Spirit

Released

Reflecting, in broad but clear terms, the broader sense of unease in the wake of various mid-2010 political decisions around the world, Spirit was both a new thematic shift for Depeche as well as a chance to take a new producer on board in the form of James Ford. “Going Backwards” made for a strong, pointed start to the album, both Dave Gahan and Martin Gore in excellent voice, while other songs like the Gahan-written ballad “Cover Me” and deeper cuts like “So Much Love” and “No More (This Is The Last Time)” found the band in good creative health.
