#18] Depeche Mode Playing The Angel
Listening to Playing the Angel makes it very difficult to believe that
Depeche Mode is 25-year-old recording act. While most bands gradually fall deeper
into mediocrity, the group has probably released their finest work since Songs
of Faith and Devotion. Vocalist Dave Gahans writing presence has also
spurred Martin Gores creative juices to reach an artistic apex higher than
any point of the last decade.
