342 shhhh enjoy the silence

Violator has been violated. I don’t really like when the original album is no longer available, or at least doesn’t seem to be available. I don’t really mind remastered albums but leave the extra crap off. Yes, Violator has been remastered and 6 extra tracks have been added. At least the original track listing is there so I could just stop after the ninth song.

Violator was released in 1990 and is Depeche Mode’s seventh album. I’m sure you’ve heard songs from this album. Maybe not from Depeche Mode as songs like ‘Personal Jesus’ and ‘Enjoy the Silence’ have been covered by many a band (Lucuna Coil does a nice ‘Enjoy the Silence’ and I think Marilyn Mason covered ‘Personal Jesus’). It’s a great album. I hope it moves higher on the list in the future.

 Sire, 1990
