Songs Of Faith And Devotion on CD

Single CD reissue of 2006 digitally remastered edition. Songs of Faith and Devotion is the eighth studio album by English electronic music band Depeche Mode, released in the United Kingdom on 22 March 1993. The album incorporated a more aggressive, darker rock-oriented tone than it's predecessor, Violator (1990), largely influenced by the emerging alternative rock and grunge scenes in the United States. Upon it's release, Songs of Faith and Devotion reached #1 in several countries, and became the first Depeche Mode album to debut atop the charts in both the UK and the US. Recording the album and the subsequent tour exacerbated growing tensions and difficulties within the band, prompting Alan Wilder to quit, making this album the final with him as a band member. The ordeal had exhausted their creative output following the enormous success they had enjoyed with Violator, leading to rumors and media speculation that the band would split.
