The full addition of Alan Wilder to Depeche Mode 's lineup created a perfect troika that would last another 11 years, as the combination of Martin Gore 's songwriting, Wilder 's arranging, and David Gahan 's singing and live star power resulted in an ever more compelling series of albums and singles.
