Depeche Mode - Freestate

Critics panned this for being the darkest DM album to date, but what I notice is this is the birth of the truely electro-acoustic DM. And a few songs have really jazzy arrangements.
PS: The sound saturation seems to come from the digital source. As such, I wonder if its a bug or a feature.
