It's interesting that Depeche Mode and Erasure released their masterpieces Violator and Chorus (at least in my humble opinion) nearly at the same time. Ah, good times back then. Gee, I am getting old... lol

I often thought of the same thing. 1990-91 was a very interesting time for both Mute artist

I think the music industry has significantly changed since then and we shouldn't forget that Daniel Miller and the bands are now older and they all have moved on from that stage of their career. Sometimes I have the feeling that Depeche Mode and Erasure are just continuing for the fun of it. If it's successful then great if not, well then so be it. Let's face it, at the end of the day both Erasure and Depeche Mode have pioneered electronic music and in doing so made enough money so that they don't have to work again (which is great). And the other question really is, what else could you achieve / invent if you are Depeche Mode or Erasure? You shaped electronic music, had major success, number one albums and singles, lots of dedicated fans etc. and nothing is new in the music business these days anyway. Everything has been recycled and redone so it's great that both bands seem to have found their niche. Also, I don't know one band that really has released its masterpiece at the end of its career (maybe Talk Talk with Spirit of Eden) and in a way that is where Depeche Mode and Erasure are... I am just glad that I was able to experience their heydays during the late 80s and early 90s and everything else is really a bonus in my eyes.

Depeche Mode are to issue Video Singles Collection, in November, a first-ever career-spanning anthology of promo videos and short films.

The three-DVD package is being issued by Sony (they acquired the rights to the band’s catalogue in July last year) and spans the years 1981-2013. It features more than four hours of newly restored music videos and over two hours of new audio commentary on specific individual clips, recorded by members of Depeche Mode especially for this release.

The band have worked with some ground-breaking directors over the years, including Julien Temple, Anton Corbijn, D.A. Pennebaker, John Hillcoat and others.

“It’s been amazing to go back and relive all the experiences and memories these videos evoke after all these years”, the band are quoted as saying, adding, “It’s incredible to have all our videos finally together in one place and we’re hoping our fans enjoy this journey through time as much as we did.”

Excitingly for fans, Video Singles Collection is the first in “a series of band-approved retrospective projects” so we wait with anticipation to see what will follow. If you have any suggestions, then leave a comment.

Video Singles Collection is released on 11 November 2016

While I like Depeche mode music, I can't say I like to watch their videos that much. I will wait to get this on the cheap

I'm also a huge DM fan, but I'm not that interested in this...

Agreed.   I used to be a huge DM fan, although, I think their last few albums bordered on dull.   Videos are essentially 4 minute commercials and do we really need more advertising in the world?

I've waited many years for a DM videos collection, and the track listing is perfect.  BUT it's on DVD and I still can't decide if I should support it with my purchase.  I don't want to buy it now only to see a Blu-ray be released later.

After some deliberation, darn it I broke down and bought the Video Singles Collection.  And it's really nice.  I hate the fact that it's DVD, but hey DVD is retro now right?  And retro is fashionable.

Who am I kidding though?  It's f****ing Depeche Mode and I had to have it.  Most of these later videos I've never seen and it truly is an encyclopedic singles collection.  Highly recommended!

Looking forward to the new DM album Spirit also.  My fingers are crossed that Martin won't let Dave write any more songs on this one!  Though sadly, not all of Martin's songs the last few years have been gold either.  Soft Touch/Raw Nerve is awful.

A short interview with Dave appeared recently where he confirmed that while he did contribute a couple of the tracks, it's the least amount of Dave-penned songs on a DM album in a long time. And he's ok with that.

I've lost touch with DM, I really don't connect with their music anymore. There was a time when I would buy everything DM but it's been downhill since Exciter.  Violator was the crown jewel that they have never even come close to again. goes to show the influence that Alan Wilder had in  DM Sound.
