Depeche Mode - Violator
About this album
Import remastered pressing of Violator which is Depeche Mode's most mainstream, chart-climbing album. Although it contains only nine tracks, half of them are tailor-made for the dance floor. This album was conceived when dance-club DJs were gaining recognition alongside original composers. Heavily influenced by techno-pop, the singles 'Policy of Truth', 'Enjoy the Silence', and 'World in My Eyes' prove that DM did their homework. A particular highlight on this fantastic album is the bluesy guitar line Martin Gore lays down on top of the synth-dominated grooves on 'Personal Jesus'. Mute. 2006.
