Yeah, Songs is my second favorite after MFTM but I don't think it's representative enough to be a good intro album. Would be a little misleading.

101 is amazing. I didn't even think of that. Would be weird to listen to a live album first but not a total Cobbler move.

Yeah, that song is an absolute monster. Maybe my favorite from them. Album wise, I'm still partial to Violator, which has a hell of a foreboding atmosphere to complement the parade of great songs.

Plus, Never Let Me Down is one of the best album openers of the decade.

Cool, thanks guys, will start with Music, then get to Songs Of... and Violator at some stage, I imagine.

It's probably my favorite DM song.

But as just a recently converted fan myself (like right after Delta Machine came out, although not all cobblerish because of that album. I like it well enough, but it was more like "hmmm i need to look into this band" rather than hearing a new album making me into a fan...but i digress), Songs of Faith and Devotion did a pretty good job on selling the band for me.

I'd actually go in order with those three albums - Masses, Violator, and Songs. You get a bit of an idea how they evolved during that time.

Then I'd expand out both ways from there.

What I don't understand is why they still refuse to play people are people. I did hear that they got tired of it after playing a ton during the entire. I have only seen them once on the touring the Angel tour. Anyone know who is opening for them?

Corbijn shared images from the album artwork/photography on his instragram account.

Looks amazing, at least he's still doing awesome stuff with one of his longtime collaborators.

They've said some time ago they don't like the song, it hasn't been played since the Masses tour

But I just wish that opinion would change. The masses tour was almost thirty years ago. Plus I was 4. I want to hear it live.

So they have the track listing available
Depeche Mode / Spirit | superdeluxeedition

Do you think it's worth eight dollars more on Amazon for 5 remixes? I would love to listen to it on vinyl but I haven't converted over.

I'd love to hear it as well, along with New Life but it isn't going to happen

They rarely go further back than 1986 on setlists- although since they didn't do it last time I would imagine Everything Counts will be on the setlist this time. Other than that it will be the usual suzpects

Depeche Mode remixes have been utter garbage for the last 20 years so wouldn't expect them to be worth the extra money.

I guess it makes you grateful that U2 digs into their early stuff.

There is a Depeche Mode bar in Tallinn. It is the most niche place I have ever been. They literally only play Depeche Mode.

So this thread has been around a long time, 8 years, and I'm noticing less excitement for their new album. I've bought their last three albums and haven't been disappointed.

My depeche mode journey started with playing the angel then saw the touring the angel tour. Then I borrowed the singles 86-98 and bought 81-85. Then the remastered versions of some great reward and violator. I've been listening to songs of faith and devotion and home. What should I get next?

Activity on this board as a whole has decreased noticeably over the years.

Music For The Masses is my personal favorite album of theirs, and 101 is a superb live double-album of their historic 1988 concert at the Rose Bowl. In my opinion, you can't go wrong with either.
