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.

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.

With this release DM finally became the truly sleazy sweaty rock band they always secretly desired to be (or at least frontman Dave Gahan did). For the followers of DM through their career this album certinaly came as a shock - it certainly did to me. But when you work through the initial resistance this album shows itself to be a truly memorable achievement. Whilst Violator saw DM master their skills and cement their position as the masters of electronic rock, this recording showed them pushing the envelope. From I Feel You's screeching guitars and pulsating energy (check out the Afghan Swamp Surgery mix on Maxi CD for a super treatment of this song!) to the stripped back Condemnation Depeche Mode moved into areas no one would have thought. Apparently recorded under extremely tense conditions with addictions and works stresses - the tensions seem to emanate from the album. The production on a DM album has never been so good and Alan Wilder's departure is sorely missed. This album clearly showed the manic obsession the guy applied to all DM productions. Every track is different and every track shows a different side to the band from the classic synth warmth of songs such as Walking in My Shoes and Higher Love to the electro frenzy of Rush and then to the soulful Get Right With Me and the super sexy In Your Room. This album shimmers, rocks, grinds and crunches. As a long time fan and owner of all their CDs - this is the CD I always come back to me when I want to release some tension. A True Classic.

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!!
