DEPECHE MODE DELTA MACHINE

Depeche Mode’s new CD “DELTA MACHINE”

Depeche Mode’s new CD “DELTA MACHINE” has the group back with the electro-grundge sound that harkens back to their mid ’90s material. The group now features a full-time drummer and Martin seems to play guitars most of the time.

DEPECHE MODE DELTA MACHINE

‘Welcome To My World’ opens the album with heavy beats and an ominus soundscape.

The first single release ‘Angel’ is as heavy with lots of clicks and buzzing chirps.

‘Heaven’ is the second single that features duets with lead singer Dave Gahan and lyracist Martin Gore.

‘Broken’ is a likeable mellow tune with a sinister electro beat.
“You can’t fake it, I can feel it, You were broken from the start”

‘Should Be Higher’ opens like a rush of fresh air at a slow pace with a big bass drum beat with a progressive drive.
“Your lies are more attractive then the truth”

‘Soothe My Soul’ is the third single release and perhaps my favorite and it’s danceable. A lusty song about knocking down doors and getting what ya need.
“There’s only one way to soothe my soul!”

‘Alone’ is a hypnotic track about looking back at past love and circumstance.
“I was there when you needed me most…”

On a scale of 1 to 10, lamest to greatest, I give Delta Machine a 7.
Will it be a classic? Probably not.
Would I listen to it again? Yes.

Depeche Mode play live at Shoreline on Thursday, September 28th with Crystal Castles opening.
For a great live preview performance, search for the Depeche Mode “Live On Lettermen” 2013 webcast!
