All Music wrote: “Initially the title must have sounded like an incredibly pretentious boast, except that Depeche Mode then went on to do a monstrous world tour, score even more hits in America and elsewhere than ever before, and pick up a large number of name checks from emerging house and techno artists on top of all that. This album makes Depeche Mode’s massive success perfectly clear…”

Turn Up The Volume!: syas: This record clarifies what they meant with pop
earworm ‘I Just Can’t Get Enough’ – indeed, they wanted the world and they got it.

Three Top tracks: Never Let Me Down Again / Strangelove / Behind The Wheel…

* NEVER LET ME DOWN AGAIN made them stars in America

* STRANGELOVE“I give in to sin because you have to make this life liveable”

* BEHIND THE WHEELdance floor filler


Still massive today…
