The videos of Basildon synth-pop pioneers Depeche Mode are justly celebrated not only for charting the band's musical evolution but also their penchant for stylish visual imagery. This collection features all of the band's videos from 1986 to 1998. Of the 20 videos here, director Anton Corbijn was responsible for 18, including classics such as "Enjoy the Silence", "Strangelove" and "Personal Jesus", which means this is as much a profile of his work as Depeche Mode's. Much of Corbijn's material was shot in black and white, lending it an artful edge which captures some of the majesty of Mode's music. The non-Corbijn videos are Peter Care's for "Stripped", notable for its bleak imagery, and Clive Richardson's assured "A Question of Lust". The videos are presented chronologically and bookended by interviews with the band discussing the videos and the singles, making this a fantastic retrospective not only of Depeche Mode's visual side, but of their enduring musical legacy too.

On the DVD: Depeche Mode: The Videos has a bonus disc featuring an extra hour-and-a-half of rare and exclusive material, including three insightful documentaries that centre around the albums Violator, Songs of Faith and Devotion and Ultra, and the US videos for "One Caress", "Strangelove 88", "Condemnation" and "But Not Tonight". All of this is good stuff and a valuable addition to the package. Both discs are pleasantly presented in a sturdy fold-out cardboard case, and recorded in Dolby stereo with a screen ratio of 4:3. The menus and screens are slickly presented and easy to use. --Paul Sullivan

5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful collection........... 2 Mar 2002
Finally, the electro-soul wizards are presented in a digital audio and visual format. DM fans will view this as essential. Moreover, for any true music connoisseurs of the eighties and nineties, this must be one of the most complete collections depicting the innovations in electronically driven music during the last 15 years.
Sound and visuals are incredible: best enjoyed in widescreen and 5.1 (dts).

4.0 out of 5 stars Stunning 11 April 2006
By Coincidence Vs Fate TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Visually this is an amazing DVD set. All the classics from - what I believe - is DM's best period. Apart from the obvious monsters; Enjoy The Silence, Never Let Me Down Again, Policy Of Truth, etc you also get some nice obscure titles such as Little 15 and the fantabulous Only When I Lose Myself.
I know others have cited problems with the sound, but I only have human ears and it sounds great to me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Helping to complete the picture 2 Feb 2003
Although not definitive, and missing several videos, this is a very welcome release. The first disc is exactly as before - a video transfer without any remastering (but considering that most of the promos are filmed on Super 8 doesn't cause too many problems). The second disc contains the excellent, stylish EPKs from Violator, Songs and Ultra (all promotional only) as well as four US only videos, of which only One Caress was available commercially. These single videos, although not spectaclar (indeed, actually pretty poor) are an excellent addition as they are elsewhere unavailable.
It is a shame that there was no room to complete the set with the excellent films for Clean, Halo and those for Pimpf and the Split mix of NLMDA. Perhaps these will be released on DVD in the complete forms of the Strange and Strange Too films.
If you are a dedicated dM fan, you are likely to have the tracks on CD anyway, so the sound, which is little better than the video version will not be a deciding factor. For everyone else, this is a two disc set of some of the most essential British electronic music of the last 17 years, set to provocative visuals and completed with three half hour documentaries. And beautiful packaging. Pretty good!
It gets five stars as the music and visual content is superb. However although the set could have been better, it is highly recommended. The European version also contains a computer read only Easter Egg.

4.0 out of 5 stars Serious Enjoyment 31 May 2000
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
For a band that take themselves very seriously, this is serious entertainment and very good value. Twenty two tracks, 126 minutes and many black and white moodscapes, whether the track calls for them or not. It looks fantastic- it sounds better. Highlights for me are 'Enjoy the Silence' and the more recent 'Home', but there's many fine tracks , some of which are less familliar- perhaps a testimony of the band's falling out with teen-friendly radio, rather than any deterioration in the music.
One of the best music DVD's yet released and very nice after you've had a few glasses of wine, with the volume UP.
Neighbours? What neighbours!

4.0 out of 5 stars 101 - The magic number 4 Aug 2005
An intriguing insight into the golden age of the Basildon band who paved the way for electronic live shows. More videos than you could shake a stick at, and analysis, if a little brief, from all the major players. Haven't yet seen Disc 2, so maybe this will fill the gap.
If you're a DM fan, you'll want to see it regardless of any review. If you're not yet a fan, this might just make you one.

5.0 out of 5 stars The very best Of Depeche Mode 26 May 2000
This DVD just oozes quality.The sound is great and the pictures..Well they talk for themselves. who can forget "Enjoy the silence" and "Personal Jesus"? If you enjoy electronic music then I belive this is the DVD for you. Play it through a home cinema system; roll back the years and feel the hairs on the back of your neck quiver. Worth every penny.Pure enjoyment.

It doesnt have lots of extras, but hey, what extras would be on here, a couple of offbeat interviews with the band! What matters is quality music and video now being able to be viewed at its best, on DVD. For the money, it rocks. Depeche modes music and video deserves such a format, buy it if your a fan, dont buy it if you just want dvds becasue of extras!
