In April 2009, my favorite band, Depeche Mode, released their 12th studio album, Sounds of the Universe. I knew I would love it, as the single that preceeded the album was fantastic, also, I'm a HUGE DM fan, so when I learned there would be a Deluxe Box Set, with bonus tracks and never before heard demos and documentary videos and other extras, I really wanted it. My wife was kind enough to buy it for me, as a Father's Day, Birthday, and Christmas present, and I was (and still am) very pleased with it. As is par for the course at this blog, I've been meaning to do a write up of the album and the Box Set extras for nearly a year now, so I decided it was time to post a little something about it. Someday I will get around to talking about the box set. I'm sure.
So here's the commercial for the box set.
And a In the Studio video to go with the first single, Wrong.
And the official music video to the third single, Fragile.
