    NOTES:
    1. In 1999, Ned Raggett (US music journalist) ranked the album at number 50 on his list of "The Top 136
    Or So Albums Of The Nineties".
    2. This version is based on my experience of DM's 'dark' tunings and how Martin Gore matches them to suit
    David Gahan's voice.
    3. Despite, Gahan's prolonged absences from the studio we are all indebted that Gore persisted to make
    this milestone album.
    "…Despite Gahan's increasingly severe personal problems, Gore tried repeatedly during 1995 and 1996 to get
    the band recording again. However, Gahan would rarely turn up to scheduled sessions, and when he did,
    it would take weeks to get any vocals recorded. …"
