From 1990's Violator this is "Policy Of Truth" by Depeche Mode enjoyed with the "Capitol Mix" version, a.k.a. 12inch Maxi-mix and of course, my second video-remix tribute for one of my fav band of all-time.Hope you'll remember another of their biggest-selling, also, US charting-hit. :)
Review 1989-20's D.M. period.- In mid-1989, Depeche Mode began recording in Milan with producer Flood and engineer Fran├žois Kevorkian. The initial result of this session was the single "Personal Jesus", which featured a drum-based sound. Prior to its release, advertisements were placed in the personal columns of UK regional newspapers with the words "Your own personal Jesus." Later, the ads included a phone number one could dial to hear the song. The ensuing controversy helped propel the single to number 13 on the UK charts, becoming one of their biggest sellers; in the US, it was their first gold single and their first Top 40 hit since "People Are People", eventually becoming the biggest-selling 12-inch single in Warner Bros. Records' history. The song has been covered by (amongst others) Johnny Cash, Gravity Kills, and Marilyn Manson, and was notably sampled in the song "Beware of the Dog" by Jamelia.
In February 1990, "Enjoy the Silence", became one of Depeche Mode's most successful singles to date, reaching #6 in the UK; a few months later in the US, it became Depeche Mode's first (and to date, only) Top 10 hit, reaching #8, and earning the band a second gold single. It won 'British single' at the 1991 Brit Awards. To promote their new album Violator, they held an in-store autograph signing at the Tower Records music store in Los Angeles, which attracted approximately 17,0 fans and caused a near-riot. Violator went on to reach Top 10 in the UK and US. It has also been certified triple platinum in America, selling over 3.5 million units there. The subsequent World Violation Tour was another notable success, with 40,0 tickets sold within eight hours for the New York Giants Stadium (in East Rutherford, New Jersey) show, and 48,0 tickets for the Los Angeles Dodger Stadium show sold within an hour of going on sale. Two more singles from the album, "Policy of Truth" (reached # 15 at Billboard Hot 100 singles) and "World in My Eyes" were UK and US hits.
This album is the first of the band to achieve the Top 10 on the Billboard 200 (#7) and stand 74 weeks in the chart.
In 1993 Songs of Faith and Devotion saw them experimenting with more organic arrangements, based as much on heavily distorted electric guitars and live drums (played by Alan Wilder, whose debut as a studio drummer was the track "Clean" on Violator) as on synthesizers. Live strings, uillean pipes and female gospel vocals were other new additions to the band's sound.
The album debuted at #1 in both the UK and the US, on the heels of the bluesy, grunge-influenced single "I Feel You". Depeche Mode were the first British alternative band to have a number 1 hit album in the Billboard 200 album charts. The 14-month Devotional world tour followed. It was documented by a concert video of the same name, and a second live album, Songs of Faith and Devotion Live. The live album was essentially a track-by-track reproduction of the eponymous album, designed to help boost sales figures of the studio album, and it proved to be a critical and commercial failure. Dave Gahan's heroin addiction was starting to affect his behaviour, causing him to become more erratic and introverted. Martin Gore experienced a series of seizures, and Andy Fletcher declined to participate in the second "exotic" leg of the tour, due to "mental instability". During that period, he was replaced on-stage by Daryl Bamonte, who had worked with the band as a personal assistant for many year.
In mid-1996, Gahan entered a drug rehabilitation program to battle his heroin addiction. With Gahan out of rehab in 1996, Depeche Mode held recording sessions with producer Tim Simenon; the next year, the album Ultra and its two preceding singles, "Barrel of a Gun" and "It's No Good", were released. The album again debuted at #1 in the UK and reached the US Top 5. However, the band have recognised Ultra's poor reception; live dates have seen only one Ultra song being played, or on many tour dates, none whatsoever.
A second singles compilation The Singles (86-98) was released in 1998, preceded by the new single "Only When I Lose Myself", which had been recorded during the "Ultra" sessions. The band set off on a 4 month tour. The same year, a tribute album For the Masses was released, featuring Depeche Mode covers by bands such as The Smashing Pumpkins, The Cure, Rammstein and The Deftones.
