I can't tell you how much I wished Flood would have produced Delta Machine instead of just doing the mixing. Ben Hillier's trilogy of DM albums has been underwhelming. DM caught lightning in a bottle between Black Celebration and Songs of Faith and Devotion. Possibly the best 4 album stretch of any band ever. Of course a certain Charles Alan Wilder had quite a bit to do with that. Alan leaving the band was devastating even though ULTRA was quite good.
