Depeche Mode – The Story So Far(Laser Media)

Who cares if Depeche Mode just dropped an album in March? Certainly not Depeche Mode. Here we are again, with new music in our ears and a tour to keep us company. Here’s Andy Frisk’s review of their last album; what do you think of the band’s next era?

For a band that’s three decades plus into their musical careers, and still pushing the boundaries of their chosen genre, Depeche Mode is nothing short of purely innovative, as well as traditionally progressive, masters of their craft. While other bands born out of the same post-punk movement are striving to remain relevant, Depeche Mode continues to show them how to do just that with Spirit.

“With a career spanning over 4 decades and 16 albums, metal legends Iron Maiden continue to prove clearly that age is just a number! Not even a week into their Book of Souls US Tour, the band was in high spirits and as energetic as ever.”

Whack Album of the Week:

TLC – American Gold (Liberator)

Thought this was going to be a comeback album and, as we all know, the 90s is when true pop-hiphop and hiphop died. The Crazy Sexy Cool chicks of yesteryear are trying to play on a name that quite frankly became null and void when Left Eye exited this earth. There was something about the trio that lured you into their drama, love, and epically new sounds of their era. They once had smash hits and world tours; now, prepare to see them in local venues and having this album not go far. This isn’t to say the ladies aren’t talented, but trying to rehash a sound that pushed you to stardom some 20 years later is not the way to grow as artists. 1/5 stars for this album – something is missing and I think we all know what.
