      Echoing what everyone else has said: this is the pressing to get. I have three different pressings of this album, and this outdoes all of them.

        Just scooped this version up at a thrift store. So glad I did because it’s a perfect pressing. The analog sounds really thump and shine and having the longer version of Leave In Silence is worth it alone (starts with an extended synth arpeggio not in the shorter version). Plus the faster, instrumental version of My Secret Garden is a welcome treat. This album never sounded so good!

          Excellent pressing. Very dynamic, not as flat as Japanese variants use to be. This is a bassy album but this press is perfectly balanced, bass-wise. Can't compare it with other vinyl pressings but this makes a nice collectible (if you manage to get the complete version with OBI and lyrics sheet). Also features a different version of Leave In Silence (Longer) and includes "Further Excerpts From: My Secret Garden", this makes this version unique.

            While I usually prefer the original UK editions of Depeche albums, this very US CD version of "A Broken Frame" seems to be working much better in terms of an album, the sequence of the tracks adding to the completeness of the work, considerably lessening its "transitional" characteristics - the extended mix of "Leave In Silence" (which features a cold ending) does far more justice opening the entire album, continuing with the regular album version of "My Secret Garden" and on - plus adding the b-side "Further Excerpts From: 'My Secret Garden'" between "The Meaning Of Love" and "A Photograph Of You", also adds to a better listening dynamic the original UK version of the album, when compared, audibly lacks.

                    Interesting enough: these are pressed from the very same 2007 remastered plates, which is proven by scratched out 66035 – the original DMLP2 laquer identifier.

                        The original Mute UK presses are the way to hear Depeche Mode. I’ve compared this version against the US Sire issue and the Japanese issue and both of those are insufficient compared to the original UK release which just has better definition and a more natural warmth to the sound.
