Having just heard the new single from Depeche Mode, taken from their latest album Delta Machine, I have to say I’m not impressed.
The track lacks the electro beats always so synonymous with the Mode, and comes across as rather preachy and dreary.
For a track called Heaven, it wasn’t heavenly listening. It does beg the question whether the band have run creatively dry after stints away on solo projects since their last album Sounds of the Universe, which wasn’t of their usually quality.
Some songs by Depeche Mode taking a bit of listening to get into, but I am failing to feel the need to listen to ‘Heaven’ again any time soon.
