It's quite good, but I hope that there will be some darker songs on the album.

Had no idea they were releasing new material!

Was just thinking a couple of days ago how i hadn't heard any new stuff from them in quite a while. 

The link in the OP did not work for me however i wonder if this is the song:


Interesting article about the album and Andy Fletcher:

Your welcome and thank you for making this thread - this is what alerted me to new DM material.

From what i can tell this seems like it will be an exciting album.

New song 'My Cosmos is mine'

Album is critically lauded so far....

Holding a metacritic score of 86 from 15 reviews.....seems they have resonated with the critics.

To put that 86 into perspective, u2's reworked album currently holds a score of 66 from same number of critical reviews.
Since 1995.....

Steady review of album.



https://pitchfork.com/reviews/albums/depeche-mode-memento-mori/amp/

Got the album last night and currently on a second listen.  It is a work of art,  the cathedral sounds are there,  the darkness is also there.  While it's clearly not Violator - it is really good (although far too early to call it great). 

'Don't say you love me' sounds almost like a James Bond theme,  which is in start contrast to 'My Cosmos is Mine' the opener,  or 'Speak to Me' the closer. 

I enjoyed the Pitchfork review also,  thought you would appreciate these comments from Pitchfork;

After more than 40 years, it is astonishing and redeeming how rarely Depeche Mode have been embarrassing. Yes, they’re a quarter-century removed from their last megahits, but they’ve never deigned to the menial tasks of senescence—cruise ships, state fairs, full-album tours

also

They’ve suffered addiction, abdication, near-death, and, now, death itself, but they’ve never made a truly awful record by chasing trends they’d already missed. For all their dependable despair, Depeche Mode thrive more on persistence and self-respect.

 ;)

I don't pay a huge amount of attention as not really been a fan of DM down the years - but here is a question....


Have they been all over the talk shows/radio shows/doing endless interviews etc etc promoting new album....Big billboards hired out and plastered with stuff, elaborate promotional videos/stunts etc etc.

Or have they just promoted it to a point and then just got on with letting the music do most of the talking?

Here in the states they have appeared on a couple of late night shows and played the lead single 'ghosts again',  also there have been some interviews,  but nothing overwhelming as we have seen with other bands

Never been all that into DM

Decided to give this album a go as read a lot about it.

I am glad i did - it is for my money a pretty good record.
