1987's Music for the Masses saw further alterations in the band's sound and working methods. For the first time a producer not related to Mute, David Bascombe, was called to assist with the recording sessions (although, according to Alan Wilder, his role ended up being more that of an engineer), and the band, for the most part, sided its sampling of industrial sounds in which their music used to rely, in favour of more synth experimentation. While the chart performance of the singles "Strangelove", "Never Let Me Down Again" and "Behind the Wheel" proved to be disappointing in Great Britain, they performed well in countries such as Canada, Brazil, West Germany, South Africa, Sweden and Switzerland, often reaching the top 10. Record Mirror described it as "the most accomplished and sexy Mode album to date" and it made a breakthrough in the American market, something which the band had failed to achieve with their previous albums. As a testament to the album´s success, in later world tours, several songs from Music for the Masses have appeared in tour setlists.
