One of six new boxed sets housing six separate Depeche Mode singles and a 12-page booklet. Box 2 represents the Construction Time Again (1983)/Some Great Reward (1984) era with the hits "Master And Servant," "Blasphemous Rumours," "People Are People," and others. Also included are alternate mixes, live versions, and extras.
One of the most successful modern rock bands ever, Depeche Mode were at once cult heroes and commercial heavies. Originally rooted the U.K.'s late-'70s New Romantic movement, they went on to pioneer a signature style built on propulsive beats and massive synth lines. From mesmerizing dance raves to industrial dirges, their brilliant electro-pop is the sound of a global phenomenon.

""Singles Box 2" has a handful of Depeche Mode's most vital hits. Capturing the period 1983-1984, this box set has signature moments like "Everything Counts," "People Are People," and the s&m bite of "Master and Servant" (it also has the singles "Get the Balance Right," "Blasphemous Rumours," and "Love in Itself). All the singles come with b-sides and/or extended remixes, with other noteworthy tracks such as the excellent non-album cut "(Set Me Free) Remotivate Me," the "Silk Mix" of another b-side "In Your Memory," and the 12-inch version of "Get the Balance Right." Also, I've said it before, and I'll repeat it here: this box set has no "new" material, so everything you see has been previously released. The booklet has only the tracklisting of the entire box set, with no lyrics or photos. But who cares? Any Depeche Mode fan worth his/her salt will pick this winner up, and even though they may already have these singles, this box set presents them in superior sound on CD. A keeper."
Music is good, however

"If you like early Depeche Mode the music is great each single is pretty much a collection of the various single tracks released in the UK and US. I actually bought this after already having the 1991 release of the UK edition singles box. I'd thought this might have been a remastered release. It isn't, this is the 1991 release music reissued in 2004 there is no discernible difference in Audio quality to the 1991 release which is a shame as you can hear in the Box sets 4-6 that they did remaster those.
This US us release also when you compare it to the UK release has a much cheaper looking and feeling box, it is much more flimsy. So if you have the choice I'd pick the UK release but keep in mind you are not getting a remastered sound for your money."
