Amoeba Review

Brad 10/15/2012

Depeche Mode was one of the first bands that I really got into. I had all their albums I could get my hands on and had their posters on my wall. I had picked up Music For The Masses when it came out a couple of years before and had really worn it out by this point! I had to actually replace my cassette because it was so worn out. So I was anxiously waiting for this album. Violator was a bit of a change for them. It was dark but still had their signature synth sound. It was a masterpiece and became their biggest album and probably most Depeche Mode fan's favorite album. It included "World In My Eyes," "Enjoy The Silence," "Policy Of Truth," "Clean," & "Halo." And of course "Personal Jesus." Personal Jesus sort of became the Friday I'm In Love of the album. It was so overplayed that I never wanted to hear it again for a while. I was finally able to like that song again a couple of years ago. I can't imagine 1990 without this album. It became such a part of my life in the early '90s. It really was the bands gift to us. It was one of those albums that I grew up while listening to. The Cure had given us Disintegration the year before and now we had Violator in 1990. It was almost too much for one teenager to handle! The band embarked on another huge tour and overtook the world with this album. It brought them a whole new group of fans. But those of us that had loved them since Black Celebration or even Speak And Spell knew the greatness of this band years before.

 

This album featured in Brad’s Best Albums of 1990 blog.
