This pressing is infuriating. Mixing is great. But I have listened to three copies, and all of them have short bursts of non fill on side B in the left channel, in the same places. Tried with three very different cartridges and turntables, and the result is always the same. Didn't anyone listen to the test pressing with headphones before giving it an OK?
Rich Vulture
BTW, I also have the French red vinyl... and it sounds the same.
luisRED
Gorgeous pressing and a real audiophile experience. A brilliantly produced album and to my ears, this French pressing sounds even better than the standard EU black pressing. Worth grabbing whilst you still can if you love this album.
Gldasiy
WOW !! The prices are so high and not justified at the moment, there is plenty of this colored repress in FNACs for 24€, over 40€ is a big joke, though it's a beautiful collector !
Inabel
Zevulon, It’s your own problem if you are taking it in a wrong way, I am talking about what I know: my experience...I just don’t know how it works in other countries. It would have been smart from you to be more constructive in your comment instead of being a despising hater.
Oghmaghma
Not everybody lives in France, though. I know a lot of French people thinks that, but most people are just people, and do not live in FNAC territory.
Braned
Excellent pressing, clear sounding, beautiful red... It's on amazon but some sellers sold them via the black vinyl edition, It's there I found mine ... You must look at the comments.. On ebay they are nearly 100E already!! Excuse my english
Tygralbine
Anyone know where I can find this for sale? Not seeing in the usual places (Amazon/FR, label, etc.)
the monster
Very limited version only sold in FNAC store (France). not on the net...
Nejind
In stores Fnac....still 1 left today in Lyon bellecour store....you have to be quick
Aradwyn
Exclusively released via FNAC (French shops) - also Celine Dion, David Bowie, Scorpions, Seal etc. but not available now:https://www.fnac.com/SearchResult/ResultList.aspx?Search=vinyle+exclusivit%C3%A9+fnac&sft=1&sl
Uaha
The packaging of the compact discs is not good: the first time you pull out the discs out of their envelopes the surface will be marked with hairlines. So no item really can be kept in mint condition.
Paxondano
Not even opened mine yet! I.bought the deluxe cd, Polish box and German box.
Monn
Where the hell is the Blu Ray, already?? My collection is begging for it. This is the only Depeche Mode album with no 5.1....well, yet. This better get mixed into 5.1, or I'll be super pissed!
Rainbearer
Once again, due to the digibook packaging, both CDs are already scratched - even from new. These recent DM releases are terribly packaged, especially the regular digifile albums...
Sennnel
This seems really well done for an unofficial Russian bootleg release.
Auridora
Two disc 1s.....for f sake. No misprint either for collector value.
BlessСhild
You would think with the years of the 180g boom they would print large enough sleeves to accommodate the width. The LPs do not fit safely or securely in their package. The pressing also has unusually low out put.
Mitynarit
Superb pressing a bit of a return to pure electronics. 'Where's The Revolution' is Mode's strongest anthem in years and the political themes running through most of the tracks give the album a sense of purpose which was perhaps missing from the Hillier produced releases.
Knights from Bernin
I just bought a cd version that I can not find. It returns as the front of the depeche color mode on the gray background and its written depeche mode. Below them is written "welcome to the global spirit". On the back there is both Dave and Martin on Harley Davdson with Fletch standing behind Martin. It has the same playlist with a bonus trackWhich says "Funkhause Nalepastrasse, Berlin Germany, March 17, 2017" and then tracks No.13 Little soul.A strange design with black background and white contour restores the writing "drawn" 6 FESTIVAL. The cd inside shows a kind of "live concert" that is contained in another color wrap with DMs both forward and back. And then an inlay with photos of the concert and musicians. It does not have a barcode but a strange "EAT 175"I hope I was clear in the description .... could you help me? thank you
Frostdefender
In my opinion the best album from DM in years. Also drops the f word. First time if I'm not mistaken.
Hidden Winter
Sounds like an act of desperation if you ask me!
Buge
Manaus Industry Facilities should rethink for a moment what they are exactly doing.Comparing the Brazilian release to the UK and US releases, the Brazilian is trash.The printing is darker, bad hue, and it's just not acceptable if you pay attention to the details.The entire printing, from the disc label to the entire card sleeve is poor and of low quality.You may want to stay away from the Brazilian release for Spirit.Not that there are other fine releases in Brazil, there are. But everything Sony related to what's being manufactured in Manaus needs a serious auditing in quality control.My two cents.
Malanim
Go get this album immediately. Beautiful music by Depeche Mode in a gorgeous package. Sound quality is EXCELLENT. Not a single pop or crack throughout all the album. I am amazed.
Kelerius
Should we waste our time on the last DM's album if it was not DM ? Of course NOT.
Justie
I had to return it to the store two times because of a damaged vinyl.Having that sorted out it's a high quality pressing even if the album itself is not the best in DM discography.Make no mistake - it's not weak either ;)
Just_paw
Mine is slightly warped too but that doesn't affect the sound so I let it be. Disk 1 had a grey stain on it though. It was visible under a strong light and it also gave out a hissing sound when the stylus ran through it.Looked like a pressing issue.
Itiannta
In what way was the vinyl damaged? I returned my vinyl once, too because Disk 2 has been warped. The copy I got then had the same issue, so I kept it.
Domarivip
Excellent album, probably the best album since Ultra, well to me anyway. An amazing pressing, very quiet and detailed sound. ^^
Steep
Excellent sound quality and pressing from MPO. A lot better than the Ben Hilliar producee albums. Musically, nothing new but its very enjoyable.
