5.0 out of 5 stars Never Bettered - Overlooked Classic #3, 12 Oct 2009
This review is from: Black Celebration (Audio CD)
I was once asked what my favourite album was, and what was the most depressing album I owned? I (perversely?) answered this to both, and it would probably still be included in my top 5 of lists for both headings.

Dark and brooding, filled with Death (Fly on the Windscreen), Sex (A Question of Lust, A Question of Time), Questions (see previous), Love (World Full of Nothing) and manipulation of the masses by the press through how stories are written ("You cant change the world, but you can change the facts....." - New Dress). It's one of those albums where the meaning behind each song appears apparent, but then you talk to someone else, and they have interpreted it a different way.

If you want to own one DM album - buy this one (then go and get Violator [CD + DVD]). If you want to own one "bleak" album in your chest of "cheery pop" - buy this one.

Many of the reviews here concentrate on whether the re-release of the album and the mixing has improved it...taking all of the comments on board, whatever mix you listen to it in, it is still without doubt DMs best, and an essential purchase for anyone with any interest whatsoever in this criminally under rated band or late 80s synth pop.
