REVIEW! Depeche Mode - Where's The Revolution

Today I declared official Depeche Mode day for myself as I was up early to hear the single Where's The Revolution and I'm impressed. It's a cross between Exciter, Playing The Angel and Songs Of Faith And Devotion. Maybe a clip of Delta Machine thrown into the mix. Lead singer David Gahan said the CD (and song) was politically charged and that message clearly comes through with the lyrics:

You've been kept down

You've been pushed 'round

You've been lied to

You've been fed truths

Who's making your decisions?

You or your religion

Your government, your countries

You patriotic junkies

[Chorus]
Where's the revolution?

Come on, people

You're letting me down
Where's the revolution?
Come on, people
You're letting me down

You've been pissed on

For too long

Your rights abused

Your views refused

They manipulate and threaten

With terror as a weapon

Scare you till you're stupefied

Wear you down until you're on their side

The train is coming
The train is coming
The train is coming
The train is coming
So get on board
Get on board
Get on board
Get on board

The engine's humming
The engine's humming
The engine's humming
The engine's humming
So get on board
Get on board
Get on board
Get on board

Although fans are bitching and moaning about this song, calling it an "extension of Delta Machine) I don't agree. The chorus is so catchy and the lyrics speaks to me, especially in the times we're living in. I love this song and can't wait to hear the CD Spirit when it's released on 17 March.
