Gahan & Gore's Growing Pains

"Considering this was 1982 and the band was left high & dry following Vince Clark's departure, I think A Broken Frame takes a lot of undue flack. Sure, Gore's lyrics leave something to be desired at times, but Depeche Mode showed they were capable of moving-on musically without missing a beat. "Leave In Silence", "See You", and "The Sun & The Rainfall" are highlights, and "Shouldn't Have Done That" is completely different from anything else the band had recorded to date. I think too often people forget that Speak & Spell wasn't without its faults (Anybody remember "Boys Say Go!"?), and while A Broken Frame wasn't Dark Side of the Moon, it did show musical progression and was evidence that the band was gonna be just fine."
Amazing, visionary, daring, laugh-out-loud funny

"A Broken Frame is easily my favorite Depeche Mode album of them all (next to Black Celebration). It's brooding yet it's full of dark humor that cracks me up every time. Depeche Mode clung to their dark image as their career progressed but their sense of humor seemed to fade away fast. Never was it so abundant as on A Broken Frame. For instance on "See You", my favorite track, Gore entreats an old ex of his to see him again (that's all he wants!) but it's obvious there's more on his agenda: "I'll try not to kiss you and I'll try not to hold you, though I think I still love you! All I want to do is see you, Don't you know that it's true?!". You can guess why the relationship ended in the first place. So clever and endearing. Other standout tracks include "The Meaning of Love" "Leave in Silence" and "My Secret Garden" although every track on the album stands out in its own way. Compared to Speak and Spell I find A Broken frame much more inviting with lusher intrumentation, less monotony and an over all better production quality. A Broken Frame is full of innocence and light-heartedness that Depeche Mode would never see the likes of again."
