Depeche Mode new album

I will try again when I might be in a more receptive mood, but initial impressions of the first few tracks is that it's a terrible dirge and a hard listen.
Not immediately overawed but a few tracks were better than others, to be honest I can say the same thing about the latest Lana Del Rey having played that as well today.

Maybe just my mood
It gets better for a couple of listens but it's no Black Celebration. I just feel the music they produce and my tastes have diverged massively.
