Exactions "Paper Monsters"

October 15 2007

Upon returning from an extended tour Depeche Mode frontman took only a short pause, took a deep breath and wrote another, is the second, a solo record under the straightforward title Hourglass (Hourglass).

On the Phenomenon of Depeche Mode and the identity of Ghana in particular we can argue as long as necessary, in fact, their contemporaries, so tight touring to this day can be counted on the fingers. On top of "Dispatches" not only proved its relevance creatively, their good plates were sold, sold, and will be sold worldwide.

Dave Gahan - an outstanding personality, behind a heavy period of drug addiction, and drastically changed the fate of this man. Dave calls himself a «Hourglass» very personal creation. It just so happened that from the time of such albums as Music for a Masses (Music for the Masses), each plate of Depeche Mode was unique in its way, an ambitious project, unlike its predecessor.

Search for new sound - a distinctive feature of this pert British team, which is already a decade detachment "tower" of fans around the world. A luxury it would ignore such a high reputation. It should also be noted that, everything else, Dave has a huge credit of trust and a fan, of course, is entitled not only to experiment, but a mistake. His first album, «Paper Monsters» (Paper Monsters) was not bad rap music critics, but even among the fans was greeted with a certain coolness.

Compared with the "monsters", "Chasiki" - pronounced electronic album concept. The record opens with a surprisingly elegant ballad Saw Something - the second potential single from the album, I remind you, the first single became the Kingdom (UK). Exit «Hourglass» is scheduled for October 22. The disc is completely up to date and surely will find its audience. Well, if listening to this album you prefer «Music for Masses», so this is your paper monsters, only now is it worth to fight them?
