Delta Machine Part 2
By Hugh Morrus
Very similar to Delta Machine. Plodding & fairly uninteresting. I liked "Sounds of the Universe", so it isn't that I don't like their newer material.
It's a good CD
I actually like this CD. It's better than Delta Machine. Going Backwards is great but You Move is amazing with its lush electronic beats. Dave Gahans song Cover Me is amazing. Eternal, Martins solo song is beautiful with its lyrics. Don't judge Spirit by the samples because the more you listen to this the better it gets.
The greatest electroband
By NYC in TEXAS
This is one of the best albums I have ever heard. Any true DM fan would love this album. And they have managed to keep it all fresh and new after being in business since 81 and still making wonderful albums. I hope they have more in them. My FAVE BAND ALLTIME!!!!
Excellent DM album!
An awesome new album by the Mode! It gets better with every listen. The opener "Going Backwards" is straight up perfection. There's a lot of classic DM sprinkled throughout the album.
Very good album
I couldn't agree more stop letting people rate the preorder. This an excellent album the whole way through. If you don't know Depeche Mode then keep your reviews to yourself. Revolution is not the strongest song on here but still a good song. Please listen to the whole album before reviewing one song doesn't make an album.

A really bad and boring album...There's No good Music For the Masses anymore from DM.
I have been a DM fan for over 30 years. I feel as if they have come full circle. well done.
A *Must* Listen
Calling this cd political is short sighted, it is a very personal piece of work. The songs challenge you, your way of thinking, your actions, and your level of responsibility. Not only to yourself but to your exes, the poor and the "bad" guys. Depeche Mode is as usual vague as to who the big bad is so the listener makes the choice personally. Stand out songs "Scum", "You Move", "Cover Me", "Poison Heart" and "Poor Man" make this worth the listen. "Where's the Revolution" is icing on the cake. The cd is moody, ethereal, atmospheric, dancy and intriguing. Don't miss this!!
This is a very good DM album!
Good lord, get over yourself. All you folks crapping on this album because of your political beliefs should get over it. DM has ALWAYS been political in one way or another. The album itself is really quite good. The opening 6 songs would stand up to most of their albums with no problem. I love it. I don't have an issue with the politics, because that's the world we live in right now. Also, some of the best albums ever recorded had alot to say about politics/social injustice/etc. The entire album is really good, and I have to say after going on a DM listening binge the last several days, holds up very well with their earlier work. I'm just dissapointed that they aren't coming to Atlanta on the tour...I'll be making a trip to Nashville to see them. This would be a 4 1/2* review, but I thought I would give it 5* to offset some of the idiotic political reviews I've read.
Sigh. DM hear me out
What I do not like about this is Dave's singing I really do not like it when he draws out looooong dragging out notes, sounds whiny and contrived and, we NEED MORE Martin singing. When Dave cuts the singing of words shorter WAAAY better!! The songs that have Martin on them are the more palatable song. I seriously hate being negative beacuase DM is my #1 favorite always.
Forgive me guys, I still love you.
