By the way I love martin's guitar work! :)


I don't know about that--Dave just gave a public shout out to the Knife/Fever Ray producer Berg and those albums are VERY electronic with NO guitars whatsoever.

I'd love to hear an album of stripped down, lightly produced electronic oriented songs like the life studio versions of SOTU that was on the bonus DVD. Those versions of the SOTU songs sounded so much more alive than the produced versions that made the final album.

Berg's involvement doesn't mean that the album will be more electronic at all.
Dave did suggested that Martin's guitar might play a more prominent roll this time.

That's true , I think they hired Berg for his programming and sound design skills , he may be responsible for some of the electronic sounds but he wouldn't get to say how much guitar a song would have .

The song made be hyped!

So I got the single and that was that, didn't think there was a new album coming out. Then in March, I was in a club and this song came on and the song just gave me goose bumps! I told my brother at that moment, who ever these guys are singing this song, they just topped depeche mode. My brother was like come on , just because of this one song you can't say that. And that song was Enjoy The Silence the hands and feet mix. Well I didn't know it was the boys till 2 weeks later a friend had the song on a casette. When I asked him who is this band and he told me DM, I was shocked!

So I guess what I'm trying to say is that we will know when they have topped Violator, not by where the album lands on the charts, or the press reviews but by getting those feelings, going crazy over the song or getting goose bumps when you hear the songs. :cool:
I guess what I'm trying to say I


Yes I understand you completely :D
It's a persnal feeling, and your story was very interesting, it's realy great when you can get goose bumps from music.
I am sure the new album will give the same emotions to new fans who will discover them with it.
For me this song was Dream on, so I am sure for everybody this first album and experience is different :p

Some songs from the album:

The songs are very, very good. I'm not knowledged in music production and stuff like that but i like how the sounds are composed and put into the songs. It's like they are in the right place. I get the feeling i get while listening to DM - if you take the sound or the melody (even those in the background) in song "X", for example, you can further develop it to another song completely :eek:.

I'm excited to have a new producer in there personally, although not sure if Berg is being used as a "programmer" or "producer" or what. I like some of the other bands he's involved with quite a bit, so am curious what he might be able to bring to the table with the unreal collection of gear that DM [well, Martin really] has assembled. Martin's studio is synth porn for people who like looking at all those wires and synthesizers!

I think Berg will probably have the same job that Kerry Hopwood had on Ultra . Part of his job no doubt will be to program the analog synthesizers to come up with sounds .

Last week there was a short interview with Christoffer Berg on a Swedish radio channel.
Actually it was an old friend of Christoffer who called him up to ask if it was true that he was working with Depeche.
The friend who is a radio show host and a singer in a Swedish synthband called Universal Poplab just couldn't believe that his old friend Christoffer was in the studio with Depeche so he had to call him to check.
And yes Christoffer said that his job is to program the synthesizers and come up with sounds.

I think it's good that they hired a new guy to do this . Should bring in some new sounds . I'm also curious to see what Berg would come up with with the no doubt more extensive collection of equipment Martin has compared to what Berg has previously had at his disposal . I like the sounds he came up with on his projects .
