3.0 out of 5 stars Great album-average mix Oct. 12 2006
Format:Audio CD
In my opinion this is the most underrated DM album. I always thought that Martin Gore may have hit his peak as a song writer on Songs of Faith and Devotion, but the album was mired in the well-documented negativity that began during the recording process: David Gahan's heroin use, Alan Wilder wanting out, and Fletch's inability to hold everyone together. That all said, the songs ARE great. When I heard that this was being released in the same high definition 96k DTS 5.1 mix that made the recent Violator and Music for the Masses re-releases so amazing, I immediately snapped it up. But I am sad to say that the 5.1 mix lacks the astonishing clarity of the previous re-releases. the bass is heavy and muddy. As a result, the the vocals, keys and drum parts are at times buried in the mix. Often the surround speakers are not used at all! There is also far less imaginative use of the multichannels...often the rears are just used for "echo" of the mains. Sometimes the bvox are positioned in the rear, sometimes they're just in stereo. I really hoped that they would have spent more time taking the complex mix of this album and presenting it in an exciting way (like they did on the previous surround mixes). It's a shame and a missed opportunity to re-present these great songs to the world in a fresh way.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Revolution for the band!!! April 20 2004
Format:Audio CD
This album marked the end of an era for Depeche Mode. Every album up to this one was primarily synthesizers, keyboards, and a drum machine. This marked the beginning of the band using live percussion and they took the focus away from the keyboard. Although the keyboard is still extremely important in this album, they tried to focus on guitar use more than ever before. The songs are different from the band's earlier sound, but still great:
1. I Feel You - The song that starts the album was also the first single from the album. It's a fairly repetative song with a great beat that is fun to move to.
2. Walking in My Shoes - The second song on the album and the second single from it. This, in my opinion, is one of the best songs on the album. It has a great chorus line and the lyrics are wonderful.
3. Condemnation - The third single from the album, I find it to be, musically, the weakest song on the album. I'm sure I'll get shunned for saying this, but it is how I feel.
4. Mercy In You - My favorite song on this album, hands down. This song is wonderful. The rhythm and beat are great, the lyrics are great... Did I mention it is great?
5. Judas - A very powerful song, as the name would imply. Martin does the singing on this one to bring a very eerie sound of betrayal. Love the stuff!!!
6. In Your Room - Another single from the album. David's vocals on this echo in your head for hours. This song is great. It is the perfect center piece for the album.
7. Get Right With Me - A solid piece of music. This song perfectly fits after "In Your Room" as a transition into "Rush".
8. Rush - This is tied for second with "Walking In My Shoes" on my favorite list for this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars What can I say... June 16 2004
Format:Audio CD
What really IS there to say? This album is truly amazing. Everyone has their fav DM album, at the same time i don't truly understand why a lot of DM fans HATE this album. I like the fact that the band wanted to create the music to "force" Dave's voice to sound more powerful and melodic despite the heroin addiction really messing up his voice. In some ways the raspy voice in some parts compliments the mood of the album.
I Feel You- Great start.
Walking In My Shoes- Probably one of the best DM singles imo
Condemnation- wow. dave sounds painful in this one
Mercy In You- guitar riffs are awesome, ok song.
Judas- beautiful
In Your Room- I actually like the singles version more but it's still pretty good
Get Right With Me- eh..it's aight i guess
Rush- This song kicks
One Caress- Martin has a great voice, love the song
Higher Love- this song is uplifting to me...love it
BUY This album!! If you're open about music then sit and listen to this!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Their Best Work. 10 out of 5. March 28 2004
By DMG
Format:Audio CD
I am a chill, nonconfrontational guy. But when I see people dissing this album here on Amazon, my blood boils and I want a way to meet them and have a very heated conversation disagreeing with them and telling them they are complete and utter idiots for not liking the album. It is Depeche Mode's best work to date. The sound has not aged at all, and if it was released today, no one would raise eyebrows wondering if it was really made in present time. The entire sound is completely original and unique. Everything comes together...guitar, synth, vocals, everything. The sound is incredibly edgy and melodic and amazing at the same time. Just incredible. The music has true emotion and heart, nothing sounds fake or routine or contrived or badly programmed. It's real and a perfect emotional overflow of genius. Even all the remixed and b-sides from this era are great. The maxi singles are worth your money. As for the album at hand, songs like "Walking In My Shoes," "Mercy In You," "In Your Room," "Rush," and "Higher Love" are my favorites. But everything's great. A+ with a bar on top of the + to make it infinite. Out of 900 something CDs I currently own, this one has been played the most by far. Can never get sick of it, never gets old. Has held its own ever since I bought it when i was 14 back in July of '95. HOLLLAAA. Once again, Depeche Mode's best work. But, if you're new to Depeche Mode, I actually recommend starting with Black Celebration and Music For The Masses, then Violator, and then this album. This will give you the chance to see a progression. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Probably the most epic of all Depeche Mode's releases!
My favorite album to date from DM, and I REALLY loved Violator. Considering this is the last album with the traditional lineup including Wilder, it is bittersweet to listen to. Read more

Strange, I thought it was really bad. Actually DM hasn't put out an audibly palatible release since Violator. It's too bad I used to really love them and could always rely on them. Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful 90's album for a formerly 80's band
Songs of Faith and Devotion is Depeche Mode's second official 90's release. The first being "Violator" released in early 1990. Violator is complimented by "Songs" quite well. Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Wildest Ambitions
It's interesting how much Songs of Faith and Devotion polarizes Depeche Mode's fan base. Critics point to the band's middling attempts at gospel and the use of guitars and drums... Read more
