“Ultra” by Depeche Mode

Album Title: Ultra

Year of Release: 1997

Performed by: Depeche Mode

The Bent*Spud 2 Cents:

With Alan Wilder having departed and Dave Gahan a drug-addled mess, Depeche Mode were a band in turmoil toward the end of the 1990s. Ultra turned things right around and surprised everyone with the blistering beats of its stompers and the subtle elegance of its ballads, all thanks to trip-hop super-producer Tim Simenon, who took full and complete rein. This is the sound of a rejuvenated band that came back from the brink.

Best Tracks: “Home,” “It’s No Good,” “Barrel Of A Gun,” “The Love Thieves,” “Sister Of Night”
