Depeche Mode – Should Be Higher (2013)

Scroll down to content

This starts off as the murkiest track yet with a purposeful 4/4 whip-crack beat. There’s now no doubt that Delta Machine is the the darkest and most violent Depeche Mode material in years. Lyrically, the title and lyrics of holes in infected arms and lies , succumbing to bliss and so on suggest another addition to the DM canon of songs that might be about smack, or love, or both. There’s another sky-straining chorus that makes this brilliant stadium pop, and yet more evidence of the weakness of the Anglo Saxon ear. Across Europe, from Volgograd to Turin, Helsinki to Lodz they’ll come in their thousands for songs as mighty as this… while here in Britain we like to watch Coldplay and Muse. The disgrace of our nation. [Source]
