Released on 24 September 1984, Some Great Reward is the fourth studio album by Depeche Mode. The album peaked at No. 5 in the United Kingdom and No. 51 in the United States, and was supported by the Some Great Reward Tour.

Melody Maker’s Barry McIlheney hailed Some Great Reward and noted a ‘truly remarkable development’ in Dave Gahan’s voice, concluding that while ‘it used to be okay to slag this bunch off because of their lack of soul, their supposed synthetic appeal, their reluctance to really pack a punch’, the album ‘just trashes such bad old talk into the ground and demands that you now sit up and take notice of what is happening here, right under your nose’.

Sounds' Carole Linfield felt the balance of powerful music and personal lyrics was just right: ‘The combination of the Depeche strength of vocal and now the Depeche delicacy is going to be hard to beat… This package is a carefully assorted, daintily arranged symphony… one that carries emotion, devotion and yet never gives way to feebleness or predictability.’
