The full addition of Alan Wilder to Depeche Modes lineup created a perfect troika that would last another 11 years as the combination of Martin Gores songwriting Wilders arranging and David Gahans singing and live star power resulted in an ever more compelling series of albums and singles Construction Time Again the new lineups first full effort is a bit hit and miss nonetheless but when it does hit it does so perfectly Right from the albums first song Love in Itself something is clearly up Depeche never sounded quite so thick with its sound before with synths arranged into a miniorchestra/horn section and real piano and acoustic guitar spliced in at strategic points Two tracks later Pipeline offers the first clear hint of an increasing industrial influence the bandmembers were early fans of Einstrzende Neubauten with clattering metal samples and oddly chain ganglike lyrics and vocals The albums clear highlight has to be Everything Counts a live staple for years combining a deceptively simple ironic lyric about the music business with a perfectly catchy but unusually arranged blending of more metallic scraping samples and melodica amid even more forceful funk/hiphop beats Elsewhere on Shame and Told You So Gores lyrics start taking on more of the obsessive personal relationship studies that would soon dominate his writing Wilders own songwriting contributions are fine musically but lyrically preachy puts it mildly especially the environmentfriendly The Landscape Is Changing AMG
