Editorial Reviews

2014 Vinyl re-release of Depeche Mode's 1982 album. The album comes in gatefold sleeves with thick slabs of 180 gram black audiophile vinyl, all containing inserts and liner notes.

Customer Reviews

Satellite is a very depressed sounding song, which makes it great to listen to.
Martin Davis
The bonus material, three B-sides and a half-dozen live selections from a 1982 concert, is a generous offering, but to regulate it to the DVD side only is frustrating.
Catfood03
Martin Gore's songwriting was still developing, but the results on this album were very experimental and sometimes very exciting.
Scott Davies

As most people know, A Broken Frame is Depeche Mode's second release, the first after the departure of original member Vince Clarke (who went on to form Yaz -- Yazoo in the U.K. -- with Alison Moyet). Being the songwriter for Speak and Spell left a massive void to fill. Martin Gore took over songwriting duties for this album, and would continue to write the vast majority of Depeche Mode tunes even up to this day.

A Broken Frame is obviously the result of a band trying to redefine itself. I don't think anybody would argue it's not their best work, but in light of the fact that Depeche Mode is still around and kicking today, it's clear that DM were here to stay even in 1982.

Martin was apparently not to eager to completely shed the image that Vince Clarke had helped them to forge on Speak and Spell. This album is a bit schizophrenic. For example, songs like The Meaning of Love and See You obviously attempt to continue in the vein of their first release while tunes like Leave In Silence and Shouldn't Have Done That foreshadow the Depeche Mode we'd come to know much better on future releases like Construction Time Again and Some Great Reward.

If you're not familiar with much of Depeche Mode's music and are looking for some exposure, this probably isn't the record for you. Given how much they've changed over the past 25 years or so, it'd be hard to recommend one or two albums alone. If you're interested in their more pop-oriented releases from the '80s, you can't go wrong with Some Great Reward. For the later, darker version of the band, check out Black Celebration or Violator. For the latest generation of DM's sound, check out Ultra or Playing The Angel for a good representation of what they're all about today.

The range of reactions to "A Broken Frame" is both interesting and enlightening. Those who sniff at its "primitive technology" are failing to see the album in the context of its time. It's hardly surprising that the folks who love "Violator" and "Songs of Faith and Devotion" don't particularly care for "A Broken Frame"; Depeche Mode was a different (and, IMHO, a better) band at the time. It could certainly be said that the album is uneven, but the inventiveness of the stuff and the superior emotional content are undeniable. Gore's themes, lyrics, and melodies are brilliant, and Gahan's voice is just finding itself, becoming that uniquely dark and effective instrument of goth-industrial sound.I love the stark alienation of "Leave in Silence," "Satellite," and "Shouldn't Have Done That." The sense of longing and loss in "See You" makes the heart ache. The peppy pop of "The Meaning of Love" and "A Photograph of You" are simply fun. And "The Sun and the Rainfall" is DM at its best: simple, brooding, heartfelt, and beautiful. I always think of it as a pre-cursor to "Shake the Disease".The DM of the 80's was a different beast altogether from what it eventually became. Back then the boys weren't afraid to dig into painful emotions, however awkwardly. "A Broken Frame" was a strong building block on the way to their peak with "Some Great Reward" and "Black Celebration." From there, it's really been mostly downhill. If you love "Enjoy the Silence" but were disappointed with the rest of "Violator", check out "A Broken Frame"; you won't be disappointed.

Yeah this is probably not one of Depeche Mode's greatest albums. Some of the songs are a bit patchy and the lyrics are definitely ropey but it has something that some people tend to forget in albums - charm! It's thoroughly modest and they're not trying to be anything other than themselves. True, the cover of this album does gives a mysterious edge to it - and certainly for a pop band it does seem markedly different from anything else. But Monument, My Secret Garden, Leave In Silence and even Sattelite have something about them that seem oddly addictive.

It may never reach the greats but sometimes the greats are a little too pretentious and we need something that's real - that has flaws - that's human! It's those sort of things that make this album have a rare charm despite some of it's failings

This is Depeche Mode's second album but their first without Vince Clarke. He left shortly after the release of their first album and formed Yaz with Alison Moyet. Now the songwriting was left to Martin Gore and this album would mark "the beginning of their so-called dark phase".The three singles off the album were "See You","The Meaning Of Love" and the haunting "Leave In Silence". Other noteworthy tracks include "My Secret Garden", "Satellite" and "The Sun and The Rainfall".

Because the reissues are faithful to the original UK releases, there are a few noticeable differences between this album and the original 1990 release. First of all, "Leave In Silence" runs a little shorter(In fact the version on the 1990 CD was actually the 12-inch version). The one here is identical to the one on "The Singles 81>85". Also, "Further Excerpts From:My Secret Garden" has been omitted but a shorter version of it appears on the DVD. And for the astute listener, a small part of the intro on "Satellite" was trimmed.

The DVD features three additional tracks that were B-sides or part of 12-inch singles. The 27 minute documentary talks about the band continuing without Vince Clarke, the recruiting of Alan Wilder though he didn't participate in the recordings and the story behind the famous album cover.

Martin Gore was quoted as saying that this was probably their worst album but this is a very enjoyable album after a few listens.

Here's what's on the DVD:

-A Short Film-Depeche Mode: 1982 (The beginning of their so-called dark phase)

-The entire album in DTS 5.1 and stereo.

-Live in Hammersmith October 1982 in 5.1 and stereo:
My Secret Garden/See You/Satellite/Nothing To Fear/The Meaning Of Love/A Photograph Of You.

-Additional tracks:
Now, This Is Fun (B-side of "See You")
Oberkorn(It's A Small Town)
Excerpt from: My Secret Garden (B-side of "Leave In Silence-UK only)
