Depeche Mode-'A
Frame' (Sire)


Where a group like Japan car

Billed as another bright new force in
syntho-pop, Depeche Mode is still
reeling from its Speak and Spell suc-
cess. Once they got over the fact that
you can use synthesizers for dance
music without overusing the machines,
Martin Gore and his buddies David
Gahan and Andy Fletcher decided they
ought to try for more advanced musical
direction. They set out into the musical
fields with a glistening scythe, under
brooding, cloudy skies.
But the blade was too dull. Gore aims
for thoughtfullness, or maybe melan-
choly or something like that. His lyrics
and titles ("Leave in Silence," "My
Secret Garden," "The Meaning of
Love") are deceptively full of them-

a few "thoughtful" synthetic numbers
and keep them utterly ear-pleasing,
even dancing, Depeche Mode doesn't
sound convincing. Gore's no David
Sylvain, and he's certainly not Brian
A Broken Frame is not as humdrum
as some would have me believe,
though. Occasionally the popness rises
from the fields, in a airy display of
cinematic colors, background flurries,
and lighthearted minimalism. (Damn,
got to watch those idiotic metaphors.)
What I mean is, there are, of course,
good moments on "Satellite" and a
couple others. The group misses Yaz
defector Vince Clarke and nothing here
equals "New Life," but the blade is just
dull, not blunt.

A look at some
University nudes

By Janice Mabie
ARTISTS HAVE been trying to
capture the natural inherent
beauty of the human form since the
beginning of time. The University
Museum of Art honors the nude in a
special exhibit running December 11-
lebruary 27.
Anne Lockhart, curator of the
Museum, has chosen approximately 85
nudes from the University's permanent
collection for the show. The exhibition,
Lockhart says, will be a "very good
*ay to show off the richness of the
collection," which includes a total of
nearly ten thousand pieces:
The exhibit is "about looking at the
nude," says Lockhart, rather than
being an academic study. She has
chosen works from a wide range of
media including painting, sculpture,
photography, and prints in order to set
up interesting visual comparisons.
As you walk into the exhibit on the
second floor of the museum, the first
thing you will see is a 19th-century pain-
ting, A Visit to the Gallery by P.C.
Gilardi. The painting shows the ex-
pressions on the faces of several proper
ladies observing a statue of Venus.
ILooks of feigned indifference to self-
atisfied discovery are on their faces.

The painting is a well-chosen fron-
tispiece to the exhibition because it is a
reminder of the narrow-minded views
toward the nude in past centuries.
Perhaps after seeing the embarrassed
side-long stares of the ladies, we can
more fully appreciate the exhibit by
appreciating the more honest attitude
of modern society.
