18. DEPECHE MODE – “DELTA MACHINE” (DELUXE EDITION) Of the 80’s titans still standing, Depeche Mode seem like the most unlikely to tread new ground, and yet, “Delta Machine” is their strongest effort since 1997’s “Ultra.” Somehow, they have adopted a minimalist approach and it sounds strikingly of the moment and fresh. (Single “Heaven” is one of the strongest bits of gospel-blues they have ever produced.) They never sound bored. They never sound tired. It sounds like the work of a band revving up to make another series of epic statements. With any luck, Depeche Mode can continue issuing classics of this caliber. This is exactly the kind of album you want a veteran group to release. Depeche Mode’s future is bright!
