Ultra is a classic.

I've not heard the third one. I'm not interested in their early pop stuff. I think this one was a transitional record. I'm interested to know what you think of this one.

Nice pickups nordic. DM is my favorite band. You have to get Black Celebration. That is their best album as far as I'm concerned. Delta Machine took me a few listens before I warmed to it. It's certainly not their best but I enjoy it.

I doubt blast will be the right term Nordic.

I generally dislike 80's music other than the metal and rock of the time. I recommend Hysteria.

What genres? I would recommend Severed Heads - Rotund For Success. Wonderful electronic album. Camouflage is a decent Depeche Mode clone. Worth a listen for sure. OMD is poppy but still brilliant. New Order gets a high recommendation from me as well.

Post-punk: Ultravox is pretty popular so I'm sure you've heard of them before. The Sound & The Chameleons are both worthy additions to the genre.

Yaz or Yazoo is a great band. Vince Clarke was one of the original members of Depeche Mode.

Here's a list of a few electronic bands/artists I really like in addition to the ones above. Not all 80's mind you.

Jean Michel Jarre
Skinny Puppy
Kraftwerk
Coil
The Human League (they became ultra poppy)
Suicide
Men Without Hats
Peter Schilling
Alphaville

Exploring their discography is part of the fun so I won't tell you which one's to look for.
