Depeche Mode is what I like to refer to as a stepping stone band. They take their rightful place on the list of influences of great musicians, yet their own greatness pales in comparison. Everyone has a Depeche Mode song that they love, yet I have met very few certifiable fans of this band. Perhaps it is that 80s box they so flawlessly fit into which is just a steel trap. For a band to be truly dynamic, timelessness is indeed a factor.
The former mentioned songs that everyone loves are on this collection of greatest hits so if you find yourself in the fan category, go grab it. For someone curious about Depeche Mode, this is a good album to check out as a fair introduction.
