About this album

Delta Machine is the thirteenth studio album by English electronic music band Depeche Mode. It has been released on 22 March 2013 by Columbia Records. Recorded in 2012 in Santa Barbara, California and New York City, the album was produced by Ben Hillier and mixed by Flood. A deluxe edition was also released, containing a bonus disc with four bonus tracks, as well as a 28-page hardcover book including photos by Anton Corbijn.

On 15 March 2013, the band premiered the album’s upcoming second single, “Soothe My Soul”, on Shaun Keaveny’s BBC Radio 6 morning show. Following the album’s release, Depeche Mode will embark on The Delta Machine Tour, kicking off in Nice’s Palais Nikaia on 4 May 2013, and wrapping up the European leg of the tour in Minsk, Belarus on 29 July

    Too all of you ranting that this is worst DM album ... remember, there's still SOTU. Overall I don't know what's so bad on Delta Machine, I'm enjoying it pretty much.

    Worst Depeche Mode album. :/ [6] But that doesn't mean it's a bad record, by any means.

    I'm one of the biggest Depeche Mode fans, I enjoy them in vinyl most of the times, I should have like 3.000.000 plays or more but when I try to listen to this album I just have to stop. I'm sorry I did my best but it can't get into me. I like SOTU when everyone says it was a piece of shit, of course, not their best but this one...

    I find myself enjoying this one a lot, despite the critics and even the fans and their opinions, Angel, Heaven, Secret To The End, Soothe My Soul and Should Be Higher as highlights

    I can't believe this piece of shit has more listener than "A Broken Frame". A real Depeche Mode fan understands what I say.

    Считаю, что для группы с таких стажем, альбом такого уровня -- это прорыв! :) I think for such a longlasting band with a great and big back catalogue when it is already hard to find something new to write and sing about, this album is a big, big breakthrough! This albums is just full of emotion and energy, it truly has that "nerve" David is singing about in one of the songs. In terms of Depeche Mode style/work this album is not as experimental as lets us say "Ultra" or "Exciter" but it finally has that real "depeche-modeness" they were probably lacking for quite a while. An album worth listening!

    Ultra=PTA>Exciter>Delta>SOTU. Welcome To My World, Broken and Soft Touch ruin this amazing album. Delete these tracks, reconstruct tracklist (Angel=> Should Be Higher => Universe => Soothe My Soul => Secret => Alone => Child Inside => Heaven => Slow => Goodbye) and discover how amazing this one could be.

    Better than Exciter, better than Sounds of the Universe, slighty under Playing the Angel. And miles away from Ultra, but still good album with stunning production.

    As a whole It was too dense for me, but there's a few moments on it that makes it worth it.
