Throwback Thursday: Depeche Mode

Depeche Mode are only a few days away from releasing their 13th album on March 26th, reviving the influential electronic sound that made the trio one of the most popular synth-rock bands of all time.

Judging from Delta Machine's first single "Heaven," Dave Gahan's effortless set of bellowing pipes paired with drawn-out chords can still paint a gloomy pop picture, similar to some of the band's most coveted mainstream hits from their heyday. The amazing thing about Depeche Mode is that their brooding, melodic hits from the 80s oozed the same maturity and honesty that this three-decades-later release does. They were paramount pop figures from the second they first gave it a shot.

Today, I thought it would be highly appropriate to throw back to what I consider to be three of the band's most timeless songs.
