I bought the vinyl reissue of Violator and was greatly impressed by the audio and the classy packaging. On the back of that I ordered Speak and Spell.
Was it as good an effort as Violator? My original copy of this LP looks and sounds vastly inferior in every respect. Enjoyable surround mix, which reveals some synth lines I hadn't noticed before. This brings a freshness to some songs that now sound a bit flat in simple stereo. Not always what I'd have put on the extra channels - maybe missed a trick or two here - but this is a subjective opinion, and I'm very glad they've been done at all.
It was worth the effort guys. Was there not enough space unlikely, I have SACDs that last much longer or is it some obscure copyright reason concerning the format?
Why complain? I have the original CD with 16 tracks so it is not a problem, but a simple question - why the discrepancy?

The 30 minute documentary "Depeche Mode (Do we really have to give up our day jobs) is priceless for any old Mode-head, with a lot of old footage and current interviews with all involved in making this classic album.
