Watch the greeting video again - I labeled the men.

It is Mr Phillpott.

The beginning sounds just like the beginning of the Dr Who theme tune. It was the first thing I thought when I heard it and yet no one else has mentioned this yet?

Check the first couple of bars from each song, they're quite similar. :)

Love It

I've been a DM fan since 84. I was a skeptic until I heard Paper Monsters. I'll admit--I didn't love it. But I did love Dave's songs on Playing the Angel. And you know--Martin's been writing songs a lot longer. I love the fact that Kingdom sounds very Depeche Mode-ish. Yes, it might be simple, but I love the lyrics. They hit me at a very good and interesting time. And it jams--lot more than most of the stuff on PM. I'm looking forward to the new album.

It seems he has forgotten to put this song into PTA. But anyway, Kingdom would have been one of the top songs in PTA if it had been there. I hope the rest of the album will evolve from Paper Monsters not PTA.

Excellent song. Heavenly electronic. Anyone noticed the slight resemblance with Billy idol at some points - especially in the beginning of every verse.

Wow, I was very impressed!!! More so then when PM came out, I'll be honest, I didn't really like PM until I got to see it live.....But this song sounds very good, and although I know this the Dave Gahan show this time, this could easily be a top DM song!! He did say that Martin inspired him this time around, and it seems obvious the studio sessions for PTA did as well!! I love it, can't wait till October!!!
