How can Violator be ranked higher than this. Much darker and more cohesive, no filler on-board here.

At the time of it's release music for the masses was considered Depeche mode's greatest album. it's not hard to see with its tight keyboard and booming presence.

One of the best cold-pornographic groups ever. And lonely

Depeche's to darkness is complete with Music for the Masses. With songs like Behind the Wheel, Never Let Me Down Again, and Strangelove. Depeche continue to produce their best work (which started with Some Great Reward or Black Celebration)

It's not as consistently breathtaking as Violator, but still a cool listen. Still, Never Let Me Down Again is as incredible as any single song that they've done.

In my opinion, music for the masses, is the best Depeche Mode album. It's the most consistent of all their records, and it captures the band at the moment they move away from their electro pop roots and just before they bring that industrial rock sound to their music. Strangelove, is superb, as is, never let me down again, behind the wheel, and, little 15. It's just great from start to finish. Excellent.

I understand the fuss about Depeche Mode. They are at the top of their genre - I just find their sound a little trapped in their era.

"Nothing" is a pleasant surprise on side 2, to go along with a great
Side one.
