One of the most truly noteworthy albums by Depeche Mode, this one was recorded after the departure of founding member Vince Clarke, and it demonstrated what could have been Depeche Mode's true calling had they not ventured into heavier, more industrial territory - they could have explored some really different ground with light romantic ballads. The album pens with "Leave in Silence", with the now common extended intro. Track two, "My Secret Garden", returns for a pointless instrumental reprise later in the album, this is a song packed with ideas, and charming lyrics. "Monument" is also an interesting song. It has a nice bouncy beat to it, with excellent backing vocals from Gore. "Satellite", is another interesting song in a similar vein to "Monument". A distinctly jaunty beat bobs this song along, but sadly, as on the rest of the album, Gahan is never allowed to use his voice to it's full potential. The album closes with two fine tracks. First, "Shouldn't have done that", which is just plain odd, odd lyrics, odd music; chants, Pippin Fort drums, marching feet - these all make up this hugely unusual but very enjoyable track, that leads nicely into album closer, "The Sun & The Rainfall". This features an excellent performance from Gahan on the chorus, finally allowed to let his throaty vocal rip. "A Broken Frame" makes you glad Depeche Mode were on an independent record label who had faith in their talent. Without this, it is not certain Depeche Mode would have got to a third album. This album definitely shows there is promise here of a greater band struggling to get out.
