Yet another reason not to trust All the Depeche Mode SACD blow chunks, they have been compressed/EQd to hell. Get the original CDs which have full dynamic range.

The original CDs, while not perfect, are significantly better with full dynamic range. ... more

You must mean the 45 rpm mastered by KEVIN GRAY & Steve Hoffman. Notice how Kevin's name is first as it should be. And I agree the SACD sounds like crap. ... more
