Then there's the blues stuff, i. Another one turns up in "Slow", repeating endlessly as Gahan sings Gore's lyrics about taking it nice and easy in bed these days. The requisite Gore vocal here, "The Child Inside", might have the most embarrassing extended metaphor he's committed to date tears turn into a river that overflows and drowns the loved one's inner child?
As for Gahan's own songs-- this time, their music is by Kurt Uenala-- they're generally a reasonably convincing imitation of middling Gore. It's not a totally dull record. Gahan and Gore are singing as well and hyperdramatically as they ever have. Still, what made Depeche Mode work, when they worked, wasn't just the contrast between Gore's dry detachment and Gahan's dorky innocence up to, let's say, Music for the Masses and the late-breaking badassery that replaced it from Violator onward.
It was their constant pushing forward of their sound-- expanding the vocabulary of what electronics could do in pop songs.
Their records were packed with cross-talking hooks, ingeniously knotted melodies, noises that blurred the border between pitch and percussion.
