Current Listening - Dave Gahan / Hourglass

As the album title would suggest Dave Gahan has some catching up to do. Taking some time off from his day job in Depeche Mode in order to let the creative juices flow. (Up until the last DM release all songwriting duties were handled by guitarist Martin Gore). Gahan picks up where his last solo release "Paper Monsters" left off but manages to mature as a song writer. The album is obviously a very reflective one and my only complaint is that is too closely resembles recent Depeche Mode releases as far a sound is concerned.
