4.0 out of 5 stars Great live document of a band breaking America 26 Nov 2001
Format:Audio CD
101 was released in 1989 and is an evocative reflection of band who had just traversed the music press image of being tinkly-bomp techno-popsters, and were now regarded as an important and influencial force in global pop/rock. This live outing documents the 101st concert of their 1988 Music For The Masses world tour.
Now you would think that a synth-heavy techno-pop band from deepest Essex would not really elicit much of an atmosphere in any given environment. However, with two recent critically-acclaimed albums behind them, the band riding on the crest of a creative wave and 70,000 screaming Californians inside the Rosebowl, the band were now true stadium-rock gods and the atmosphere generated was truly electric (and that's not just the synths and drum machines !). Wish I'd been there !
The concert starts with a brilliantly powerful rendition of Behind The Wheel which really gets the fans going, while the rest of the album is paced generously to allow for breakneck singles, ballads and a few album tracks, all of which blend excellently into a fuller picture. The overall image is that of a band making a significant breakthrough on the world stage and this success would later be eclipsed by incredible success of their classic Violator album (1990) and the gothic rock/pop of Songs of Faith & Devotion (1993), by which time they were briefly the biggest band on the planet after U2. The classic Everything Counts, a famous Mode concert closer, rounds off the album perfectly and sums up the powerful emotions of this vast concert, also thankfully documented on video.
101 really does evoke a true live experience for the listener, as the truly massive crowd are clearly going totally ape for David Gahan and Co., whose stage presence was gradually becoming God-like.

5.0 out of 5 stars Depeche Mode become rock stars! 9 Jun 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This album dates from the time when Depeche Mode first decided they could be rock stars, and marks a definite turning point in their music. Playing at the Pasadena Rose Bowl to 70000 people, this album manages to catch the energy of that performance and 12 years later, it's hardly dated. How many other bands from the same era could pull this off ? And they're still going strong to this day !

5.0 out of 5 stars Depeche Mode 101 album 19 Feb 2004
Format:Audio CD
Excellent live album. Having also purchased and watched the DVD of this concert, it becomes apparent just how nervous the boys were as they began the concert, and as they progress through the numbers the atmosphere they generate becomes 'electric' - this instills the guys with real confidence, at which point Gahan drags the film crew camera man onto stage, the lights come on, and the full stadium erupts with feverpitch fans waving. . . .truly awe-inspiring. . .
Gahan at one point squats down on stage, seemingly overwhelemd by the love and adoration from the audience, captured by the Pennebakker film crew for us all to see - brilliant !! Get the DVD - turn your surround sound way up - and relive the moment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Re-release of a classic - a must-buy! 26 May 2001
If you're fairly new to DM, perhaps you've just bought Exciter, after the Greatest Hits packages - this is where to go next. Recorded at the last night of a mega world tour - this was the 101st gig, hence the title - 101 catches Depeche Mode at their mind-boggling best. All the 80s classics are here along with a couple of gems only available on the old albums. Side 4 in particular will just blow you away. The album opens with Pimpf which is basically just there to make sure you're listening, then the big stuff comes in with all guns blazing. Behind The Wheel gets the crowd, and you, just in the right frame of mind for Strangelove and by the time the last chords of Something To Do fade away you, and the audience, are putty in Dave Gahan's hands. Blasphemous Rumours kicks off Side 2 with all it's truisms about life and religion making it THE song for angst-ridden studenty types. Stripped follows hot on it's heels mocking the culturally inept for wallowing in their materialism and then there's Somebody. If anyone knows of a love song ever written, or sang, more from the heart, give me a bell and I'll put you straight. The side closes with Black Celebration which is about as dark and deep as you could want to get. Sides 3 and 4 just don't stop coming at you. From Pleasure Little Treasure through to Everything Counts just turn up the bass and the volume and immerse yourself in the wall of sound, except for Question of Lust which is a great song (number 2 to Somebody in the love stakes) but is strangely out of place where it stands in the track listing. It's like an island of tranquility and melody amidst the harder and harder hitting beats that surround it. Imagine one episode of Countdown in the middle of a couple of hours of The Weakest Link.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is my desert Island disc 21 Oct 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Depeche mode may be classified as 'pop' but this album is a world away from the quirky synthesiser bop which Depeche plucked from the 80s
These live tunes are powerfully strong and emotional. You get swept up with the vibe of the live concert and yet it's easy to lose yourself in the depths of the dark lyrics.
This album has just grown and grown on me beyond any Depeche Mode album i ever purchased.
I wore the first album out and im about to purchase a second.
