Review/Comments/Thoughts:
Its not that I think lowly of this collection, its that I have not heard it enough to form a real opinion of it, but I do like the single Just Can't Get Enough One day I might change my thoughts on this CD but for now my rating of a 4/10 will stand.

Review/Comments/Thoughts:
A Classic album of the 90s, I remember as a teenager when I first heard Enjoy The Silence it instantly became a favorite song for me. Other favorites include Policy of Truth, Personal Jesus, Halo I admit I dont have much exposure to Depeche Mode but I think any further exposure Id probably use this album as a basis for the rest of their catalog
