DEPECHE MODE; Albums to choose.
Speak & Spell
The 1981 debut album hurled fresh-faced Depeche Mode into the charts. Songs such as Just Can't Get Enough and New Life seem a million miles away from the muscle-bound electronica of today.
No longer the teen idols when they first arrived, this 1986 album showed Mode turning their back on their pop roots to deliver a darker sound that would be a shape of things to come. Dressed In Black and A Question Of Lust being cases in point.
Martin Gore wrote all the tracks as Depeche Mode came of age with an album in 1990 that featured three of their all-time greatest hits - Personal Jesus, Policy Of Truth and Enjoy The Silence.
Sounds Of The Universe
Mode's last album in 2009 cemented their status as synth-rock survivors and featured three bona-fide singles - Wrong, Peace and a double A-sided Fragile Tension/Hole to Feed.
