That was a great podcast. I love that the interviewer was very easy going and down to earth, yet knowledgable of DM to make Martin laugh

OMG it's actually hilarious and so much fun!! I am surprised the interviewer hadn't heard of Fad Gadget and a few other things, but wow this is a great podcast!

Today marks the debut in 1981 of the DM single Dreaming Of Me written by Vince Clarke

Just yesterday I listened to the Playing The Angel album again and I really got the feeling that there is some connection to the Loveboat album production and sound-wise. It's a similar low fi sound and also atmosphere. The beginning of I Want It All, for example, reminded me of Perchance to Dream (that drum sound) and it sort of has the same atmosphere. Anyway, might just be me but I find that interesting. Makes you wonder though why Loveboat (which I really like) sank without a trace and this was really successful.

Something about Loveboat promotion never got of the right start. Not to mention no tour after 4 years and just two singles released almost a year apart. Mute sort left this untouched.

Yes, you are right. It's a shame Loveboat never got the attention it deserved. And I add one more thing - Precious could really have been an Erasure single and the opening sounds of "John the Revelator" made me think "hmm, did Martin use Vince's synths?" Anyway, somehow VCMG was the culmination of it I think. It's funny how it all comes together.

Anyway, will be interesting to see how the new Depeche Mode album turns out. I think they will work with a new producer so they may change direction again. I lost a bit of interest in the band during the late 90's. Actually that started with SOFAD which I don't mind these days but back then I didn't get it somehow. I have recently rediscovered them again and it's good to see that they are still around after all these years and the problems they had...

I have been listening to Violator and the trying to deconstruct the beauty of this album that has not been matched since. The musical style on that album is pure joy.

You always hear DM critics always compare new DM albums to Violator and they always fall short. They never got close again. I will say they have had some good singles since on some albums. but as a perfect album concept from Beginning to end- Violator

I must say 'Music For The Masses' to me is in the same league as 'Violator'

I agree; it was very much of its time ('87/'8 and signaled the breakout of the band, especially in the U.S.  Then in '90 "Violator" exploded and nothing was the same.

Well Music For The Masses has the elements that would lay ground for Violator. The song structure got similar treatment but more minimal on Violator
