Here’s the Electronic Press Kit for the forthcoming Depeche Mode album Delta Machine.
While we’ve cooled on DM over the last, oh, decade and a half, what we’re hearing from this record seems to have a certain something that was lacking from the period that gave us Exciter, Playing The Angel and Sounds of the Universe. That punchy, fat stomp that holds together “Soothe My Soul” reminds us of “Personal Jesus” without sounding just like it while the sleazy “Goodbye” has an organic oomph that recalls Songs of Faith and Devotion. We’re cautiously optimistic, which is a nice feeling.
Updated to add: the album is now streaming on iTunes. Click here and click the play button on the album art and yup.
