    In part gripping.... But Gore doesn't always push his voice to its brilliantly effete/effeminate extremes. [May 2003, p.104]
  2. The problem lies in Gore's lack of emotional and musical range.
  3. Gore is almost too polite to these songs, but surely that can be forgiven when his love for them is so apparent.

    Gore's brittle choirboy voice lacks the depth and grandeur of Gahan's, but he still gamely takes on some adventurous choices. [Jun 2003, p.108]

    The musical treatment is Depeche Mode-lite, setting generally passionate songs in an antiseptic electronic context, and Gore's over-earnest voice lacks the presence to reinvigorate them. [May 2003, p.120]
  6. Q Magazine

    While his taste is textbook classic, his arrangements are not. [May 2003, p.104]
