Depeche Mode Speak & Spell 180g LP
180g Vinyl Reissue!
With Vincent Clarke at the helm, Speak & Spell represents the band's debut sound
of synth music and catchy tunes from the early 1980s. Martin Gore later took
over to create a more goth-pop sound, which may be more familiar to Depeche Mode
Rooted in the UK's late 70's New Romantic movement, Depeche Mode formed in 1980,
and their pioneering, synthesizer-based sound went on to establish them as one
of the most successful alt-rock groups ever. These electro-pop superstars loomed
as large as cult heroes as they did as commercial heavies, and their wealth of
singles and signature tracks ranged from energetic dance grooves to dramatic,
moody, and industrial-tinged masterpieces. Depeche's originality of vision
weathered personnel shifts and personal turmoil, influencing modern rock and
synth-pop on a global level.
The vinyl LP comes in a gatefold sleeve with thick slab of 180 gram black
audiophile vinyl and contains insert and liner notes.
"Speak & Spell remains an undiluted joy." -Ned Raggett, allmusic.com
