Many,if not most of all electro acts have since then taken that precise album asthe guideline when it came to quality control of their work. The meticulousproduction by sound genius Alan Wilder, the emotional yet very strong songwriting of Martin Lee Gore and the powerful vocals by the band's charismatic frontman Dave Gahan.
