Depeche Mode has always been a huge blind spot for me. And I know that's kinda funny being a massive U2 fan because many U2 fans love Depeche Mode and vice versa. They're both artsy, moody European bands from the same era.

Well, I finally had my first listen to VIOLATOR and it is gorgeous. Think I was only two or three songs into it when I said out loud to myself "This is really good."

Standout track for me on first listen was probably "Waiting For The Night." It feels like a song I've known for years yet I heard it for the first time today.

i used to listen to this guy a lot when i was in high school and college because he came from my hometown, but once i moved away i sort of lost track of his music. the last day or two i've been listening to some of the stuff he's made in the last 10 or so years and holy hell some of it's really good.



the last 3:00 of this song

You should prioritize the albums that bookend that one, Music For The Masses and Songs of Faith and Devotion.

Exactly what I wanted to post.

They're a great live band, so 101 is a must, along with their video live recordings such as Devotional.

Black Celebration is probably my favorite, followed by Music for the Masses and Ultra, actually. Their highest peaks are on Violator though. Tough to argue with those singles, overplayed though they may be.

Violator is a masterpiece. As much as I love DM, I don't think they are much of an albums band, though their singles discography is about as good as it gets.

Violator, Black Celebration & Songs of Faith and Devotion are my favorite DM albums.

I hope they continue touring every few years, still haven’t seen them live.

Don’t forget Some Great Reward.

I disagree that they’re not an albums band, as there aren’t many clunkers on the titles listed so far.

But if I could only desert island one of their LPs, it would probably be 101 because it contains most of their best pre-1990 tracks and the energy level is pretty damned high.

Even as someone who prefers MFTM and SOFAD over Violator, I can see where you’re going with that, because those singles all hold up really well and also happen to be the album’s four best tracks. Flood’s production is immaculate. If pressed, though, I still might take Never Let Me Down Again/Strangelove/Behind the Wheel/Nothing (the latter not a single but easily could/should have been).
