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. [3]

    Violator and this one are their best work, and two of the best records of all time for sure.

    I think prefer Black Celebration over it, I think it is more dancy, you know, but that's a great album. I even have it on vinyl, but A side is better than B. Nothing is the best track on B side.

    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.
