X1 & X2:
Notes on Sex
The B-sides

Sex, disc six, has a good sampling of Depeche Mode's b-sides career. Although nowhere near as comprehensive as the Pet Shop Boys' Alternative, in the same spirit, this disc shows us the 'off-beat' side of Martin's writtings (and indeed Alan's In Your Memory, as well as Vince's Ice Machine and Shout).

The cover photo, I feel, harks back to the The Meaning Of Love single with it's use of daisies.
