Editors’ Notes

"All I ever wanted, all I ever needed, is here, in my arms," you whisper to her with twinkling eyes and a touch typically reserved for Faberge eggs. And then, suddenly... slap! Woops. You must be on a date with a recovering Depeche Mode fan, still prone to fits of rage when reminded how promising synth-pop seemed at the start of the '90s, back when the Brits released this, their undisputable masterpiece for the beaten, the broken, the melancholic masses who also happen to enjoy clubbing in the pale moonlight. Let's be honest: Even the lesser known survivors of this album are better than most of today's groove-riding mope music, from the whirring, windswept "Halo" — complete with what sounds like a snippet of Nine Inch Nails' "Head Like a Hole" — to "Policy of Truth," a swaggering single that rivals even "Enjoy the Silence" in retrospect. Not "Personal Jesus" though; it's on its own special plane, one inhabited by Ennio Morricone and a makeup-free Marilyn Manson.

Customer Reviews


Awesome, It's just as a clear and crisp to the 5.1 DVD audio mix!!! A true DM fan will want this, the differnce is truely noticeable. Despite the fact there is no booklet, but then again we want the music!!! And with the B-sides added to it, is a very huge plus!!!!

sweetest perfection

I had forgotten how great this album is, but it's virtually perfect from start to finish. One of those rare albums where EVERY song is great. Regardless of how you feel about synth-pop, club music or depeche mode in general, these are just incredibly well-written, catchy, melodic and intensely moving songs. You can't help but move when you hear these and they still hold up 20 years later. Solid, strong, awesome - You can't go wrong with this album!

Best Value!

If you have a choice between the original release of Violator and this, buy this! They are both the same price. Stereo sound + EXCELLENT B-sides (including three of DM's best: Sea of Sin, Happiest Girl, and Dangerous) make this an excellent value. Heck, if you own the CD version (and what DM fan doesn't?), buy this for the stereo sound and the additional six songs. One of my favorite iTunes purchases ever.

Genre: Pop

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

Originally a product of Britain's new romantic movement, Depeche Mode went on to become the quintessential electropop band of the 1980s. One of the first acts to establish a musical identity based completely around the use of synthesizers, they began their existence as a bouncy dance-pop outfit but gradually developed a darker, more dramatic sound that ultimately positioned them as one of the most successful alternative bands of their era. The roots of Depeche Mode date to 1976, when Basildon, England-based...
