Ahh, Document, one of the greats.

Although at the time I actually listened to Music for the Masses more, Depeche Mode's last gasp before going "pop" I think.

Also have to note Midnight Oil's Diesel and Dust which I just finished writing a big blog post about (plug plug)

Others I fondly remember
Icehouse Man of Colours
Sinead O'Connor The Lion and the Cobra

Well, you led off with a pix of my favorite album form '87. And you got Sonic Youth in there, too. I would add Yo La Tengo's New Wave Hot Dogs. But, I'm me.
