one of the tracks, "peace", almost sounds beach-boys like , with some very ethereal harmonies..cant wait for the album. IMHO, Depeche deserve to be where they are success-wise, cause they really have put a lot in to keep things fresh with each release, with perhaps EXCTIER being the weak link in the chain.
