Tons of thanks to Matt Mudlow for the happenstance!
I'll admit it.
I never got Depeche Mode. Total respect but just I never heard a thing that did it for me. I'm glad that you did.
Alan Wilder was once in Depeche Mode. The sound of his outfit Recoil is exactly what I found lacking in DM. I'll will cop to not hearing a lot of his previous thing...however if it's a contest Recoil dusts 'em. They are so very wicked.
Wilder throws his thing down with the chocolatey buzz paranoia of Tricky, the genre crushing, reality-bending fabulousness of Massive Attack, the sonic expressiveness of Pink Floyd, SEX, and sex with the smart and darkly synthesized pop sense and skill of Depeche Mode.
I utterly adour this.
