Title - 'Best of Depeche Mode, Vol. 1' (CD/DVD)
Artist - Depeche Mode

'Best of Depeche Mode, Volume 1' is the fourth hits compilation from the Basildon quartet-turned-trio, but it's the first to cover their entire 25 year recording history. With the exception of 'Black Celebration,' the CD samples every studio album in their catalogue, with an additional unreleased track, "Martyr." As for this new track Martyr, it is a great song. Wonderful synthesizers, guitar and vocals, overall a classic Depeche Mode track. Recorded during the Playing the Angel sessions, the band felt that this song didn't fit the "dark" mood of PTA, so it was left off the album. However, it has found it's home on this 'Best Of' compilation. As for the second disc, it is a DVD with all the videos featured on the CD (the first disc). Sadly, many of these videos are featured on the 'Singles 86-98' DVD set. Therefore, many people will be paying twice for videos they already have. However, videos like "Dream On" and "Suffer Well" make it worth the investment for this new set. There's also a documentary featuring the band along with management, producers, and former members Vince Clarke and Alan Wilder. Those who own the recently released CD/DVD reissues will recognize this clip, as it features interviews also used for the documentaries included in the CD/DVD reissues. This hits collection isn't flawless (no "Question of Time"), but for a single-disc collection, you can't go wrong with 'Best of Depeche Mode Volume 1.'
