Depeche Mode – Precious

Posted by Jay Medina on January 15, 2007

This song may have been out for a while, however, I am very impressed with the song and the video.  The mixture of live action video along with CGI in a very surreal surrounding makes for a very eloquent but haunting scenescape.

I’ve been a Depeche Mode fan since they released Black Celebration in 1986.  Their earlier stuff was a little goofy, however, they blossomed and grew into a very relevent band with solid contributions over the years.

Dave Gahan really started solidifying their sound after he kicked the drugs and got himself professional singing lessons.  They still embrace their keyboard and synthesizer roots, but they aren’t retro or cheesy in any way.  I hope you enjoy the video as much as I have:
