    Give me album art of old - Masses, Violator...etc...
    I hate it too. WTF is up with the colors? DM doesn't do color. Other than red.

    Then again if they DO play Lolla, all I hear about them and festivals is not exactly pretty stuff. I'M TORN!! (but totally leaning towards Lolla and probably my hometwon show too )

    Rush is one of my favs of all time. So is Halo.

    I can't believe they wouldn't be there, looking at those dates. Zero Midwestern dates and Lolla is conspicuously right during that week off where they have to travel west from NYC to Seattle?

    That's as close to a lock as I can imagine.

    The board mod on the Lolla boards basically confirmed it. When the tour dates were announced and someone mentioned the gap, he/she said something like "well, that cat is finally out of the bag".

    REALLY?

    That some ugly shit you like Passive - sorry.

    Maybe I think of DM being more sophisticated - even in design. Lord knows they have been in the past - Anton Corbin, etc...

    Minimal is one thing, but it has to be with purpose and direction - this latest art have neither.

    Download 101, It's honestly one of the best live recordings ever...and its filled with they're pre-violator hits. And I'm not just saying this because Depeche Mode is my Favorite Band, it's a must own.

    I love Exciter but i realize why it got such a bad reception. Ultra is no Music for the Masses, but it is worth listening to. It has actually become one of my favorite DM albums. It has a lot of great songs, and all of the Ultra songs are really strong live so it is a good album to at least be familiar with...


    And it's the first album post-Alan Wilder...they did a hell of a job without his help.

    Exciter is a pretty weak DM album...if your not a big DM fan you'd probably hate most of the album. But don't listen to anyone's opinions on Ultra just download it and see. Just give Ultra a chance and you can probably skip Exciter.

    All i keep thinking is these guys have been playing for 30 years. Honestly, how many more times am I going be able to see them before they call it quits. After every album i think that it will probably be the last.

    Fuck! I don't wanna have to miss Moz but im sure he'll play all over so cal in the fall. So possibly/probably no Coachella But DM is sooooooooo worth it.
