Removing the R in 'Revolution' and adding a question mark which for some reason lacks on the original one, was most enjoyable - thanks, StephenKnowlesy wrote: As Stig so brilliantly summed up in his graphic there is no memorable tune and they have moved so far away from what made them unique.
The "problem" with DM is that you soooo want it to be good, and when really really really trying to find something awesome in a track – and realise you can't – the dissapointment sets in. For me it boils down to the rock-attitude which they so brilliantly succeded with on SOFAD, but now fucks up every time as they totally miss the point of harmonies and (for the lack of words) a multi-layered/structual approach to music - a thing Alan was a master at. Nowadays its just minimalistic and very dull. What happend to the high-pitched lead synth and the strings-section?
1. Ditch the Blues - we've heard it now!
2. Stop singing with that bloody sneering voice on EVERY track. There was a b-side (Ghost?), where he sang with his "normal" voice - ace track!
3. Add some harmonies, strings - just more layers/variation.
