Depeche Mode: Violator

I've never been a fan of Depeche Mode and for the past many years I've described them as the most overrated band in the world. Fans! Come on! Be honest. Don't tell me that the band have released just one decent song for 15 years (OK - I admit to liking "It's No Good")!!
But 15 years ago Depeche Mode released the excellent "Violator", which features some of the best songs ever recorded by the band (though the horrible and overplayed "Personal Jesus" isn't among them). Unfortunately they haven't reached those "heights" again, so to me this album stands very much alone in the Depeche Mode "universe".
Best songs:
1) Enjoy The Silence
2) Halo
3) Policy Of Truth
