Just for truth in advertising, the proper billing should be “Alan Wilder, formerly of Depeche Mode.” True, he had an 11-year tenure, but he left the group 15 years ago. During that time, his role as synth wizard (see “Violator”) was important; since then, Recoil has been his outlet to prove that he didn’t dig the pop side of DM. This past decade, he’s been MIA musically until lately, so for all those moody post-teens low on Prozac, you can go get yours here. With Architect and Conjure One.
