“So this is only an instant, snap appraisal, and who knows, repeated listens may reveal flaws. But for now, Delta Machine roars out of the traps as a supremely confident album by a reinvigorated, inventive Depeche Mode. It isn’t, of course, VCMG with vocals, and there are threads here from the more recent albums. But texturally this is a very rich electronic record, rough around the edges and a huge amount of fun – there is some of the campest Depeche Mode material in here since their earliest days. I’d hazard to guess that my initial assessment of this as the best, most powerful, gothic, twisted, electronic album since Violator.”
