LOVELY COPY - PLAYED ONCE (if at all)

The full addition of Alan Wilder to Depeche Mode's lineup created a perfect troika that would last another 11 years, as the combination of Martin Gore's songwriting, Wilder's arranging, and David Gahan's singing and live star power resulted in an ever more compelling series of albums and singles. Construction Time Again, the new lineup's first full effort, is a bit hit and miss nonetheless, but when it does hit, it does so perfectly. Right from the album's first song, "Love in Itself," something is clearly up; Depeche never sounded quite so thick with its sound before, with synths arranged into a mini-orchestra/horn section and real piano and acoustic guitar spliced in at strategic points. Two tracks later, "Pipeline" offers the first clear hint of an increasing industrial influence (the bandmembers were early fans of Einstürzende Neubauten), with clattering metal samples and oddly chain gang-like lyrics and vocals. The album's clear highlight has to be "Everything Counts," a live staple for years, combining a deceptively simple, ironic lyric about the music business with a perfectly catchy but unusually arranged blending of more metallic scraping samples and melodica amid even more forceful funk/hip-hop beats. Elsewhere, on "Shame" and "Told You So," Gore's lyrics start taking on more of the obsessive personal relationship studies that would soon dominate his writing. Wilder's own songwriting contributions are fine musically, but lyrically, "preachy" puts it mildly, especially the environment-friendly "The Landscape Is Changing."

LABELS: NEAR MINT
An immaculate pair of labels - one light spindle trace on one side

VINYL Visual: NEAR MINT
Pristine vinyl surfaces - some audibly harmless in-vinyl pressing blemishes but no later marks
VINYL Audio: MINT
In keeping with its once played status my careful play-check at loud volume found nothing to fault - a beautiful 'as-new' copy
SLEEVE: EXCELLENT
Apart from some rub to the spine/black colour on the back, the sleeve is as crisp, clean and fresh as the day it was made
INNER SLEEVE: NEAR MINT
No marks, seam splits or wear - just a little natural record impression
