Happy 25th Birthday Some Great Reward.

The fourth album by Depeche Mode, Some Great Reward went to #5 in the UK and #51 in the US.

The first single from the album, "People are People," went to #13 in the US, and #4 in the UK, which at the time was the highest any of the band's singles had charted. "People are People" went to #1 in Germany.

The second single from Some Great Reward was "Master and Servant," released on Aug. 20, 1984. "Master and Servant" went to #6 in the UK and narrowly avoided being banned by the BBC. The song was banned by many radio stations in the US, but still managed to get into the Billboard Hot 100 charts (#87).

Some Great Reward's third single, "Blasphemous Rumours"/"Somebody," was Depeche Mode's first double A-side single. The song(s) went to #16 in the UK and did not chart in the US, but went to #1 on Los Angeles radio station KROQ's "Flashback 500" countdown in 1998.

Some Great Reward features the Waist High favorite "Lie To Me," and Martin Gore at his finest; "Experiences have a lasting impression, but words once spoken don't mean a lot now."

Some Great Reward was completely remastered in 2006 and released in "three different formats (CD, hybrid SACD/CD + DVD, and LP). The hybrid SACD version featured the album in a remastered 5.1 surround sound presentation."
