Depeche ModeSounds of the Universe (Capitol)
There's no brave new world for Depeche Mode. The UK trio's impeccably produced 12th album orbits back around the black-hole romanticism and sonic flourishes of its 1980s catalog with some welcome success ("Wrong," "Fragile Tension"). Dave Gahan's songwriting ("Hole to Feed," "Miles Away/The Truth Is") has improved since 2007's solo Hourglass, but this Sounds like a mundane midlife crisis.
