Welcome to the new BlahBlahCafe!

Currently, we are experiencing some DNS problems. We hope to fix this as soon as possible.

We have migrated to a new server. As with every migration, some things might have been lost in translation (at least, that's my experience in software development). The main problem is logging in into the boards. These could be caused by several reasons:

- Your browser cache & cookies need to be cleared because we moved to a new server. If you get the error message whilst logging: "The submitted form was invalid. Try submitting again.", you need to clear your cache & cookies. You can find a "Delete cookies" option at the bottom of this page.

- There is also a chance that your password is not correctly converted to the new system. This is a known bug with migrating the system. The only solution is to request a new password, there's a link on the form that will send an email to you to create a new password. If that fails, I can set a password for you, you can contact us at the "Contact us" link at the bottom of the page.

I'm becoming more and more interested in Depeche Mode... so far I 'only' have the Singles collection (both 81>85 and 86>98). Those SACD newly packaged re-issues were gazing very tempting at me at the stores... so my question is, which should I start with (I think I'm more fond of their later work... that early 80s stuff didn't really impress me) and which are already re-issued as SACD?

I'm waiting for my order with a 180 gram new vinyl of Black Celebration.
All I have is Ultra, Exciter, Remixes 81...04 and Playing The Angel.
Their discography is really quite impressive so instead of jumping randomly into this rather big ocean
I think I'll continue with Andro's advice. Thanx Andy! :fine:

You're welcome! :nod:

I jumped into it right from the start with Speak & Spell in 1981, and have been following them ever since. Got all their albums, and a shit-load of singles. :nod: Not been collecting that many singles in recent years, though. Same goes for all my favourite artists. :mrgreen:

Thanks :D

Violator seems to be the first to must-have... :nod:
Weird though, I really thought I saw the Ultra and Exciter remasters in the stores? Hmmh. :robertdugenou:

Ultra and Exiter are pretty good too, as is playing the angel. best works IMO are violator and "Songs of Faith and Devotion"

DM is however not a band I play a lot on my CD player, for me they're a "liveband". I've seen 4 of their concerts over the years and everytime they're F-ing brilliant, especialy when you watch them live in germany (they are BIG there)...

So if I have to sugest something I would sugest watching them on DVD, "One night in Paris" is a brilliant DVD to watch (both versions, the DM concert DVD AND the Paris Hilt... ehm, sorry...)

Seriously, those live versions R O C K, especialy "Enjoy the Silence" and "Never let me down" (wave hands everyone ;-)

Another good concert to watch is "rock am ring", only availlable as bootleg and the soundquality is "iffy" but brilliant registration of the concert and a nicer tracklisting...

"Ultra" and "Violator" are really superb! Real Masterpieces! :D Yes, and their live concerts are very dynamic and amazing! And I love the bootlegs where Martin Gore is playing piano and sings with a few fans in hotel lounges (tracks of Oasis, Sex Pistols, David Bowie, Beatles etc.) - very funny!!! :D

Also I'm a bit tempted to buy Some Great Reward...only because of the cover photo. I like that. :mrgreen:

GeeJee, welcome to DM fan group :-D

Yes, Violator, Songs of Faith and devotion and Music for the Masses are the cornerstones of their music.

Later you can try last album - Playing the Angel.

Some additional info about the official remaster DM site:

There isn´t mentioned all SA-CD DM discography. Separately was issued Playing the Angel as SA-CD + DVD release and appr. 3 years ago there was released "101" live 2-disc SA-CD album.

Be careful with buying of bazaar SA-CD 101 album. First release was produced with incorrect 5.1 tracks. More info please find at depmod.com

Ultra + Exciter SA-CD editions will be released in September (originally in May :-( )

if you want another SA-CD electronic albums (2.0 or 5.1) try Tangerine Dream, Kraftwerk or Kitaro - they released some albums at SA-CD format. For more albums you can visit www.sa-cd.net . It is the best site about SA-CD albums

I wasn't much much into them, but after having listened to Enjoy The Silence and Martyr (love that one !) on radio, I really like them, but I have never listened to other tracks, what would you advise me to listen to, regarding to what I like ?
