Sounds Of The Universe (2LP)
Sounds Of The Universe' is one of Depeche's lower-key albums, but not without explosive
or dramatic moments by any means. The sense of older styles and sounds, classic drum
machines, early synthesizers, a rumbling bass undercarriage, serves new purposes. On the
whole, 'Sounds Of The Universe' is a grower, relying on a few listens to fully take effect, but
when it does, it shows Depeche Mode are still able to combine pop-hook accessibility and
their own take on 'roots' music for an electronic age with sonic experimentation and
recombination - not bad for a band with almost three decades under its collective belt.
Includes the singles “Wrong”, “Peace”, and “Fragile Tension"/"Hole to Feed”.
