Personally, they're not one of my favorites. However, I understand the greatness and respect they get even if they're not in my wheelhouse. Violator though is a masterpiece no matter what you think of the band.

A highly influential electronic act, I love how they began to take a darker atmosphere and darker lyrics in their music. That made them more interesting. Black Celebrations, Music For The Masses, Violater, and Songs of Faith and Devotion is their creative peak

A realy interesting band that gets underrated by none usual listeners. The more they talk about dark topics the more popular they get, this beacuse of the intense atmosphere around the deep lyrics and unique voice. While several albums are kinda mediocre, none of them is actualy bad, meanwhile their singles are allways great.

Fathers of dark pop, and best electronic band of the '80s. Mostly influenced by Kraftwerk but, on the other hand, DM influenced the whole german electronic scene. Synthpop bands as Diorama, Seabound, De/Vision, Beborn Beton, Covenant, Deine Lakaien, Wolfsheim, Rotersand etc, they wouldn't even exist if there wasn't DM. Their greatest works were between '86 and '93, and their greatest mistake...they let Alan Wilder go, in '94.

Without fear of being wrong, I dare say that Depeche Mode is one of the 10 most influential bands in history, and an underrated band.
