Angels & Ghosts

Released

After The Light The Dead See, Soulsavers and Dave Gahan turned into a fully credited partnership for Angels and Ghosts, a canny enough move  for anyone who had missed Gahan’s work on the earlier album. Shorter and a touch more focused in comparison, Angels and Ghosts really feels like Gahan’s settled into a key non-Depeche Mode space, with Soulsavers’ blend of various American roots musics with a touch of electronic rigor letting him comfortably rip on songs like “Shine” and “Don’t Cry” and aim for tenderer approaches on “One Thing” and “Lately.”
