Martin Goes at it Alone.
on September 2, 2002
As Depeche Mode approached the height of their popularity, songwriter Martin Gore quietly released his solo EP. With the exception of "Motherless Child," I didn't know that these songs were actually covers until I bothered to read the CD's credits. Gore sings these tracks with enough personality and depth to claim these songs as his own. Productionwise, it doesn't stray very far from the synth-heavy roots of Depeche Mode, but the mood and tone are a bit darker. Those who are looking for the hook-heavy pop of "Strangelove" or "Personal Jesus" will be disappointed here, but this is a pretty good collection that DM fans shouldn't miss.
