Author & Special Guests

Thanks to our latest Facebook poll, we're tackling our first tribute album - For The Masses, featuring sixteen covers of Depeche Mode songs. Both Tim and Jason were familiar with this release back in the 90s but haven't revisited it in quite a while. Does it stand the test of time? Are any of the covers better than the originals? And can any explain the temporary fascination with Rammstein? Tune in and find out.

Does This album bring back some great vibes?
