  1. 9.0 |   music OMH

    Another stellar album to add to their canon

  2. 8.0 |   NME

    It soon reveals itself to be a perfect pairing. ‘I Can’t Stay’, in particular, is absolutely beautiful

  3. 8.0 |   The Guardian

    Gahan's brooding power is central to possibly his best work since Depeche's 1990 Violator: magnificent songs about demons and failings, morality and mortality, regret, faith and devotion

  4. 8.0 |   All Music

    Not just an exciting meeting of troubled minds, but a well designed full-length, offering a persuasive rainy day soundtrack that works even when there's not a cloud in the sky

  5. 8.0 |   Mojo

    His trademark delivery brings gravitas to Machin's creeping, strings-swaddled, Morricone-like mood. Print edition only

  6. 7.0 |   Consequence Of Sound

    With a dash of Nick Cave and a shade of Scott Walker, the disc is a reminder of why Soulsavers’ atmospheric hymns work so well and have earned spots in countless film and television scores

  7. 7.0 |   Uncut

    Gahan has never sounded better, his voice bringing power, purpose and unity to a project that's previously delivered less than thew sum of its parts. Print edition only

  8. 6.0 |   Independent on Sunday

    A barrel of laughs it ain't. Over sparse, semi-orchestral backing, Gahan tackles the big ones

  9. 6.0 |   Q

    Rolling revue gets into a groove with synth-pop icon. Print edition only

  10. 5.0 |   Under The Radar

    A good and, at times, even great album. It just ultimately fails to live up to the standard set by its predecessors

  11. 4.0 |   Bowlegs

    Despite a couple of rousing tunes (the bright Longest Day, the devotional Just Try), this is a pretty dull affair
