now you know 2 of my favourite groups.. What do u think about DM? The first song I listened to was "walking in my shoes", and I fell in love with them. Now everytime they come to Italy I go to their concerts.. I think they improved, without losing their tipycal sound..
Simply (one of) the best..
Amazing band. My perception and rating of their stuff is pretty similar to the U2 eras I like the most. Imho, everything DM touched between 1987 (Music for the masses) and 1997 (Ultra) was pure gold. Their earlier releases are pretty cool, too but everything from 2000 onwards was only so so...
Great live band,too with a good share between the charisma of Dave and the rather shy Martin.
Don't miss them when they play near you.
Next time they come to Cali im going!!! theres no stopping me! I love the 00's work i think there getting better except for the early 90s late 80s work which is still the best. I dont care much for there early work.
"I think they're the best collection of songs we've put together, there's no weak songs on that album. But it still isn't as an album...the whole isn't greater than the sum of it's parts and that fucking annoys me." - Bono on How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb in 2005
'MLK', the final song of the Unforgettable Fire album, stands for Martin Luther King.
