4.0 out of 5 stars Nostalgic synth-pop that stands the test of time, 5 Sep 2004
This review is from: A Broken Frame (Audio CD)
Now, I must admit to being a fairly big Depeche Mode fan - but I am really into their later stuff as they became more synth-rock than synth-pop. I have only just gotten around to buying "A Broken Frame" (it's been out for years), and until now I hadn't heard it for a long while.
This is one of the first albums (maybe the first - can't recall!), written by Martin Gore - Erasure's Vince Clarke wrote their even-earlier stuff before he left the group. I have to say it isn't half bad, and some of the tracks would stand up now in the pop charts; Leave In Silence, Shouldn't Have Done that and My Secret Garden being my three particular faves.
Most of the album is quite easy-listenning synth-pop, and for a change with DM there's a fair bit of male-voice-harmony. You'll have to forgive them for "A Photograph of You" - after all every album has at least one dud track - but the rest is well worth having in your CD collection...... Even if it is only to take you back to the Glorious Eighties.
