Everything Counts is catchy pop, but like the last couple of albums there's still a lot of room for maturity here.

The environmental themes are a bit half baked and the lyricism is still growing but Construction time shows Depeche Mode moving in the right direction.

Depeche Mode's third album, is one of their albums stuck in between their disposable pop sound and their more arty and serious albums to come. It's ok, but certainly not one of their best, although it includes an essential track in, everything counts. The rest is fine, but looking back this was clearly a transitional record. Not bad.

If this is a middling Depeche Mode album, then I'm gonna be in heaven for the next week, because they're all I'll be listening to. it's all layers of synth riffs, pads, drum machine, and strange noises. I think they're using ping pong balls on 'Pipeline', and I love it.
Top Tracks: I can't choose, honestly, they're all so layered and pretty and intriguing.

The point where I got into Depeche, true, there are some weak songs but hating on it is a bit like criticising your childhood teddy bear for having bad stitching. Leave it alone!!

Starting to sound more like the Depeche Mode we know and love but the songwriting just isn't there yet.
