"1982. Vince left to form Erasure, leaving Martin Gore to take over songwriting. A darker sound that paved the way for good things to come. Not their best, but the band was in transition. UK hits Meaning of Love, See You, & Leave In Silence."
"1990. The band hit their peak here with this masterpiece. Personal Jesus, Enjoy The Silence, Policy Of Truth, and World In My Eyes continued their string of hit songs & solidified their international superstardom."
"1993. Captures a tumultuous time for the band due to personal problems. Alan Wilder left after this album. Dave Gahan had severe drug problems and was pushing for a more "rock" sound. The result was a heavier, guitar-oriented Depeche and managed to produce the excellent first single, the bluesy "I Feel You"."
"1997. After a slow recovery and a near fatal drug bout, a clean and sober Dave Gahan rejoins Martin and Fletch for a solid effort. Soft and smooth Depeche here, with the exception of the jarring first single, Barrel Of A Gun. A welcome return! It's No Good is classic Depeche."
"2009. And they just keep going and going...a slight return-to-roots kind of sound here. Martin dusts off vintage keyboards and recreates a bit of their early 80's style- but still basically a typical Depeche album. Highlights are Wrong, Peace, and Fragile Tension."
