Depeche Mode: Wembley Arena, London
Carl Loben, Melody Maker, October 1998
CITED BY MANY electronica artists as an early influence, Depeche Mode began life as chirpy synth-poppers in the early '80s before moving into superb clangers of scrap metal for their third album. Then they went all industrial, got huuuuuge, and their singer got himself a heroin habit. It's a soddin' shame they're now such pants.
