I didn't get tix, though that doesn't always stop me from trying to meet a band for a quick autograph on the way in and out of an event. Still, was too busy to go sans tix.

It's nearly impossible to meet them unless you do now those paid meet and greets

I've heard, but I sure as hell would try.

^My reaction too. I will give it a third listen soon but to be honest it's not top of my to-do list now.

Initial reactions....It is rather mid paced and dreary


Live classic synth pop tracks you might have forgotten about.

I haven't listened yet... will do that later tonight. But I was just reading at my favorite cafe and a couple was across the table from me -- they live in NYC but are from Europe -- and I saw they were listening to "Spirit" on their phones. I struck up a conversation and they were RAVING about it, saying it was by far the best DM material in YEARS. So they certainly got me excited!

Oh wow, what a total let down by the Basildon Boys. I will not revisit Spirit again- Perhaps aptly named.

Not their best album, I hope this is a grower

Not a grower here. Where's The Revolution is the best track, by far!

Definitely a grower. Going backwards, scum, cover me, no more, all really good. Cover me is a beautiful track and I cannot get scum out of my head, "pull the trigger".

I've given spirit another listen and I'm afraid it just doesn't do it for me I've followed DM since 1984, and in all honesty I have seemed to lost a personal connection I had with the band I would have loved to had seen them on this tour but one date in London at ridiculous prices and recent albums being very mediocre the days of walking in my shoes,clean and things you said seem a very long time ago

My biggest problem with Spirit is the lack of memorable melodies and for the first time I feel they have lost it. It hurts me, because DM is one of my
fave bands.

I couldn't have said it any better. Melody is what it lacks

I just gave Spirit my first listen and with nice headphones.  I really like it.  In fact, I was really wowed by it.  There were moments in Cover Me that really swept me away, and I see it's not even a Martin song!  Peter Gordeno shares songwriting credits on that one and Poison Heart, and I gotta give him credit...  He's really been a solid contributor in Alan's absence and I've always been amazed by his talent on the keyboards/piano.

I'm over the fact (I guess!) that DM have changed and I think they really found a sweet spot with Spirit.  Certainly better overall than Delta Machine imo.  Scum is awesome and Eternal absolutely blew me away.
