nice production values, but beware..
This cd is not for kids. Playing the Angel is an adult album about adult relationships...dont be fooled. Almost all Depeche Mode cds (minus their first one) are this way. This cd talks about how "all the sad ones, devil's companions" should "stay as you are, the darkest star." I dont think I need an explanation. Most of the songs are about a man who is in a relationship with a woman (such as "Lillian" where his heart is "ripped apart in the name of fun.") Other songs are clearly about sex "Macro," The album does have some positive songs such as "precious," but dont let it trick you into thinking its all "good" for kids.
