The comparisons they're making of their most recent albums with Draconian Times strike me as a bit odd. I absolutely loved their first two albums, but from Shades of God to DT they bored me to hell. Can't complain much about their Depeche Mode worshipping era, but I think that from Symbol of Life onwards they've released their best stuff so far. Their new album is simply great, and I think it might become my favorite one from them. Still Depeche Modeish (or does it has more of Sisters of Mercy?), but mixed with some really good and heavy riffs. What do you guys think about it?
