I've just heard 'Fragile Tension' on Youtube, one of the new songs from Depeche Mode's forthcoming album "Sounds Of The Universe" (Release date: 21st April 2009). I must say I'm very disappointed with it. I'm surprised as well that they'd release an awful song like that (they have never released an awful song before). It is really horrible. It could easily rank as one of the worst songs in their catalogue. No amount of production could do justice to this song. Not even Alan Wilder could save this song.
Wel,l here's the link to the song on YouTube. You'll be the judge. I'm sure you'll be shaking your head in disbelief.
I've embedded it here as well for easy access:
