Depeche Mode - Playing the Angel
I can’t think of a better album to write about in my first Depeche Mode review at AllOddMusic as their latest release “Playing the Angel”.

I used to be a big fan of DM, but unfortunately they lost me for a while, probably after their “Ultra” album released in 1997. Main reason why I loved these boys so much was that there was always something new to explore when listening to their music. Every listening used to be an adventure.
I haven’t felt like that with their later releases though. I was very pleasantly surprised after I first heard their newest album “Playing the Angel”.

Sigur Ros - Takk…

Sigur Ros - Takk
Impatiently awaited new album of Icelanders Sigur Ros is finally out. It has been 3 years since their latest () release in 2002. Expectations were very high, so let’s dig in and rip this album apart.

About a 2 minute opening Intro gets us all excited wandering what is going to be next. It dissolves into a second track Glósóli with strangely sounding and played Kick drum. It almost sounds like it’s been wired up through a Rotating Lesley cabinet when recorded. It is accompanied with a warm sounding bass guitar and beautiful vocals. Typical bow played guitar goes off at the last 1.5 minute of the track. Very heavy and distorted sound new for Sigur Ros. Maybe too much of a distortion for my taste, it could be the recording though. I’m sure it would sound amazing live.
