Depeche Mode - Playing The Angel: Wikipedia Album Entry
Playing the Angel is the eleventh full-length album by Depeche Mode and was released 17 October 2005. It was supported by the Touring the Angel tour. The album has been called a more organic record for using more analog synths than digital ones. In addition, most of the soundscapes presented are harsher and groovier than the more mellow Exciter.
The album is the first of Depeche Mode's to feature Dave Gahan as co-writer: three of the tracks (Suffer Well, I Want It All and Nothing's Impossible) had their lyrics written by the singer, while Christian Eigner and Andrew Phillpott wrote the music on these.
