Is "Policy Of Truth" a criticism of selfishness (a la "Everything Counts") or simply a reflection of selfishness during the band's heroin phase?

ya i would have to say teen pregnancy.

-it's too late to change events. it's time to face the consequence, when DELIVERING the proof...

btw: they dave didn't get into heroin until the devotional album, which was four years after violator.

While there are some absolutely great tracks on there, there are some remixes that are sorely missed (at least I think so). The Orb's housey remix of Happiest Girl, World in My Eyes - The Oil Tank Mix (I think they only have the Mode to Joy mix), and I would have loved to have seen a collection of their b-sides (ie. Dangerous, Sea of Sin, Kalied, My Joy) as well as their non-lyric techno side of their work. They've done so many great tracks, but there are some on that comp that really make me wonder who selected them.

I like the Goldfrapp one. Some of the remixes sound like the original too. weird.

are you sure about that?

do you have any links to the info?

the only reason I ask is because the tiff between martin and dave seemed pretty unresolvable.

They are most definitely in the studio. Check www.depechemode.com for evidence of it, including photos. Can't get more proof than that. There is also an announcement coming up in 3 days. Not sure what it's about but have to assume that it's about the new album.

it was dave getting all upset about the song writing duties of the band. He was going to quite the band if he didn't get more of his writing involved.
which is funny because martin has written 95% of dp songs from the get go.


I'll see if I can find any of the articles.

GAHAN GAHAN GONE?



DEPECHE MODE frontman DAVE GAHAN says he will leave the band if he isn't given a bigger songwriting role.
The star, who has just released his acclaimed debut solo album 'Paper Monsters', said bandmate Martin Gore, who is Depeche Mode' songwriter, has got to be a little more democratic if the band are to have a future. The band's last studio album, 'Exciter', was released in 2001.

Gahan told Spiegel magazine: "Whether there is a future for Depeche Mode very much depends on whether Martin is willing and open enough to change. All I know is it won't be going on as it was, I want to be involved more in working on new songs."

Gahan insisted self-doubt had stopped him from sticking up for himself more.

He added: "I didn't have enough confidence, and where should I have taken it from? After all, Martin Gore is the creative head of Depeche Mode. I was just the singer."

"Martin sometimes even told me how to sing certain passages. I often felt like an instrument being used by others."

Gahan plays Glastonbury's Other Stage on June 29 and appears at the Move Festival in Manchester on July 12.

looks like that was from at least a year ago. ya, dave has been a bit pushy about his songwriting. i didn't know he was getting that heavy about it though. sure, he wrote an album but martin has penned HUNDREDS of songs. his songs ARE the band. Dave already got what he wanted with the devotional and exciter albums - a tougher sound, which scared martin a bit.

anyway, i guess they have figured this out or martin choked and let him do a few songs. paper monsters was an ok album but not great so i hope his writing (if any) on the new DM album is shared with martin and not just dave on his own.

I thought Alan Wlider wrote a lot of the songs back in the day too.
Alan Wilder was the real musician in the group.

If Gore writes so well, why do his solo albums stink so bad?
