    After listening to The Three EP's, I was like, "oh, now I get that High Fidelity joke."
    We're here to play some Mississippi Delta Blues. We're in a horrible depression, and I gotta admit - we're starting to like it.

    That's Grandma's sense of humor. It's a Neil Young album. That maybe those bands took some influence from.

    I started with their self-titled but I don't know if that's really their best entry.

    Octopus is great too.

    What Tom said, and then to Flip Your Wig, then Zen Arcade. Then you'll likely be able to come back to Candy Apple Grey and appreciate it more. That album has some great songs, but is the weakest of their post-Metal Circus golden era.

    Depeche Mode. I've only ever listened to Violator. I'll take a few if you don't mind.

    The entire run of albums from Some Great Reward through Ultra fantastic. If Violator is really your thing though, Music For The Masses would be other record most like it stylistically.

    But if you want to dive into the band,

    Some Great Reward
    Black Celebration
    Music For The Masses
    Violator
    Songs Of Faith & Devotion
    Ultra

    All is chronological order will give you a very good 13 year tour of their career. Their first three albums have some great songs, but the whole records can be hard to get through. The last couple albums are not great either, but will be worth listening to if you find yourself a fan. But those 6 middle albums, including the one you have, those are fucking great.

    If you want an overview of the early stuff, get The Singles 81-85 or Catching Up With Depeche Mode. But I absolutely concur with Drinkey, those are the six best albums, and they show an astonishing degree of growth on the part of the band that people normally don't think to attribute to them.

    This is absolutely spot on. The first three albums are near impossible for me to get through, even though there are a couple of decent tracks smattered about. Music for the Masses is definitely where I would start. I love that album.

    I know it's a live album, but 101 deserves a mention if only as a reference point in terms of just how freaking popular they were.

    Heaven 17.

    Pop Will Eat Itself.

    (I searched for Heaven 17 but the search function will not accept the latter band)

    The first two Heaven 17 albums (Penthouse and Pavement and The Luxury Gap) are the best, though How Men Are is worth a listen. I'd start at the beginning; "(We Don't Need This) Fascist Groove Thang" is one of the great catchy Thatcher-bashing tunes of the era.

    This Is the Day...This Is the Hour...This Is This! is the album on which PWEI really hit their stride. The follow-up, Cure For Sanity, is okay, but The Looks or the Lifestyle? is pretty dire.

    Yes. Penthouse & Pavement is by far the most stomachable Heaven 17 album. And if you can excuse (or indulge) it's more dated and campy aspects, it's one of the funnest and most biting of the early synth pop albums.

    I listened to Penthouse & Pavement... and well, it is probably not for me, mostly.

    I listened to a bunch of This Is The Day... and am seeing the draw. This must have sounded crazy in 1989 and I bet I would have loved this had I heard it in the 90s. I will keep listening to see how it goes.

    Thanks for the recommendations!
