1.0 out of 5 stars Appalling - not worthy of filling the shelves of Pound Land, 15 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: DELTA MACHINE REMIXES (LTD EDITION) (Audio CD)
Is this an official Depeche Mode release? Surely not! I can not believe the band would sanction such a low quality collection.

I have paid above the odds for this and feel ripped off and annoyed!!

The sound quality is appalling with Dave and Martin's vocal muffled and reduced to the sound you'd expect from a child's toy.

The remixes either sound just the same as another 3 of the tracks on the CD or they sound so close to the original that you wonder why they bothered.

Furthermore the quality of the remixes has the " I did this on my PC " feel about them.

Not one of the songs is enhanced by a remix instead you get something resembling department store muzak.

It is not clear from the packaging who actually remixed these tracks, though it feels like it is the same bloke.

Do not waste your money!

Spread the word Mode fans!!!

I had already reviewed this, giving it one star and saying that it is a bootleg. That review was removed by Amazon. Nice work. Due to Amazon's delightful ethics, I don't shop on this site anyway, so it was no skin off my nose.

Having said this, it really is *very* obvious from the packaging - particularly the typography on the rear cover - that it's a bootleg, and most Depeche Mode fans would recognise it as such.
