Depeche Mode – Violator (1990)

One of those records that you should have no excuse to ever pass by. I got my copy secondhand for 50 cents, so what’s your excuse? 

This bridged the gap between the downfall of synth pop with the rise of infectious alternative rock like none other back then, but even in this day and age, it’s held up the best amongst their works. I can’t even count on my hands how many bands have covered tracks like “Personal Jesus” and “Enjoy the Silence” alone anymore; it has and always will be a synthpop classic.
