Can the items of this box be sold separately?
I would be interested in acquiring the "Bonus & Remixes" disc.

I feel a bit sorry for all these dissapointed die hard fans out there. I think that beeing dissapointed from a new Depeche Mode record is part of the game for fanboys from the early days. A bit funny and obvious i think.
For me this is for sure a brilliant record from start to finish. Great songwriting and very intersting soundwork - would love have an instumental version of this album.

Nice presentation, badges!! tons of photos - for what ever reason, yes you look well, now go programme a drum machine for the tour!!
The DVD 'Making Of...' is simply quite fascinating...
Super album, such a slick cacophony of noize.

I had so high expectations for this album. The leading single Wrong is just brilliant but it's very easy to see why they picked it. The album has no other singles on it. It barely has any good tracks at all. Half of the album is listenable and the rest you forget the moment you've heard them.

Why Gahan should have three tracks on it when one of them (Come Back) is worse than any of his solo work is beyond me. There are some good extra tracks on the box set that could have turned this into a decent record.

It begins quite alright. In Chains is a slow but decent opener. The Gahan track Hole To Feed is quite catchy and Wrong is just outstandingly good. Fragile Tension, In Sympathy and Perfect all sound way to similar and uninteresting. Miles Away/The Truth Is at least has some experimenting with the drum sound. The album closer Corrupt is another of the "good" tracks.

I've tried really hard to like it but together with Ultra this really is a crap record coming from this band. Vintage equipment alone won't make a great songs.

Yes, the great one! as for me it's another one of my fav DM albums among BC, Ultra, Exciter, PTA and probably Violator too...

There is some serious atonement going on with this new Mode record. For the first time since Songs of Faith and Devotion this band are pushing themselves, they are innovating, they are not contentedly spewing out the norm. After the last go-round with these boys, I'd written them off. Playing the Angel had to be the lowest point since Ultra from them. I was smugly playing Recoil non-stop, figuring the prima dona finishing academy had caved in upon itself for the final time. What was next, a solo album from fletch?

As their lead single intones and is titled, I had it all wrong. Instead of vintage gear taking presidence in their press releases, they just put it to work and dropped the cynical marketing ploys of the last album. Gahan has written some of the songs on here, yes, but for the first time ever he and Gore have actually collaborated on a track. That is correct, they worked together from the ground up and I have to say the final result is noteworthy.

The more I listen to this thing (and there have been plenty of listens) the more acutely aware I am of just how hard they really did work on Sounds of the Universe. Watching the dvd which came with my boxset I'm numbed by the level of detail they focused in on and honed their craft to. It's much like a dull blunt blade becoming perfectly recurring, glinting with conviction. Ready to take on all comers. To put it plainly this is an ass kicking Depeche Mode we are confronted with, not the tepid almost apologetic lot they've been languishing as the last decade or so.

I am, to put it mildly... shocked.

Given enough time and exclusion from the world, they could have topped their halycon days easily with this one but four years was long enough. Depeche Mode are exciting again and what's more there's that element which has been missing a very long time: fear. You don't know if Gahan's singing for you or at you with this one. Perhaps he's just singing for himself but I will say they're experimenting once again... only now they drink coffee and eat at healthy cafes, they spend a lot of time listening to what they're doing and my word are they involved in the creative process.

It makes me have to eat my own words and abandon the safe hutch I've been ensconced within since Alan left. The Mode have returned, everyone. Do sit up and take note. If they can top this little stroke of insidious innovation I'll be surprised but Sounds of the Universe is a literal resurrection.

I must admit that the "In Chains" got me form the first second and made me open to the complete album. I was completely disappointed by "Playing The Angel" (for me one of their worst albums) and thus curious (and frightened) about what this album would sound like.

For my taste they finally found their way back and connected well to their earlier sound that I personally have missed a lot since the release of "Songs of Faith and Devotion". For me, "Violator" is their best album and I find that SOTU follows that sound pretty well. Not to get me wrong - I don't want a copy of "Violator", but of all albums since "Songs of Faith..", SOTU is the one that continues the sound of "Violator " and "Music for the Masses" best. Maybe it's just that I hang on to these old analogue synth-sounds, but on the other hand it's the sound that DM stands for. It's the sound that was defined by DM to a better part and that is also typical for Mute Records.

It's just good to me to find out that with this album Depeche Mode is Depeche Mode again.
