Overview

Following the British model for EPs this once -- and not again for some years -- Depeche released the first single from Songs of Faith and Devotion in two parts in America. The single mix of the lead track is astonishing, a grappling with grunge's emphasis on guitar noise on the band's own terms -- there's feedback everywhere, but brilliantly sculpted and arranged around the main track by Wilder and Flood with fierce, precise vigor. Gahan's new rock god persona fit the lyrics to a tee, just tender when it needed to be and balls-out otherwise. Two further mixes surfaced on this particular single. Mark Stent's "Throb" mix lives up to its name; there aren't many changes, but the steady drum punch remains present, while extra treatments and vocal loops texture the song further. Supereal's "Babylon" mix, meanwhile, gets a more radical workover, with house beats and bass on the one hand and extra distortion and weirdness on the other, while retaining the vocals. The one additional number is a slight curiosity, being nothing more than the Gore-sung, string-driven ballad from Songs, "One Caress," without any additional changes. It's a great song, it's just odd that it would be included here.
