About this album

Music for the Masses is the sixth proper studio album by Depeche Mode. Released by Mute Records on September 28, 1987, it provided the band with mainstream success in the United States for the first time since Some Great Reward, and the new styles of music that appeared on the album and its predecessor Black Celebration formed the foundation for their breakthrough effort, Violator. These three are widely considered to be the band’s peak in both lyrical and musical sense, attributed to Gore’s maturing songcraft and Wilder’s synthesized orchestrations.

It was supported by the For the Masses tour, which made up for the first of Depeche Mode’s live albums, 101.

    That's an excellent record, for sure. At the level of Violator.

    Is there a better DM album than this? IMO: 1. Music For The Masses 2. Violator 3. Black Celebration 4. Speak & Spell (yes, you read that right!). 5. Songs Of Faith & Devotion.

    Fantastic album, but I think Black Celebration is probably better (and often overlooked). I like the second half better than the first, apart from Never Let Me Down Again (which is my favourite DM single).

    i always thought depeche mode was a solid band after being exposed to them so much growing up, but never gave them much more credit than that ..decided to pick up violator and this one and after a few listens to both ..wow i can see why they dominated the 80s
