I grew up listening to some of DM classic albums ' Music For The Masses ' , 'Violator' , ' Song Of Faith and Devotion ' and 'Ultra' are my favourite !
The band have been highly influential in the electronic dance music scene, especially synthpop, techno and trance.

Depeche Mode wrote one, maybe two songs that are great, but overall they're other stuff ranges anywhere from boring to OK, it's listenable. Their other stuff just doesn't pique my curiosity. They don't impress me enough to want to sit through a whole album by them. I do listen to bands that remind me of DM, but still that's not enough for me to want to go back and listen to any DM. So in my book they are not great. They are just in the middle, there are other bands better than them, and other bands worse than them.

The 20 Best Depeche Mode Songs: Critic's Picks by billboard !
In Depeche Mode's 40-year history, the synth-rock group has tackled countless subjects across the ordinary and taboo, including suicide, politics, romance, greed, LGBT rights, xenophobia, personal insecurity, religious zealotry, sexual freedom, drug addiction, and more. Have you ever been frustrated and alive? Depeche Mode has a song for you.
Run the tally, and we might have to all agree Violator is the band's greatest release. “Enjoy The Silence” comes from that 1990 collection of genius, and it's truly the epitome of Depeche Mode's greatness. Gahan's performance is strong but tender, the melodies ache and sing with joy. The beat is hard, relentless, and perfect for dancing. Its message is ironic, in that words could so well describe the magic of silence. When love is real, you don't need words. It's something you feel. A rose by any other name would smell just as sweet, and so on, and so forth.
