Construction Time Again
New - LP - 1-233852
Sealed 2021 Gatefold Remaster. "The Full Addition Of Alan Wilder To Depeche Mode's Lineup Created A Perfect Troika That Would Last Another 11 Years, As The Combination Of Martin Gore's Songwriting, Wilder's Arranging, And David Gahan's Singing And Live Star Power Resulted In An Ever More Compelling Series Of Albums And Singles. Construction Time Again, The New Lineup's First Full Effort, Is A Bit Hit And Miss Nonetheless, But When It Does Hit, It Does So Perfectly. Right From The Album's First Song, "Love, In Itself," Something Is Clearly Up; Depeche Never Sounded Quite So Thick With Its Sound Before, With Synths Arranged Into A Mini-orchestra/horn Section And Real Piano And Acoustic Guitar Spliced In At Strategic Points. Two Tracks Later, "Pipeline" Offers The First Clear Hint Of An Increasing Industrial Influence (The Bandmembers Were Early Fans Of Einstürzende Neubauten), With Clattering Metal Samples And Oddly Chain Gang-like Lyrics And Vocals. The Album's Clear Highlight Has To Be "Everything Counts," A Live Staple For Years, Combining A Deceptively Simple, Ironic Lyric About The Music Business With A Perfectly Catchy But Unusually Arranged Blending Of More Metallic Scraping Samples And Melodica Amid Even More Forceful Funk/hip-hop Beats. Elsewhere, On "Shame" And "Told You So," Gore's Lyrics Start Taking On More Of The Obsessive Personal Relationship Studies That Would Soon Dominate His Writing. Wilder's Own Songwriting Contributions Are Fine Musically, But Lyrically, "Preachy" Puts It Mildly, Especially The Environment-friendly "The Landscape Is Changing"." AMG Review By Ned Raggett. more

Sealed Latest Repress Of the '07 Remaster. 2LP 180gm Edition Housed In A Deluxe Gatefold With Custom Inner Sleeves. "It's Rare To Find Bands Capable Of Keeping Their Own Best Qualities To The Fore While Trying Something New Each Time Out, But Depeche Mode Demonstrate That Balance In Full On The Marvelous Exciter. Arguably The First Album Made By The Group As A Cohesive Unit Since Violator (And Bearing Some Resemblance To That Record In Overall Title And Song Names -- Compare "The Sweetest Condition" With "The Sweetest Perfection"), Exciter Finds The Trio Again Balancing Pop Catchiness With Experimental Depths. As With Ultra, An Outside Producer Helps Focus The End Results In New, Intriguing Directions -- In This Case, Said Producer Is Mark Bell, Known For His Work With Björk But Also As Part Of Warp Records' Flagship Act Lfo, Which Always Acknowledged Their Own Debut To Depeche. Bell's Ear For Minimal, Crisp Beats And Quick, Subtle Arrangements And Changes Suit Martin Gore's Songs Beautifully. If There Are Few Storming Arena-shaking Numbers This Time Out, The Exquisite Delicacy Throughout Is Addicting, With Gore's Guitar Providing Slippery And Stinging Leads To The Smoky, Romantic Flow Of Exciter. "When The Body Speaks" Is A Particular Winner, His Gentle Work And A Backing String Section Combining Just Right. David Gahan's Voice, Already Audibly Benefiting From Lessons On Ultra, Is Even More Supple And Passionate Than Before, Ranging From The Fuller Delivery On The Snaky Charm Of "Shine" To The Haunting Album-closer, "Goodnight Lovers," A Romantic Lullaby With Perfect Counterpoint Backing Vocals. Gore's Own Singing Remains Equally Fine, As Does His Lyrical Obsessions On, Well, Obsession -- "Breathe," Which Quotes More Bible Names Per Verse Than Most Preachers, Makes For A Good Example On Both Fronts. When The Band Fully Crank It Up, The Results Work There Too -- "The Dead Of Night" Makes For A Far Superior Nod To Gore's Glam Roots And Depeche's Own Industrial Dance Descendants Than Songs Of Faith And Devotion's "Rush" Did."

