Very tremendous and visceral synthpop/electronic album. Depeche Mode's best and most popular release.

Their magnum opus. Arguably one of the best albums of the decade, if not all time.

The songs are mostly well crafted but I don't feel a need to listen to this album again almost 30 years later.

Arguably one of the best albums ever, violator is Depeche Mode's magnum opus. What is truly impressive is the amount of emotion that can be carried in only nine tracks.

The best in a great sequel of albums through decades. Great memories of dancing at Medusa of the old city in Stockholm

From ArrogantMarxist 03/09/2017 00:34
The best Depeche Mode album ever produced, and one of the best albums in general. Martin Gore's lyrics in Enjoy The Silence inspired me to write songs.

Will forever hold an important place in my heart.
