5.0 out of 5 stars In a Sea of Sin You Fun the Happiest Girl April 13 2004
Format:Audio CD
"World In My Eyes" may be one of the best CD-singles DM has ever put out. Sure, remixers from the KLF, the Beloved and Francois Kevorkian took their turn with the title track but that's not what makes this single such a great buy, it's the b-sides!!! Ah yes, those oft obscure studio leftovers that usually end up on the cutting room floor due to album length, producer choice or studio pressure.
"World In My Eyes" is not really CD single at all but more of an EP. "Sea of Sin", one of the best Depeche Mode songs from the Violator era and "Happiest Girl, yet another song in my top 10 DM songs of all time are both contained within... and they're remixed. Makes you wonder what the album versions would have sounded like. The only thing missing that would have made this single perfect is a remix of "Halo."
So buy with confidence and play those songs for the less informed! And, when they ask, "What album is that on?" Tell them it's one of those things that only a true DM fan would know.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perhaps the best Depeche Mode single Dec 18 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
For buying this single you get not 1 but 2 non-album songs, Happiest Girl and Sea of Sin which are both great. Coupled with Dangerous off the Personal Jesus single I think you have the top 3 DM non-album tracks ever made. Plus, World In My Eyes is a great song and the remixes are pretty cool as well, specially the Oil Tankers Mix.
One cool thing is how you can kind of see the evolutionary process of the songs as they were written. Happiest Girl is a distinctly different song than World in My Eyes, but their bassline/beat is extremely similar. It seems both songs were actually 1 song in the early stages, and then as Martin Gore developed this one peice of music it split into 2 different entities. It's not often that you can get such a revealing view into the song writing process just by listening to the finished products.
Anyway, this single has 3 great songs, 2 of which you won't find on the album, plus a couple cool remixes of the first song. Together with the Personal Jesus and Enjoy the Silence singles, you get 5 extra songs that weren't on the album, plus a handfull of cool remixes of the title songs. If you're at all interested in DM's non album "B-sides" this is the place to start.

5.0 out of 5 stars Let me help you make up your mind on this one... July 11 2002
Format:Audio CD
I must admit that I am an avid Depeche Mode fan. I love all of their albums and have such a fetish for their music that I decided that not only did I have to have every album song of theirs, but I also needed every remixed version of each song and every B-side. I'm not exactly made of money so my collection is no where near complete but I have accumulated a sizeable amount of Depeche Mode singles already and despite my love of the band, I usually find their singles to be a bit disappointing.
Most remixes of Depeche Mode hits tend to be a little lengthy, which CAN be a good thing if given the substance but many remixes tend to simply drag on and carry little or no resemblence to the song that you bought the cd for. Another thing that bothers me is that I always get all excited over the B-sides that I am getting on the single, only to be let down with a short instrumental " something " when I was longing for ( and expecting ) to hear another masterfully crafted masterpiece complete with Dave Gahan teaseing me with his dark, sensual, pounding voice belting out enviable poetic lyrics of romantic cynicism and lust ( exhales ). ...Not that their instrumentals are bad or anything; they just lack the two key elements that help make Depeche Mode what it is and give it it's unique sound. Without Martin Gore's lyrics, and Dave 's voice...I feel well...Violated ( no pun intended ).
So this is the reality of many of the DM singles that I have purchased. I'm not even sure what It was that lead me to choose THIS single as my next DM purchase. " World in my Eyes " is a great song but I wouldn't consider it one of my all time favorites. I didn't expect much of this cd but I decided that I had to have it anyway because as mediocre as it may turn out to be, no DM purchase will ever be a waste of money.

4.0 out of 5 stars Buy this for it's B-sides! July 4 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is a wonderful single. World in my Eyes is one of the best DM songs out there, my imediate favorite off of Violator. first of all, there are 7 tracks on the single. The remixes of World in my eyes are alright. The Oil Tank mix is interesting techno, but not worthy of being associated with the song. I like the Mode To Joy mix a lot better, it's closer to the origonal. The real treasures on this single are its B-sides, The best of all DM b-sides i've heard. 2 mixes of Sea of Sin are included, both are really great, the title of the song describes the whole song perfectly, i love it! there's one mix of Happiest Girl, which is a great song. The song has a night club sound to it. both b-sides are really dark and sensual. i'd say the best lyric on the whole cd is "you look cheaper and cheaper as we sink deeper and deeper." (sea of sin)

5.0 out of 5 stars A compilation of great DJ's to mix a great band June 19 2000
Format:Audio CD
This maxi single is a great compilation of future excellent DJ's. Francois Kevorkian, Jon Marsh and Dr. Alex Patterson.
World in my eyes' mixes are great, particularly the one of Jon Marsh from the Beloved, which is track number 5. The other songs on this single could only be descripted as great. Happiest girl is excelent, both versions are perfectly mixed. The first remix of this song was mixed by Dr. Alex Patterson, if you like electronic music this makes this CD a must have. Finally, Sea of sin, not only great for a DM fan, this song is perfect, the final mix of this maxi single is one of the best mixes I have ever heard. I can't compare this single with the others of Violator because they all are great.

5.0 out of 5 stars You MUST have this for "Sea of Sin". No joke, -GREAT TRACK-
It's very simple. Somehow, when they cut the album 'Violator', the song 'Sea of Sin' didn't make the cut. *That was a mistake*. Read more
