Violator cover

The first time I heard this band was one Sunday afternoon whilst listening to the UK chart rundown. I fell in love with their style of music straightaway and have never looked back since.  A wonderful live band that to date, I have seen 9 times and never been disappointed, Depeche Mode and their music play a large part in my life, with many happy memories to accompany them.

Violator is the album that I have probably played most in my collection, from the first track through to the last, for me it's almost, perfect!  As is the cover, a single rose stem on a black background, simple yet striking artwork and an image that was to be used throughout the 'Violator' promotional campaign and an image that quickly became an iconic album cover.
