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

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.

Wow, I just gave this a spin today and I forgot how good this album was. I wouldn't say my favorite Depeche Mode songs are on this album but as a complete album this is tough to beat.

Their best imo. Also 3 of their best songs (if not their 3 best). Those raise the counter as like always with DM half the album are fillers.
