5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Amazing!, 24 May 2010
This review is from: Tribute to Depeche Mode (Audio CD)
I love Depeche Mode. I have been a fan of theirs for over twenty years now. I am especially fond of their very early material (the Vince Clarke era). I think "Speak and Spell" is easily the best synthpop album ever (well, "Dare" by the Human League is a close second). :) I first heard about this tribute CD back around 2000/2001. A friend of mine had sent me tracks on a mix tape, and I immediately loved it. The quality of the mix tape was bad, so for years now I have been trying to get it on CD. And now I finally have it! These guys did such an amazing job emulating the early DM sound. I swear they must have used the same drum machine and the same synths that were used on "Speak and Spell". They got the sound dead right. This tribute consists of early songs the band wrote that were never officially released, as well as covers of covers that the band played live in their early days. The lead singer doesn't sound much like Dave Gahan, but he still sounds good. Seriously, if you love early Depeche Mode, do yourself a favor and get this. I normally do not like tribute CDs but this one is EXCELLENT!
