Released on 5 October 1981, Speak & Spell is the debut studio album by Depeche Mode. It was the band’s only album to feature Vince Clarke, and is much lighter in tone than their subsequent releases. The album peaked at No. 10 on the UK Albums Chart.

Upon its release, Speak & Spell received generally positive reception from critics. Record Mirror praised Depeche Mode’s smart simplicity and noted the album offers ‘much to admire and little to disappoint.’ In a retrospective review for AllMusic, Ned Raggett described the album as ‘at once both a conservative, functional pop record and a groundbreaking release’, as well as ‘an undiluted joy.’
