PRESS RELEASE


DEPECHE MODE



Some Great Reward is the title of the fifth Sire album from Depeche Mode, one of the most popular and innovative bands of the current English invasion. Rarely has an album been more appropriately titled: each of Some Great Reward's nine original cuts reveals aspects of the group's songwriting, performing and record- ing skills that have been maturing since the band formed in 1980. Mode members Dave Gahan, Martin Gore, Andy Fletcher and Alan Wilder, are working at the top of their very impressive form and the result is progressive music with heart, soul and passion.

Original - pressed by MPO, without barcode. This is the initial UK CD edition. However, the release date is currently unknown. Even the band's official website www.depechemode.com cannot provide a release date. What we do know, however, is that it was not released on September 24th 1984 with the vinyl version, but some time after 4th December 1984, when MPO pressed its first commercial CD.
