Delta Machine

Delta Machine by Depeche Mode
Released: Mar 2013
Label: Columbia
In their 33rd year and on their 13th album, Depeche Mode don't particularly sound like they feel lucky on Delta Machine, which strips away the lush atmospheres of 2009's Sounds of the Universe in favor of sizzling guitar riffs and skeletal synthesizer figures; on the contrary, they grovel in grit and wallow in the blues, like the good S&M fans they've always been. A stark, gritty album, it merges the singed twang of Songs of Faith and Devotion with the queasy bleeps of Music for the Masses and even Speak & Spell.
