iTunes Review

Said to be the final album of a planned trilogy with producer Ben Hiller (Playing the Angel and Sounds of the Universe being the other two) Delta Machine is the most polarizing album of their storied career. Either you embrace their downcast, industrial-warehouse gloom or you pine for the days when they admitted peeks of sunshine into their synthetic hearts. The "I Am A Rock" sentiments of "My Little Universe" either compel you to relate or to resist. Audio genius Flood mixes the album for the darkest hues imaginable and David Gahan brings forth three of his most convincing compositions with the low-synth burble of "Secret to An End," the seductive nightclub bop of "Broken" and the David Bowie-Berlin-trilogy feel of "Should Be Higher." The "delta" in the machine here pulls up for the blues-based riff of "Slow." "The Child Inside" heats up like an incubated crib. "Soft Touch/ Raw Nerve" kicks up the aggression for a rare display of celebration in the music, even if Martin Gore isn't about to abandon his cloudy disposition for anyone. The Deluxe Version adds four bonus tracks and a 28-page digital booklet of photographs by Anton Corbjin.

Will the real Depeche Mode please stand-up!

I was very unhappy after listening to this entire album...I really wanted to like it, I really did! A huge DM fan ever since the early days of Just Can't Get Enough...I want that DM back. I'll even take World In My Eyes or Enjoy the Silence, heck Personal Jesus would work (and that is one of my least favorites). These last two albums have been a bust...please DM, no strike three...I am begging you! Go back to your roots...thoughtful, interesting, somewhat melancholy, dance tunes...shoot, even (the song) Black Celebration was rainbow happy compared to this train wreck. Very sad day in DM-ville!

Delta Machine is relevant.......

Listening to the streaming of new DM album. The boys don't let down and have once again produced a quality aural sculputurethat is modern, complex and emotional all at once. I hope they tour. They are excellent perfoming LIVE. Long live Depeche Mode.


I'm streaming this right now and it feels just like Depeche Mode is supposed to sound. They're not trying to make music; they are letting it flow from them. This is very refreshing.

Originally a product of Britain's new romantic movement, Depeche Mode went on to become the quintessential electropop band of the 1980s. One of the first acts to establish a musical identity based completely around the use of synthesizers, they began their existence as a bouncy dance-pop outfit but gradually developed a darker, more dramatic sound that ultimately positioned them as one of the most successful alternative bands of their era. The roots of Depeche Mode date to 1976, when Basildon, England-based...
