I would give their greatest hits, '85-'98, a try first. I think that's a great compilation of their best work.

i agree...
they are really good live...
dave gahan has huge charisma and presence on stage...

having said that...
i hgave been bored by them for years....
and i saw the latest video...
it was probably the most boring one yet...
...


i'll stick with the classic stuff...
early early depress mode...*ahem*...i mean depeche mode......
...
back when vince clarke was still in the band...
*vince clarke went on to do the assembly, yaz(oo) and erasure...
people are people...
master and servant...
everything counts...
get the balance right...
blasphemous rumours...
etc, etc...

pure genius...music with a social conscience...
great band!!!...
...

i recommend 'catching up with depeche mode'...
everything up until 1985...
it was all downhill after black celebration as far as i am concerned...
they just went completely commercial and mainstream...

I always loved the drama in their music in the 80's and early 90's....it's still one of the most distinct sounds...ever. And such a rare quality(only ones I can think of who carry that feeling are totally underrated compared with what they were doing back then-PJ Harvey,Nick Cave + Goldfrapp),even today, and they always did it without sounding pretentious and whiney like some of today's so-called artist's.

^ Well, then I'll post this, and then duck and run...

Most people who say they can't stand a band have not listened to all of their material. But, eh, everybody has their opinions.

Softgrey, I agree with you on how you said that their most recent material has been boring. But I'm sticking to my guns, and saying that their 90's work was their best... in my eyes...

Depeche Mode are variable. A lot of the songs on their albums are filler, which is why they work best on compilation discs that cut out the crap. They're a lesser favorite of mine and they definitely have a handful of really good songs (personal jesus, enjoy the silence, behind the wheel, never let me down again, stripped), but I generally see them as a more superficial, less talented version of Joy Division.

Fair enough. I don't think listening to any more of their material would change my opinion, but i definitely respect everyone's opinions. I just personally find them mopey.

But there are lots of cool artists out there whose appeal i don't get even though i know i should. For example, i've tried over & over to like The Replacements. I know i should like them because there are so many things i like that lead right to them. And i have to say, i've heard nearly their whole catalog. I even have 3 or 4 CDs, but when i put them on i scratch my head.

DM songs are fillers????? It's obvious that you haven't seen them palying live....

DM a version of Joy Division? I think they are one of the few who can have any claims on originality of sound and production....
