It were your second DM record, you would treasure it

"Well, I've gotta give this one love too. Remember, when it came out, all that preceded it was the pop perfection of Speak and Spell. So this was all arty and moody. Swinging wildly from end of the spectrum to the other, hitting some real gems along the way. See You - Brilliant. Meaning of Love - Brilliant too. All the moody synth-driven songs were just lush for the time, and I think I wore out the tape I made of it, playing endless round and round loops on my AIWA walkman. Oh god how I got into all the sad songs walking and pouting in snowstorms on the way here or there with this playing in my ears. I doubt you'd love this if it were your 6th or 7th DM CD, but if it were your second, you would treasure it as I do."
A Boring CD

"I must admit I didn't "grew up" listening Depeche, instead, was indoctrinated starting when I was around 17 by a good friend, and later by who became my wife. Nevertheless, I do like their music, and have enjoyed every single CD from them I had bought... until now. I didn't think I was ever going to say this, but: This disc by Depeche Mode is a terrible disc. Tremendously monotonous, boring... ugh! I don't hate it, but I don't think I will be playing it often!"
