- Songs Of Faith & Devotion by Depeche Mode
8/10 Jack 18th May 2015
This album may not have been a huge success to many but it worked for me. Given that Violator was such a huge success both commercially and critically, Songs of Faith and Devotion had a lot to live up to. Although released three years later and in an entirely different manner, the album allowed the group to follow a direction that had previously been lacking. This was certainly a great follow up to Violator. Songs of Faith and Devotion takes you by the short and curlies and gives a full fledged tug saying, "LISTEN TO ME!"
