I'll probably pick up Violator from the first batch, as I've always loved that album and can't wait to hear it remastered.

And when SOFAD gets released, I'll get that one, too.

It's a shame the CD version won't have any extras.

I would LOVE to hear "Music For The Masses" and "Violator" in 5.1 Surround Sound. I'm sure they would just sound AMAZING . . . but I don't have a surround sound system so at this point, as the song from "Ultra" goes, it's kind of "Useless".

From this batch, I'll be picking up Violator as soon as I can and then get MFTM later on. Eventually, I plan on getting all of the remasters from BC thru Ultra.

I went to look at them last night, but for $23 I was a bit put off, to be honest. You can get a DualDisc from certain artists that can hold just as much material and find them on sale for under $15.

And I agree with BVS about the bonus tracks. Why do they have to be on the DVD side? It's only audio, anyway.

although if you know how to rip dvd audio, you can easily make your own mp3s.

True enough, but it still doesn't make sense for audio-only tracks to be placed on the DVD side, IMO.

These remastered albums are like 25 bucks each! They do seem to come with bonus tracks, dvd and what not.

Anyway I picked up Black Celebration yesterday. The older (not re-mastered) copy was on sale for 11.99. I'd actually been planning on getting Music For The Masses. But it seems I know more songs on BC, so... Listening to it now.

Yeah, the price is steep. I'm waiting for a good CD sale somewhere before I buy any.

New Batch

I know this thread is probably buried but I don't know maybe I will make another post and then that one and this one can merge.

Anyway I got Some Great Reward from the new batch of remasters out October 3rd. It is awesome. I really liked the DVD too. Since I was born in 1984 I have had to rediscover all this great old Depeche Mode stuff.

I do agree that the price is steep. One thing that I did was pre order them. I got SGR for like 18 dollars instead of the 25 dollar list price.

If I can find a good deal I will get Speak and Spell and Violator, maybe more as soon as I can afford it.
