商品説明

In a word, stunning. Perhaps an odd word to use given that Violator continued in the general vein of the previous two studio efforts by Depeche Mode: Martin Gore's upfront lyrical emotional extremism and knack for a catchy hook filtered through Alan Wilder's ear for perfect arrangements, ably assisted by top English producer Flood. Yet the idea that this record would both dominate worldwide charts, while song for song being simply the best, most consistent effort yet from the band could only have been the wildest fantasy before its release. The opening two singles from the album, however, signaled something was up. First was Personal Jesus, at once perversely simplistic, with a stiff, arcane funk/hip-hop beat and basic blues guitar chords, and tremendous, thanks to sharp production touches and David Gahan's echoed, snaky vocals. Then Enjoy the Silence, a nothing-else-remains-but-us ballad pumped up into a huge, dramatic romance/dance number, commanding in its mock orchestral/choir scope. Follow-up single Policy of Truth did just fine as well, a low-key Motown funk number for the modern day with a sharp love/hate lyric to boot. To top it all off, the album itself scored on song after song, from the shuffling beat of Sweetest Perfection (well sung by Gore) and the ethereal Waiting for the Night to the guilt-ridden-and-loving-it Halo building into a string-swept pounder. Clean wraps up Violator on an eerie note, all ominous bass notes and odd atmospherics carrying the song. Goth without ever being stupidly hammy, synth without sounding like the clinical stereotype of synth music, rock without ever sounding like a rock band, Depeche here reach astounding heights indeed. ~ Ned Raggett, Rovi

例えるなら、漆黒の闇の中に咲いた一輪のネオンフラワー。恐ろしいほどのロマネスクと美しさを感じる。あぁ素敵すぎる。

This is their most popular album. Melody and sounds are dark but you can feel warmth and safety. I loved them at this period. I’d love to see Alan back and want them work together...

ビルボード全米アルバム最高7位。実は彼らのアルバムで最も売れたアルバム。このアルバムの好評価が次作の初のアルバムチャート全米ナンバー1に繋がる事に。曲も含めて完成度が最も高く、シングルヒットも連発。更にアルバムに統一感もある。音質もサイコー。世界的な人気もこのアルバムで最高潮に達した。シングルは3(全米28位),6(全米8位),7(全米15位),1(全米52位)の順でカット。個人的にPolicy Of〜が最もお気に入り。ポップスアルバムとしても抜きに出たクールな傑作だ!。

One of the first acts to establish a musical identity based completely around the use of synthesizers, they began their existence as a bouncy dance-pop outfit but gradually developed a darker, more dramatic sound that ultimately positioned them as one of the mos
