Still an above average album overall, but Leave in Silence is the only track I truly enjoy.

A broken frame has some musical progression for Depeche Mode, but easily the worst writing of their career.

Depeche Mode's second album and first without Vince Clarke is probably their weakest album. It's okay, but understandably uncertain. Acceptable considering the situation but more will certainly be expected the next time round.