"People Are People" Appears Here, But Finds Itself Outclassed By Some Of Depeche Mode's Undisputed Classics, Most Especially The Moody, Beautiful "Somebody," A Gore-Sung Piano Ballad That Mixes Its Wit And Emotion Skillfully; "Master And Servant," An Amped-Up, Slamming Dance Track That Conflates Sexual And Economic Politics To Sharp Effect; And The Closing "Blasphemous Rumors," A Slow-Building Anthemic Number Supporting One Of Gore's Most Cynical Lyrics, Addressing A Suicidal Teen Who Finds God Only To Die Soon Afterward. Even Lesser-Known Tracks Like The Low-Key Pulse Of "Lie To Me" And The Weirdly Dreamy "It Doesn't Matter" Showcase An Increasingly Confident Band. Alan Wilder's Arrangements Veer From The Big To The Stripped Down, But Always With Just The Right Touch, Such As The Crowd Samples Bubbling Beneath "Somebody" Or The Call/Response A Cappella Start To "Master And Servant." With Reward, David Gahan's Singing Style Found The Métier It Was Going To Stick With For The Next Ten Years, And While It's Never Gone Down Well With Some Ears, It Still Has A Compelling Edge To It That Suits The Material Well.” Ned Raggett, AMG. more

Speak & Spell
New - LP - SRK 3642
Sealed 1981 Original. Their Debut Release. “Though Probably Nobody Fully Appreciated It At The Time -- Perhaps Least Of All The Band! -- Depeche Mode's Debut Is At Once Both A Conservative, Functional Pop Record And A Groundbreaking Release. While Various Synth Pioneers Had Come Before -- Gary Numan, Early Human League, Late-'70s Euro-Disco, And Above All Kraftwerk All Had Clear Influence On Speak & Spell -- Depeche Became The Undisputed Founder Of Straight-Up Synth Pop With The Album's 11 Songs, Light, Hooky, And Danceable Numbers About Love, Life, And Clubs. For All The Claims About "Dated" '80s Sounds From Rock Purists, It Should Be Noted That The Basic Guitar/Bass/Drums Lineup Of Rock Is Almost 25 Years Older Than The Catchy Keyboard Lines And Electronic Drums Making The Music Here. That Such A Sound Would Eventually Become Ubiquitous During The Reagan Years, Spawning Lots Of Crud Along The Way, Means The Band Should No More Be Held To Blame For That Than Motown And The Beatles For Inspiring Lots Of Bad Stuff In The '60s. Credit For The Album's Success Has To Go To Main Songwriter Vince Clarke, Who Would Extend And Arguably Perfect The Synth Pop Formula With Yazoo And Erasure; The Classic Early Singles "New Life," "Dreaming Of Me," And "Just Can't Get Enough," Along With Numbers Ranging From The Slyly Homoerotic "Pretty Boy" To The Moody Thumper "Photographic," Keep Everything Moving Throughout. David Gahan Undersings About Half The Album, And Martin Gore's Two Numbers Lack The Distinctiveness Of His Later Work, But Speak & Spell Remains An Undiluted Joy.” Ned Raggett, AMG. more

Violator
New - LP - WBAI-233980
Sealed Latest 180gm Gatefold Repress. "In A Word, Stunning. Perhaps An Odd Word To Use Given That Violator Continued In The General Vein Of The Previous Two Studio Efforts By Depeche Mode: Martin Gore's Upfront Lyrical Emotional Extremism And Knack For A Catchy Hook Filtered Through Alan Wilder's Ear For Perfect Arrangements, Ably Assisted By Top English Producer Flood. Yet The Idea That This Record Would Both Dominate Worldwide Charts, While Song For Song Being Simply The Best, Most Consistent Effort Yet From The Band Could Only Have Been The Wildest Fantasy Before Its Release. The Opening Two Singles From The Album, However, Signaled Something Was Up. First Was "Personal Jesus," At Once Perversely Simplistic, With A Stiff, Arcane Funk/hip-hop Beat And Basic Blues Guitar Chords, And Tremendous, Thanks To Sharp Production Touches And David Gahan's Echoed, Snaky Vocals. Then "Enjoy The Silence," A Nothing-else-remains-but-us Ballad Pumped Up Into A Huge, Dramatic Romance/dance Number, Commanding In Its Mock Orchestral/choir Scope. Follow-up Single "Policy Of Truth" Did Just Fine As Well, A Low-key Motown Funk Number For The Modern Day With A Sharp Love/hate Lyric To Boot. To Top It All Off, The Album Itself Scored On Song After Song, From The Shuffling Beat Of "Sweetest Perfection" (Well Sung By Gore) And The Ethereal "Waiting For The Night" To The Guilt-ridden-and-loving-it "Halo" Building Into A String-swept Pounder. "Clean" Wraps Up Violator On An Eerie Note, All Ominous Bass Notes And Odd Atmospherics Carrying The Song. Goth Without Ever Being Stupidly Hammy, Synth Without Sounding Like The Clinical Stereotype Of Synth Music, Rock Without Ever Sounding Like A "Rock" Band, Depeche Here Reach Astounding Heights Indeed."
