So much better than the last three albums. Depeche Mode haven't said their last word yet!

bought in in Poland, but there's sticker with different barcode on the normal barcode. It was under the foil, should it be considered as the same one or different one? I guess it's the same, but that's the first time i see barcode sticker under the foil

Better than Delta Machine my point of view is that Spirit is more electro than 13th album studio. Many songs are very deep, dark, and Dave Gahan is a very good songwriter too as Martin Lee Gore.
The jungle spirit mixes are very interesting and I know why it's named "Jungle". Long mixes with many surprise and more instrumental. Very good creative project

A so beautiful album better than Delta Machine
I prefer this lp more than Delta Machine too bluesy for me.
I think that Spirit and Delta Machine are like two twins but Spirit is more electro. I think than Dave Gahan has a good influence for Martin. Songs are more deeper.
I m going to discover now the disc number 2 (Jungle spirit mixes) : I'll do a feedback later

To early to judge the album compered to the former albums. This album sounds mature. Maybe it lacks a bit edge and spirituell youth. Nothing new, like they recycled something from every former album. To safe...
Thought it's cool dark, heavy and hard. It has the same atmosphere as Black Celebration.
David's voice is strong as always and Martin makes his well known fragile and emotional vibratos.
I'm not sure... no final verdict jet. But still it's DM and it's pretty good. The musical quality all through the album is high.

The Jungle Spirit Mixes (from deluxe CD) really needs their own 12" single release. Better than the whole album!

ATTN: Anyone stopping by hoping to gleam what the album sounds like based off of Discogs Genre/Style tags - this is not "synth-pop".

"Spirit" on a first listen digs its heels into the overarching sound of the last three releases - 'loudness war' lack of nuance in mixing/mastering, more guitars, live drumming, analogue/sawtooth synthesizers, abandonment of traditional pop structure. While DM have had songs in the style of "synth-pop" in the last 12 years ("Suffer Well" "Fragile Tension"), there is none of that here. "Spirit" has more in common stylistically to "Land of Rape and Honey"-era Ministry than "Black Celebration" (or any key synth-pop release by the band). Depeche Mode have abandoned pop music structures - this album weighs heavily toward Rock than Electronic music, with Industrial (or, Post-Industrial if it were an option) and EBM as styles. There's even more of a post-punk influence (track 9, "So Much Love") than 'synth-pop'.

Don't expect a "See You", "People are People". Actually, if you've been paying attention since SOFAD, DM haven't been trying to make synth-pop for a long time.

Discogs community - can we finally let go of this idea that Depeche Mode still makes synth-pop? Please? It's tiring. Bands and musicians change over time. If Kraftwerk abandoned synthesizers and hired an orchestra to play their next album, it wouldn't be electronic music, either.

Curious what synth-pop sounds like? Listen to early-DM, try on Yellow Magic Orchestra, or listen to something more recent, like Chvrches, La Roux, or last year's wonderful, inspired synth-pop album "Oh No" by Jessy Lanza.

The worst album of DM.
Their "spirit" seem to be gone for good.
