Sister of Night is their best song that no one ever talks about.

^ And Dave was strung out on heroin when he recorded the vocals. Good times

So far it hasn't surfaced
But I'm sure it exists
It just takes a while to travel
From your head to your fist

I didn't know that video existed until just now...

Don't think it's Anton Corbijn though. Are you sure? It looks more like someone trying to look like an Anton Corbiin video

Listening to Music For The Masses now which is clearly a much more mature album.
Different song writers. Vince Clarke leaving was the best thing to ever happen to them.

Did you know the Yaz song Only You was almost a Depeche Mode song?

I certainly didn't. Kind of wonder what that would've sounded like in their hands now.

I love that song.

Violator. I have stated my love for this album many times, and I still think it might be the finest album of the 90s. It's at least in the top three for me. Listening to it again right now, I am struck by how immaculately paced the whole thing is. The transition from Waiting for the Night to Enjoy the Silence, for example, shifts the tempo abruptly, but nonetheless it feels completely seamless. And that's really the brilliance of this album: the sterility and mechanism of the production juxtaposes perfectly with the humanity of the lyrics: mainly the pain in yearning for something that is always just beyond your reach.

Erasure has a couple fabulously gay songs (not to mention making Robot Unicorn Attack the greatest internet game ever released), but they don't hold a candle to Depeche Mode.
