That said, I could never get much into Recoil.

Martin is a great songwriter, though. As long as he can compose, there's life in the band, but yeah, it's not what it was. Like U2, they really have fallen back on being a major touring band vs. producing the same level of material. I hope I'm wrong whenever there's talk of a new album.

I always think the will go back to all electronics but those hopes are always dashed. The succeeded in being the all rock band with minimal synths thrown in there.

For Sounds of the Universe Martin got out a lot of the old synths.  And of course with VCMG and MG he's been toying with them (old and new) a lot more.

But yes, once Alan left they went downhill (except for Ultra which is incredible once you get past Barrel of a Gun) and we'll never get another Violator again.  They are not what they once were... but I'm happy Martin is still writing songs.

What would really make me happy is another VCMG - my two idols working TOGETHER, face to face like early Lennon/McCartney, making songs with some melodies and vocals (a true album) rather just emailing each other parts of songs with little or no chemistry or emotion.

I was hoping that Martin and Vince would continue VCMG. Was not to fond of second collaboration woth Orbital.

I have to admit I think Delta Machine is probably their worst (Broken and Soft Touch/Raw Nerve are probably the worst songs they've ever released), though it does have a few good tracks on it.  Overall, it's just missing the magic that every other DM album seems to have.  So, I'll be going into Spirit with some skepticism but still optimistic.  Though I know we won't see a return to Construction Time Again sound (ha!) I think they did great with Sounds of the Universe and hope to hear more in that vein.

Considering they've worked with a new producer for the first time in ages, I'm looking forward to hearing and exploring the new sounds and arrangements, etc...

Not so sure about the cover artwork though I have to admit. With a title like "Spirit" they could have done so much more but five pairs of boots and six flags on a grey background? Hmm.. anyway, the music counts I guess!

Completely agree.  Wsa so glad to hear they selected a different producer who is in Simian Mobile Disco.  Expect it to be more synthy.  Hoping for a return to form, but have a feeling we will be let down again.  Their last really good album was Ultra in my opinion.

I go back to the Alan Wilder effect, his loss in DM has made them a group I dont like too much now. Trying to be a dark rock act for years now and less of the great synths sound. Even Flecher is unintersting.
