Praise for Delta Machine:
“Delta Machine is the strongest album the group has put out this century… [Depeche Mode] still feels fresh 13 albums into their career.” -Entertainment Weekly
“One of the best recordings in Depeche Mode’s catalog, and maybe even the best. It’s impressive to see a band get so far into their career without losing their desire to experiment and explore, or their ability to surprise.” -Esquire
“The British electronic group that continues to dominate the movement it pioneered 30 years ago delivers a hefty, exhilarating combo of pop precision and industrial clank on its 13th album.” – USA Today
“Delta celebrates brooding faith and slippery solace without scrimping on Depeche’s trademark blackstrobe punishment.” – Rolling Stone
