a perfect peice of electronic 80s pop!,
This review is from: A Broken Frame (Audio CD)
i never bought the album when it came out..i bought the 3 singles and loved and adored them..still do!!!
how does it stand up as an album as on sacd!
before i start i prefer my depeche mode with a pop sound rather than the grunge/goth/rock of later albums...all respect to those fans!
the overall sound on sacd is brilliant..crisp, clear and with the odd bit of tinkle which you miss on the regular cds...
the standout tracks are the three singles "the meaning of love" and "see you" are perfect pop songs! "see you" especially is a pop masterpeice of its time! i loved it then and i love it now! "leave in silence" was a big change from the first two singles but its a brilliant track and deserved to do much better than it did in the charts!
as to the rest of the tracks..."the sun and the rainfall" and "my secret garden" stand out and "the sun" could have been a great single!
the rest of the tracks are ok but nothing special but still good!
if you love 80s electronic music this is a must!
i havent yet listened to it in 5.1 or watched the dvd but its great value when if they had wanted to cash in on their fans they could have released the two separately! a lovely package..a great cd!
