Format: Audio CD
The title says it all "Music for the Masses" , named after an album Martin Gore picked up in a record store called "Music for the Millions" it was meant as a tongue in cheek, ironic statement but turned out instead to be more prollific than was intended. This was Depeche Modes breakthrough album in the United States, despite success earlier with "People are People", and culminated with the end of the subsequent tour at the Rosebowl stadium in front of some 70 000 fans (see DVD 101). The boys had certainly hit the big time!

A great album by any standards, MFTM is the pre-cursor to the more popular and slick "Violator", it is in my opinion Martins magnum opus with epic classics such as "Never let me Down" still played live today to much fanfare. Other standout single tracks including "Strange Love",(the album version is different to the single release)and "Behind the Wheel" being masterfully interwoven with a unique, textured backdrop of combined atmospheric sound and emotion thanks not only to Martins outstanding song writing and Dave's superb vocal strength but also to the inspired programming and production of Alan Wilder and Dave Bascombe, who had worked on the Tears for Fears album - Songs From The Big Chair and went on to work with Suede and Goldfrapp.

This is the first Mode Album to introduce guitar in a major way. This is not used in a conventional fashion but sampled in order to give the songs an edgier texture. Developing and growing new sounds has always been a DM staple and is used to great effect on this album. Never to outdo the song but rather to enhance it as illustrated brilliantly on "I want you now" yes yes yes!!!

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.

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.
