The Melody? Do you think a mere "melody" is an appropriate soundtrack for the description of a fallen angel's condition? Here the satanic theme is very subltly approached. The reference to the traditional extracanonical thesis of the fallen angels and Lucifer is framed into a complex evaluation of evil as a seducing and powerful force which never asks you to change for it. Or so it seems to me.
Not the best DM song on their new album, but in context, it fits. The entire album can be heard on winamp as a listening party. Here's the nullsoft url. Just paste into winamp and enjoy 52 mins of rather good DM :music: Link: unsv://nsv.stream.aol.com/uvox?cachefile=/aol/us/aolmusic/artists/wmg/depechemode/depechemode_playingtheangel_lp_64.nsa
OK I lke it as a base for comparison. There are other songs.
