Their sound evolves over the course of the next several albums and Vince Clark's sensibility was more befitting of his future projects Yazoo and Erasure. I've been a fan of Mode since the 80's and I have always overlooked this album.
What a mistake. This album is immediately addictive, listenable, and full of electronic pop genius. If you are a fan BUY this album now. One person found this helpful. One of the best albums from DM and the only one with Vince Clark as a band member. Over the Years there has been quite a few versions Album) this released. My least favorite is the U. Release which also has the lowest track count. This UK release is quite good with extra tracks Album) the sound quality is fine compared to my Sire Mute lp from Poland which has a different version of Just Cant Get Enough which is my favorite.
The music may seem dated to some but I enjoy and play it frequently. I recommend it highly. Us pressing vinyl wavey skips a little.
The SACD sounds great comparable to the 5. See all reviews from the United States. Top international reviews. I bought the vinyl reissue of Violator and was greatly impressed by the audio and the classy packaging.
On the back of that I ordered Speak and Spell. Was it as good an effort as Violator? My original copy of this LP looks and sounds vastly inferior in every respect. Thank you for your feedback. Sorry, we failed to record your vote. Please try again. Enjoyable surround mix, which reveals some synth lines I hadn't noticed before. This brings a freshness to some songs that now sound a bit flat in simple stereo. Not always what I'd have put on the extra New Life - Depeche Mode - Speak & Spell (CD - maybe missed a trick or two here - but this is a subjective opinion, and I'm very glad they've been done at all.
It was worth the effort guys. Was there not enough space unlikely, I have SACDs that last much longer or is it some obscure copyright reason concerning the format? Why complain? I have the original CD with 16 tracks so it is not a problem, Album) a simple question - why the discrepancy? The disc redeems itself with a very interesting documentary - in widescreen, yaayyy! CD arrived in good time but after opening case I found that Disc 2 was unable to play. Disc 1 no problems at all.
A little dated in parts, but ground breaking in others. Their most underrated album by the music media. A good album. Great to have these tunes in my life and good service. Thank you! Load more international reviews. Very good quality really for a reissue, good Serious from Amazon.
Its mode its awesome. Fine collection of songs from The 'Mode Reminds me of. This is a definitive album. I love it. Reminds me of school. Took me back to the early 80s. Really good gram version of an absolute classic! Very happy. This was their first album but it sounds more like Erasure and Yazoo because most of the songs are written by Vince Clarke.
There was one track I did not like. I was also disappointed that 'Photograph' was not the version I am familiar with. It is one of my favourite tracks ever. I'll have to get it on MP3. Good album. Topping up my dM collection. Some simply classic tracks on this. You've read the top international reviews. There's a problem loading this menu right now. Learn more about Amazon Prime.

The album is significantly lighter in tone and melody than their later work, a direction which can largely be attributed to Clarke's writing.
After he left, Martin Gore took over songwriting duties, writing almost all of the band's material. Later albums written by him would explore darker subjects and melodies. More details.
