Depeche Mode fans have named the band's 1993 album, "Songs of Faith and Devotion" the best of their 34-year career.
In a Gigwise poll, the album narrowly beat "Violator" to take the top spot, with their 1990 release placing second in the poll. "Black Celebration" placed third, "Music for the Masses" fourth, and "Ultra" was named their fifth best album.
Released in the early nineties, "Songs of Faith and Devotion" is one of the most successful albums of Depeche Mode's career, hitting No. 1 across the globe, including the UK and US charts. Recording the album was a notoriously tricky experience for the band, being done so among claustrophobic conditions for the bandmates, who lived and worked together in the same property. The results were, however, a huge success, with critical acclaim and huge sales following the toil of studio time.
The album ultimately produced some of the biggest singles of the band's career, with "I Feel You," "Walking in My Shoes," "Condemnation" and "In Your Room" all scoring huge success on charts across the globe.
