I heard the second single, 'Soothe my Soul', from Depeche Mode's new album 'Delta Machine' on youtube.
I also heard 'Should be Higher'. These were performances on the David Letterman show. Finally, I heard 'Angel' on youtube, a leaked song from the album which is due to be released next Monday.
I hated the first single 'Heaven'. Depeche Mode's transition to rock and blues is pretty much complete. It is no longer the cagey electronic band which I like in 1990.
This pretty much confirms that I will not be buying the new album come Monday. This ends a long association. I haven't found Depeche Mode to be compelling since 1990 anyway.
