Format: VHS Tape
This video is much better than it's predeccessor, all the clips are much more coherent and although they have nothing really to do with the songs (apart from World in your Eyes)they all work well, a major plus point is the inclusion of the fantastic "Halo" a song that should have been released as a single as it is easily one of the best songs they have ever done. All in all this is a great video showcasing the band but with the release of the Deluxe Videos 86-98 DVD is a bit non-essential except to hardcore band fans.

This film by Anton Corbijn nicely packages the videos from the Violator era into something greater than the sum of its parts. The concept for this film is weaker or perhaps more subtle than it's predecessor (Strange) and just lets the videos (rather than narrative) tell us stories which explore different aspects of Violator's love-apocalypse theme. Halo is a gem. A prized possession, just wish it was available on DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Corbijn Goes To Color; Release On DVD PLEASE?!!!!!!!! 22 July 2001
By Mr. - Published on Amazon.com
After working with Depeche Mode in Black & White ("Strange"), Dutch photographer Anton Corbijn turned to Color for the Mode's next set of music videos from their then newest album, Violator. The result is a wonderful collage of music and visuals that never let you down. Is it any wonder Violator is considered by many (including myself) to be DMs best album?
Personal Jesus-actually this is my least favorite music video out of the 6 presented here. I love this song to death, but the Brit humor really seems wrong to me. This song evokes such a powerful message, but instead of Dave singing to disenchanted youths on the telephone we get the whole band, dressed in cowboy attire, making their way over to a bordello for some fun and relaxation. I never truly question depeche mode, but I do feel that a great song such as Personal Jesus deserves a more serious toned music video.
Policy Of Truth-Beautifully done music video, with DM getting dumped by their girlfriends and learning to cope with it. This video really kept the essence of the song intact.
Enjoy The Silence-My favorite song and my favorite DM music video. It doesn't get much better than this. Anton hit the nail right on the head with the idea of having Dave dress up as a king and walk all over the world to find a suitable spot to sit down on a cot and, simply put, enjoy the silence. Plus the other shots of the band wearing leather jackets is very nice. This video also gives us a rather unique musical intro that is not found on the normal version of Enjoy The Silence or any other remixed version.
Clean-A previous reviewer stated how much they disliked this video because of the lack of tone the video gives to such a serious and important song. This is the exact way I feel about the Personal Jesus video. But I have a soft spot for Clean. Watching Martin's girlfriend finishing her swim, then coming in to sit with him on the sofa for an evening of pleasure and romance can't be all that bad. Basically they're shot from behind the sofa, so the main focus is to view what is on the wall which is various things, such as pictures of the band and such. Perhaps not serious enough, but still better than the Personal Jesus video.
Halo-Great Video with a Great little Story too! I personally think that if you like Martin over Dave, then this video is for you. The story is this: a circus has come to town and Martin & his girlfriend play sort of miming clowns, while Dave plays the "Strongest Man In The Universe". But then Dave makes a play for Martin's girl and is turned down flat as she goes to sleep in Martin's arms, while Dave lies awake, brooding. A Special Note: Look for Jenna Elfman (TVs Dharma & Greg) as one of the dancers in this video(she's the tall one).
World In My Eyes-standard music video set to a live performance of the song. Everytime I see this video I think of how much I'd love to have a good quality copy of a World Violation Tour Concert on Compact Disc. Sadly, there are none available to the public. Even the bootlegs for that era are pretty crappy. I guess after giving us "101", DM didn't feel the need to release more complete concerts on CD. Maybe one day they will.
Please release this and all other depeche mode films on DVD. There are plenty of fans out here who would love to get their hands on them!
Stay Devoted and Enjoy The Silence!

4.0 out of 5 stars Video of classics, other rarities 19 Aug. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
This is a great collection of 4 classic Depeche Mode hits, 'Personal Jesus', 'Policy of Truth', 'Enjoy the Silence', and 'World in My Eyes.' Two other rarities only available on this tape are 'Clean' and 'Halo', both made in classic Anton Corbijn style! A must for any DM fan!

Anton Corbin at it again getting all artsy fartsy in B & W. VHS duo Strange and Strange Too will set you back 9 10 bucks plus S/H each only 30 min. to boot but hey love my guys any way I can get them. Who would of known back in 1980 those boy band cuties would mature into such scrumptious 50+ ageless hunks who's music only gets better with time? And NEW fantastic stuff not to mention the B sides NOT on albums. We just DEMAND Personal Jesus, Enjoy the Silence etc..Well here they are 1990 in B & W from Violator. Compare now 22 years later and personally the more they tinker the better they get. DO NOT leave well enough alone. This was just for posterity but Try getting CD/DVD sets, cheaper and some have 3 disks, all back catalog available off and on various sets or just the album/CD with 10 times the music. Live is incredible!!! For these prices you could get for example "Tour of the Universe-Live in Barcelona 2009 and 2010 concerts 2 CD's and 1 DVD plus bonus tracks for MUCH less-like $9.00 + S/H AND DVD/CD Violator set don't get turned off by prices gotta keep checking prices my Violator and Tour sets were less than Strange and Strange Too. HOURS of CD DVD's 32 years of exceptional music. Serious collectors still buy VHS. Mine were UVG but I say ULN slap on some shrinkwrap NEW!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Dutchman Anton Corbijn begins to revamp the Mode 23 May 2001
By Gina Marie Warswick - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Though director Anton Corbijn had already begun working with the boys of DM with the songs from their previous album, MUSIC FOR THE MASSES, it was with these songs from the VIOLATOR album which Corbijn's control started to shape the way we saw Depeche Mode become a more visual and theatrical band.
The videos are all linked by the idea of the bandmates sitting at a drive-in cinema to see the individual films.
The videos range from bizarrely original ("Halo" with its concept of caravan-circus performers), to minimalist ("Enjoy the Silence" could probably be talked about by film professors as a masterwork in the concept of 'scaling down'), to concert footage ("World in My Eyes"), to sneaky iconoclastic, tongue-in-cheek Brit humor ("Personal Jesus" with cowboys visiting four dark-haired ladies)...
The only letdown of the collection is "Clean." It simply involves songwriter Martin Gore on a couch with a young woman, having a rather heated makeout session. For such a lyrical stunner of a song, the video enormously lacks for content.
Other than that, however, you will be very pleased to see this collection from 1990--the year VIOLATOR exploded, and Anton Corbijn was part of the reason behind it. For those who saw Depeche Mode's earlier, poorly made videos, you will feel properly redeemed to see this collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars Strange Too 19 May 2000
By Eli Lechtman - Published on Amazon.com
A great video with some awsome Depeche Mode classics. A pitty though it was so short. Not truly value for money compared to the other Depeche Mode videos you can get, but nonetheless an awsome collectors item if you're a big fan of theirs.
