The Bad Lieutenant album is surprisingly good. I didn't conceive that a Bernard Sumner album that focused on songwriting over rhythms could be so accomplished and satisfying.
A point in case is to compare Sink Or Swim to New Order's Krafty. The two songs are very similar, both skimming along the surface and replicating Regret to some extent. Krafty works best when Bernard isn't singing, the middle section comprising of keyboard riffs, Peter Hook's bass and the guitars sounds effortless and combines a groove with the injection rock riffs brilliantly. Sink or Swim, plays down instrumental passages setting them aside for the outro and even then overlaying them with backing vocals and refrains. The refrains work well because the melody and vocal parts are strong enough to have them. Its simply a better song, and a lot more memorable.

What was the first song you ever heard by 6 Covenant?
-This has to be Dead Stars. And it's also the reason I developed into the great Covenant fan that I am, now. The Sax-part really sealed it for me. And the dancebility is a great bonus.
What is your favourite album of 2 Depeche Mode?
-Oi. That's a tough one. I thin I'll have to nominate Ultra and Violator. Kinda stereotypical, but still: MY favourite songs are on these albums.
What is your favourite lyric that 5 has sung Vangelis?
-Does humming count as "singing"? *g* "N/A" is the best answer here.
How many times have you seen 4 live VNV Nation?
-Sadly enough only one time, during the first "On A Dark Winter's Night" Festival in Oberhausen. I think it was 2003.
What is your favorite song by 7 Joy Division?

I got the idea to make a CD for him with music I love, with a high probability he doesn't know, either because it's too underground, out of his area of knownledge, or too old... hopefully giving something he would love, of course. :)
Gathering the tracks I wanted there, I quickly came to the conclusion that I actually needed 2 CDs to fit the songs in. so I made one "Down" CD, with quiet music, and one "Up" CD, with rather punchy music.
