The new Camouflage album is lovely. Or at least, it is if you're like me. Take all of the best Depeche Mode songs that Martin sings and add in the darkest and danciest of Beborn Beton. Stir in bit of instrumental shoegazer-y, and there you have it. I've been listening to it on repeat for two days.

As usual, a band whose primary language isn't English has pretty amazing lyrics. Case in point:


I was locked and knocked to ground,
you said that love can turn things 'round,
you said to me:
love's the perfect key.
I tried so hard to get things done,
I tried so hard to be the one,
as you said to me,
that love's the perfect key.

I bless the ways that we're walking,
words that we're talking
and there's more than eyes can see -
beyond the wall of the things I've done,
you're awaiting me
and love's the perfect key.

I crossed the line another time,
existence build on coward lies,
but you offered me,
a new reality.
I cried to you, to hear my plea,
our souls in one tonality,
you set me free -
love's the perfect key...

I bless the ways that we're walking,
words that we're talking
and there's more than eyes can see -
beyond the wall of the things I've done,
you're awaiting me
and love's the perfect key.

I tore down all of these walls but somehow,
I never thought it could be enough -
now I know there is something rising high above -
a perfect love...
