By Jason Parkes #1 HALL OF FAME
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The title of Depeche Mode's album of Autumn 1987 was meant to be ironic with their appeal to the masses apparently on the wane/in stasis. That this was the LP that broke them in the US (see the film '101')was bizarre - perhaps the title was self-fullfilling prophecy? Recorded in Denmark, this advanced a little on the approach of 'Black Celebration'- the sampling approach from 'Construction Time Again' had fulfilled itself on 'B.C.' and pretty much concluded that approach. It's still here to a degree - the intro to 'Behind the Wheel' or the groans on 'I Want You Now' - but the LP is more base-electronic music with emphasis on the guitar Martin Gore had been openly playing since the single release of 'Strangelove' earlier in 87.
'Music for the Masses' is part of the trio of Mode reissues/remasters - like 'Speak & Spell' and 'Violator' it comes in this two disc edition with a wealth of related bonus tracks, an audio sequence, audio DVD and related embelishments. Both this and 'Violator' involve Flood and former Mode-member Alan Wilder in the reissue - which is about right, Wilder was a key part of the Mode so the project clearly warrants his input. The bonus tracks include the excellent instrumentals 'Stjarna' and 'Agent Orange' - plus Alan Wilder playing 'Moonlight Sonata' for the import only single of 'Little 15'! The album proper is all that's required truthfully - many Mode fans will have the b-sides and remixes on the remix-compilations of a year or so ago and the three box-sets put out in the 90s.

5.0 out of 5 stars Doom & Gloom. The Greatest DM Album. 5 May 2010
Format:Audio CD
This is the greatest DM album. It's difficult to choose the greatest DM album. They all have their perfections and they all have their flaws. I agree with most people who express an opinion that 'Violator', 'Black Celebration' and 'Songs OFAD' are contenders. However 'Ultra' really grows on you over the years and 'Playing The Angel' is just superb.
But for me 'MFTM' is their best album and my favourite DM record. I loved 'Black Celebration' especially the singles 'A Question Of Time' and 'Stripped.' How could DM ever top such songs? Answer: with this.
Be warned, the doom and gloom on this recording is almightily pervasive. There are a few lighter moments but as an exercise in beautiful, bleak melancholy 'MFTM' is hard to surpass. Incidentally, 'MFTM' is a wonderful title for a record of popular music and arguably the best DM album cover too; minimalist, reminiscent of some forgotten official document, most likely from some forgotten, brutally oppressive regime.
The Songs:

'Never Let Me Down Again' is quite a monster. It just comes booming straight at you, slavering with musical ideas (which is ironic since the lyrics seem so bland and innocuous): the opening guitar(?) riff, the piano melody, the big synth theme, the big pounding drums, the massive climax (choir and all) and then how it all dies down into a kind of post-apocalyptic breeze and the icy aftermath of 'The Things You Said' just sails in, takes over and chills your soul.

Back into slightly warmer territory for 'Strangelove.' DM's catchiest tune anyone?

'Sacred' is an odd song sounding by turns portentous and cheerful. I really enjoy the hopeful-sounding lyrics on this one however.

'Little 15.

5.0 out of 5 stars Minimalist Music Standing the Test of Time 8 Jun 2007
Format:Audio CD
When initially released a couple of decades ago, I found MFTM being a rather bleak album. Even the singles were somewhat low-key arrangements of what I still thought were great tunes. The reason I bought this re-mastered version is that I have been enjoying other re-mastered DM releases and thought that maybe it was worth giving MFTM another try.

Hearing this album again proves that giving it a second chance was well worth my time. The sound of many bands from the 80s has aged poorly; one can often almost pin point which year such and such album was released given the production sound that was currently in vogue. MFTM has, however, a timeless production. This could actually be released today and by tagging another artist name to the music this could most certainly appeal to today's masses. The songs are built upon minimalist sound bites and layered with various sound effects. This may have sounded bleak in the mid 80s but today this sounds remarkably fresh.

Listening to the album in 5.1 surround sound gives even more value to the production. The low-key beats driving the songs flow in a perfect tandem with the instruments flowing all around the listener. Actually, I hardly bother listening to this any other way.

Also included is a very interesting documentary about the making of the album, the making of its cover and the subsequent promotional tour. A highlight is the final concert which certainly put them on the map in the US. One senses how much pride DM still feel of MFTM.

I have one final note. Having bought other DM re-releases from the US, I initially simply forgot that the CD version from the UK is a hybrid SACD. I thus listened first to the dts surround sound the first few times, and was impressed.
