that box set :guitar:

I wasn't really interested in the demos CD before reading the tracklist just now, I thought it'd just be the obvious songs. But there's a lot of my all-time favorites from DM on here. Clean, Sweetest Perfection, Judas, Surrender, Only When I Lose Myself, Nothing's Impossible... wow. This is ridiculous.

'Wrong' sounds very Nine Inch Nails but I am LOVING Martin's vocal in the background.

treading lightly
I haven't bothered reading everything about the current album. But I did listen to 'Wrong' and I like it. I really, really want to like this new album. I haven't liked anything they put out in such a lont time. And they're making a tour stop my way. On a Friday. So I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
