  1. Unsaid (but assumed) is that they’ll once again play few if any of the songs from the ’80s that people actually want to hear and more of the most annoying bits of SOFAD and EXCITER that no one but the band itself actually likes listening to.

    The PLAYING THE ANGEL disc is largely unlistenable, imho, and I’m one of their biggest fans. Gore’s songwriting has gone steadily downhill over the last decade and Gahan should stick to singing.
