On his solo debut, Depeche Mode frontman Dave Gahan doesn't stray far from the hypnotic electronic dance pop made famous by his two decade-spanning band. The lead single, the honky-tonk rocker "Dirty Sticky Floors," is reminiscent of DP's devilish "Personal Jesus," with background vocals that recall Gahan's androgynous bandmate,

A fabulous first for Dave Gahan. The songs are written with such feeling and deep meaning. A look inside the heart and mind of a man who has struggled with so much. I love it!! Way to go Dave.

HI. This is Jeff, i am a fan of Depeche Mode, so naturally, i went out to buy this album. I didn't expect much as this was Dave Gahan's first solo album, but i was very wrong. I was blown away by the first track; Dirty Sticky Floors, it reminds me of a modern rock track. It is actually #7 on edge102 in Toronto. I would have to say this is the 2nd best album of the year because of Matthew Good's Avalanche which is the best album of all time for me. Here is a rating of each track 1. Dirty Sticky Floors **** 2. Hold On ***** 3. A Little Piece **** 4. Bottle Living ***** (very Personal Jesus meets I Feel You on this track) 5. Black & Blue Again ***** 6. Stay ***** 7. I Need You **** 8. Bitter Apple ****** (The highlight of the album) 9. Hidden Houses *** (not very strong track) 10. Goodbye *** (pretty good but not strong) the single tracks to Dirty Sticky Floors and I Need You: Dirty Sticky Floors (radio edit): ***** Stand Up: **** Maybe: **** I Need You (radio edit): ***** Closer: ***** (written by Dave during the Ultra sessions, it was rejected by Martin Gore; The Songwriter) Breathe: *** brak109
