Depeche Mode, "Speak and Spell" / 1981 Review by: Curt
Speak & Spell was Depeche Mode's first album, and in my opinion was their most unique in sound and great funky beats and synths. This was when Vince Clarke of Yazoo and Erasure fame was with them, and the music had a neat futurist sound mingled with New Romantic/Disco styles. (New Life) is one of my favs off this cd and was a big club hit in England in 81, also (Photographic) and "Just Cant Get Enough" which I consider the 80s anthem, and also Dreaming of Me which is my other fav. But check it out, it is worth the find and is so different than all their later albums, and much less gloomy too.
