not with the sugarlumps and the fat dancer from take that having singles out this week. Though I did go to Woolies today and buy all three formats. I believe Depeche hold the record for 42 (I think it is) 'hit' singles and no number 1.

Good news for Depeche Mode's fans and bankaccounts alike, as the band decide to extend their forthcoming world tour well into 2006. The tour, starting November 2nd in Fort Lauderdale, Florida was originally scheduled to last until April 3rd, when the tour would finish up at London's Wembley Arena.

Then, as the band began doing interviews to promote the record, press reports started coming in about possible summer shows in Stockholm, Dublin, Athens and Bucharest, as well as rumours of open air gigs in other major European cities, such as Berlin, Bratislava, Copenhagen and London.

So is there any truth to these reports and rumours? Thankfully, yes there is! The band are definetly extending the tour, but details are scarce. "They will definitely be touring Europe in the summer", a spokesperson for the band told Empty World 3, "but we have no dates yet".

This means that their impending tour will be the longest since the 1993-1994 monster trek that was the Devotional Tour, and the band will be playing more shows on Touring The Angel than they did on their 1990 World Violation Tour.

The band's commitment to pushing "Playing The Angel" could be taken as a good sign for fans in the parts of the world less travelled by the Mode. Here's hoping fans in South America and Australasia will get a long overdue visit!

It's such a buzz to hear the new album before the official release. I'm really liking it. The tracks that have given me the DM effect over the weekend are: Suffer Well, Macrovision, Nothing's Impossible, Damaged People and Lillian.

Apart from Precious I don't really know what other tracks could make it commercially but it's a great come-back. Bring on the live performances!

It is utterly poor, isn't it? We had to take it off, around track 5 or 6.

Too much guts for you hey!

John the Revelator is possibly the best track Depeche Mode have ever recored.
It will be amazing live

Well, its been thrice round my decks now and I have to say, I'm also in the disappointed camp.

Pain and track 12? (temporarily lost the cover) are the only ones that really float my boat. I agree John the Revelator might be a good live track, but it gets swamped by the production here. I agree with paf about Ben Hillier's work, he hasn't really captured the DM essence at all.

Lillian has to be the one of the worst things they've ever done (sorry Sam).

Depends what type of music you like i suppose.

This is the type of Mode album i have hoped for since Violator.
I have always been into harder electronic music, FLA, Noise Unit, NIN, Nitzer Ebb etc.
So this is pure 'in your face' for me.
The first four tracks are the best start to an album ever in my opinion.

I expect we'll give it another go on Monday.
I like Nitzer Ebb but not much into Nine Inch Nails. To be honest, I can't really see the comparisons with either of them. I don't think the problem is that it has too much "guts" for me, though.

'Macro ' is full of NIN for me, especially the last minute.
I must say i just thought it was ok for the first couple of listens, but you give it a few more and there are so many noises and parts to each track that you pick out.

The next single has now been confirmed as "A Pain That I'm Used To". The track list details are being confirmed as we speak, but the release date is 12th December.

Well, its been thrice round my decks now and I have to say, I'm also in the disappointed camp.

Pain and track 12? (temporarily lost the cover) are the only ones that really float my boat. I agree John the Revelator might be a good live track, but it gets swamped by the production here. I agree with paf about Ben Hillier's work, he hasn't really captured the DM essence at all.

Lillian has to be the one of the worst things they've ever done (sorry Sam).
Must admit since that last post, and listening to the album even more times, Lillian wouldn't be classed as an all time great but I do like this album- like jordanismygod says, it has many enjoyable levels which is the Depeche I like. I have resigned myself to the fact that stunning lyrics from tracks such as Stories of Old, New Dress and oh-so-many more have not been evident for some time, in my opinion, but I still like this album a lot. However, I am bias because if they were to remix The Birdie Song I would still fly to Germany to see them... it is an unconditional love that I have for the Basildon Boys.

I think it's the lyrics of lillian that make me hate it so much - they sound like something an illiterate 12 year old would come up with. It really is a shocking filler track.

For me, it's nothing to do with how 'hard' you like your electronic music, I love NIN and Violator is my favourite post-pop Depeche album, but this doesn't come anywhere close.

The more I listen to it the more it annoys me and sounds like a right mess to me in places. Creating an 'in your face' sound doesn't have to be about by layering on distortion and random, disconnected noises - there has to be some cohesion in the sound palette. Paf mentioned the BBC Radiophohic workshop and he was spot on, just where is that 'analogue' feel we were led to expect in the early interviews?

I'd like to hear this album completely remixed by someone who knows how to create a big, driving electronic soundscape without resorting to layers of sonic shite, as I believe there are a few half-decent songs struggling to get out, but even then, I still can't see me regarding this as one of their better efforts.

All that said, I'm Glad to see Pain is the new single, hoping for a decent radio edit, but I can't understand the release date. Surely after the after-Xmas lull would have gained the single more exposure and a higher chart position.

Does seem very strange indeed Neil.

i've been listening to it for 4 days constantly on holiday and i think the album is fantastic - better than the last two albums put together. My favourite sounding DM albums are Black Celebration and Music for the Masses.

Best songs for me are suffer well and i want it all.
