DM can be quite a ponderous band, but that's one of their charms.

i really like the lyrical idea in that song, but yeah it goes about saying it in quite a clunky way imo

it's no More than Words, for sure.

The only songs I really like from Ultra are the singles.

I do like "Useless" and "Home" a lot but I wouldn't have expected #1 votes for either

You know I have always been confused about "lay" v "lie" for getting on a bed verbs and that song is one of many that hasn't helped.

Dale, dale, dale (Abbbottt), Friday, 4 May 2012 23:48 (1 year ago) Permalink

I was the #1 vote for "Photographic." Prefer the Some Bizzarre version, natch. Deffo too low, fools.

I cannot tolerate songs like "Somebody" - sappy ballads sung by MLG = zzzz. (This does not include "The Things You Said" which is awesome and was on my ballot.)

wow Lie To Me. amazing. Some Great Reward is miles better than Black Celebration IMO. it's definitely *the turning point* as far as i'm concerned.
If You Want is proto-techno/house/ everything!

the next two both had the same number of points and votes and no #1 votes, so the tie was broken based on the ranking of the highest vote.


15. "Personal Jesus"
single, 1989/Violator, 1990

Wow, higher than I expected for Personal Jesus (wasn't actually sure it would even be here at all).

Johnny Fever, Saturday, 5 May 2012 00:39 (1 year ago) Permalink

But Not Tonight: a song that rose tons in my estimation in recent years. It's an anthem that's ambiguous about that.

Euler, Saturday, 5 May 2012 00:40 (1 year ago) Permalink

"But Not Tonight" was my #1

"But Not Tonight" was going to be my #1 but then it ended up being my #2.

Conversely, that's lower than I expected for Blasphemous Rumours! ilx be trippin.

lol I own that spring '93 Details magazine, remarkable for editor in chief William Shaw writing a story in which he accepts Dave Gahan's word that he's "changed" when Gahan had hit his nadir.

Halo has always seemed like one of the minor tracks on Violator to me, but Violator is so good that even its minor tracks are better than a lot of the rest of DM's catalogue.

Disagree -- they're masters of their game on this track. Rarely have their histrionics been used to such moving affect. Beautiful strings!

Exile in lolville (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Saturday, 5 May 2012 01:05 (1 year ago) Permalink

Everything about Behind the Wheel is perfect imo. It builds through the first verse, picks up steam in the second with the addition of the snare, and so on and so forth.
