  • Another one of those bands who missed the right time to dissolve. Everything since "Ultra" is bland and mediocre. It makes me sad to listen to their recent albums - for all the wrong reasons.
  • baldowl, I'm glad you've become disillusioned with giving up on Depeche Mode.
  • the best
  • there's magic in their music
  • My new year's disillusion is to finally give up on Depeche Mode. Alan Wilder was the talent behind their best songs and albums. Martin's voice has become cloying. Who the hell told Dave Gahan he could write songs? Do yourselves a favor, vintage DM fans: check out Mesh.
  • I've had Music for the Masses from such a long time (because of Never Let Me Down Again and Strangelove) but I've only listened to it 'accurately' today. I'm amazed how stupid I was, that I didn't do it earlier. Every song on this album is so... dark and depressing and they make me 'drown inside myself'. I just love it.
  • Have I hit a raw nerve??
  • I guess Alan was the musical genius behind their greatest albums!!
  • Love this band forever!
  • Get your kicks on route 66! ;-)
