I have had this album at my elbo since about '90 to help focus summertime drunken emotional misgivings. If you are prone to forgetting the order in which they dissolve from one year to the next, then this is the Martin Gore Marshalling Masterpiece you need. A soundtrack to accompany the the slow decline of X generation into the false prophets of the Y. A metaphor for DM? I dunno, but the breadth of musical taste and the influence of Martin through this album upon the masters of UK rave, that was yet to dawn surely pays testament to his prematurity.
Get drunk on a summers eve in the garden and relax alone with this... Then wake up and pull yourself back together for Monday doth come....
Brilliant. Now where did I leave my youth....?

Some of the versions are better than the original ones, and some of them are interpreted in such a beautiful, new way. Although there are less songs than an average album, it just seems that listening on and on is possible. Makes you wonder how an original by Martin Gore would sound.

Counterfeit was released in 1989 in the hiatus between Mode's Music For The Masses and the triumphant Violator and sounds a little like both. This, of course, was not Martin Gore's first foray into solo artisty: previous Mode albums are peppered with songs that are to all intents and purposes solo Gore efforts (Somebody, The Things You Said, A Question of Lust etc.) but this was the first outing for Martin under his own name.
The songs are all covers (hence the title) and were obviously carefully chosen to show off Martin's expressive voice to its best. The highlights for me are the first three tracks. Compulsion skips along merrily with a sound a little reminiscent of the melodica used in Everything Counts. In A Manner of Speaking is a beautiful song about struggling to find the right thing to say. Smile In The Crowd is a terrific slice of Mode-like misery, but utterly compelling.
Anyone who enjoys Violator era Mode will enjoy this EP.

This is proof that Martin Gore must be the depressing influence on much of Depeche Mode's music. This is not to say it is bad (I gave it 4 stars), it is just depressingly sombre. In the right mood, it's perfect listening. Mr Gore has a great voice which fits well with the style of the compilations. "In a Manner of Speaking" and "Never Turn Your Back on Mother Earth" are great tunes, but I think "Motherless Child" wins out as the star of this album. If you like the Mode, you will definitely go for this album.
