Этого альбома («Ultra”, 1997) не должно было быть. Гаан сидел на наркоте. Гор , который поёт, поднажал. И о чудо. Вышло чрезвычайно мощно. Хотя и не без мрака. Многие песни на альбоме, включая «Barrel of a Gun», повествуют о роли судьбы. Заинтересованность Мартина генетикой — «Единственный журнал, на который я подписан — это New Scientist», — послужила основанием уверенности в том, что человеческая жизнь на большем её протяжении, определена с рождения/ Тут , конечно , Мартин дал маху.

2006-06-05 - Single Release - John The Revelator / Lilian .
June 5th 2006 . "John the Revelator"/"Lilian" is the second double A-side single by Depeche Mode and their forty-fourth single overall, released on 5 June 2006. Both songs are featured on Depeche Mode's 2005 album, Playing the Angel and serve as the fourth single from the album (see 2006 in British music). The single became another UK Top 20 hit for the band, reaching number 18. "John the Revelator" was added to BBC 6 Music's B-List, but it failed to make any other BBC playlists or that of Xfm London. It was also played by a few alternative rock radio stations in the US, including WKQX (Chicago), throughout 2006, despite not being released as a single there. "John the Revelator" was edited down several seconds for the single, while "Lilian" was slightly remixed and the introduction was shortened.
The single is the first UK double A-side release by the band since "Blasphemous Rumours / Somebody" in 1984. "John The Revelator" was played during Depeche Mode's Touring the Angel tour and can be watched on the tour's DVD.
While the Depeche Mode track known as "John the Revelator" should be considered a novel composition written by Martin Gore (rather than a "cover" song - like "Route 66", "Dirt" or "So Cruel" - three songs that are covered by Depeche Mode) the song has its origins in an early 20th-century gospel/folk song "John the Revelator" famously performed by Son House, Blind Willie Johnson, and later by such acts as The Holy Modal Rounders, The Blues Brothers and John Mellencamp, with each new version adding or ignoring the original lyrics if not the original context. Similarly, the Depeche Mode track employs several elements of the namesake including the call-and-response chorus ("who's that shouting? John the Revelator" etc. )