Xcorn
I'm surprised not a lot of people have commented on the quality of this vinyl release. This is exactly what I want out of a record. Ive spent $30 for far less before. The gatefold cover is excellent but what I really like is the double inner sleeve. The main printed inner sleeve also contains a removable poly lining that is excellent if you store your records outside the cover so you don't risk ripping the gloss paper outer sleeves when removing them, you can just leave them housed in the cover. It feels like someone put some thought into trying to make a quality product. My vinyl is pressed well, quiet and center and it was static free right out of the box. The mastering quality is good. It's not mind blowing, but some of the sub sounds they use definitely make the speakers hit. The record sounds pretty darn good if you ask me tho. I'm a new Depeche Mode fan, have only really listened to Some Great Reward and Violator, both which I love so I decided to buy this new album. I really like it. I definitely wouldn't call it synth pop, it's definitely rock music with heavy electronic instrumentation. I think it sounds excellent. As far as pop oriented electronic music goes, Depeche Mode are the kings. Their music comes alive, is expansive and has an emotional dynamic I don't hear much in electronic oriented music. I enjoy it. It's worth a listen. ????????
avanger
I don't support counterfeits or unofficial releases, but the funniest thing about this one is that it included all the mixes from the Deluxe Edition second disc, in a single disc. Frankly, there was no real need for a second disc for the Deluxe Version as far as the official copies are concerned!
Obong
The second disc is needed to divide the album from the remixes
Fenrikree
My US release is definitely not pressed at MPO. Deadwax not even close.
Mayno
Interesting effort with the same mistakes that may have come from management or producer, as it happened with previous 5 albums. An album that will split the fan base - half will love it, half will hate it. There will be no consensus. It's a love-and-hate relationship album. Less melodic than anything I ever heard from Depeche Mode. The savers here are tracks 1, 2, 4, 8 and 11. The Jungle Spirit Mixes are enjoyable, but the lack of creativity didn't place any new golden song into the bonus disc. The real relief in this album is that it has a different approach than producer Ben Hillier used, the guy who produced the past 3 Depeche Mode records. Here you get loads of cymbals, real acoustic drums, electric bass, less analog synths and more guitars. This is quite a relief. But in my opinion, not yet even close to Violator – and yes, you will hate me for saying that.
Leyl
My version is from poland.The same box as the german realese,whit the exclusive band-Pin.Glad to have it.
Manris
Best DM album in ages!! Edge and depth. Anger suits y'all well;)
Prinna
Thank you Depeche Mode. Been waiting a while for top shelf material. Number 5 pushes it there.
Silver Globol
Dude it's all about #5! I agree definitely the standout
Ffyan
So much better than the last three albums. Depeche Mode haven't said their last word yet!
Meztisho
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
Shakataxe
A so beautiful album better than Delta MachineI 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
Shazel
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.
Malhala
This album sounds... overmature ))
Hellmaster
The Jungle Spirit Mixes (from deluxe CD) really needs their own 12" single release. Better than the whole album!
Freaky Hook
the jungle mixes should be on the 4th side !!! instead of a fucking etching...
Bladecliff
definitely feel the same, remixes are better than originals, i would like to know who made them
Kerry
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.
Lesesshe
I agree with your point on the last 3 or so albums. They seem to Let Me Down, again and again. Some ok songs, but nothing that drew you to the albums as a whole. The first time I heard Spirit, I thought it was ok, then I sat down in my living room and listened to the entire lp on my thumping system. I also had the lyrics to read through. The album grabbed me and I felt like I did when I listened to SGR, or MFTM. There are subtle hints of old on this release. Give it a thorough listen on your home system and see if it doesn't pull you in, especially 4, 5 and 6. You have to dig in a bit!Also, their music has matured, like Sting, Peter Gabriel, etc...had. You're not going to hear multi-layered synthesized pop songs from them anymore. As many have stated: you either like it, or you don't.
Meri
you absolutely made a point that DM have abandoned their synth-pop music trademark. It's absolutely understandable for a band making music for so many years to develop new ideas and change their musical style. On the other hand, though being a fan for 20 years, I lost touch with the change being made over the last few records. When I started listening to DM, just with the release of ULTRA, I was deeply moved by their tone and musical style. I started to acquire the whole discography of the band, liking their 80ies sound very much. They tried to become a rock band with SOFAD but in my opinion their sound was still unmistakable. ULTRA reduced the rock influences mixing electronic pop with guitars. Though some fans found ULTRA mediocre - actually there are some weaker songs on it - it was a record with a distinct DM sound. Tom me, Exciter was an absolute letdown, Playing the Angel and Sounds of the Universe had their moments (Suffer Well, Fragile Tension). I found absolutely no connection to Delta Machine. Spirit seems to go the same way abandoning rhythmic drums and synthesizer sounds. As I said before, I accept the bands wish to change their musical horizon but I'm less than enthusiastic about it. Seems like DM is finally leaving my musical horizon. Sad but no catastrophe as all the classics still shine!

The worst album of DM.Their "spirit" seem to be gone for good.
Wilalmaine
Yes, yet another hollow stadium Guns and Posers album from the guys, third one in a row.Where's the Evolution?
Lightseeker
You love it or you hate it. In my case i love it! Amazing album. The best since Ultra.
nadness
Too early to call, but my initial impressions are not favourable. I've been listening to the much maligned Sounds of the universe and Delta machine albums a great deal recently; Have come to the the conclusion SOTU is a very fine album for the most part and Delta machine is probably in my top 3 DM albums. Ben Hillier, the producer of both of those records and the previous Playing the angel (they've become my go to DM albums of late), came in for a lot of criticism, but I think that with time, opinions will start to change and that he'll receive the praise he deserves. The fact that the band stuck with him for 3 albums surely suggests that they rated him highly. As I say, I'm not prepared to nail my colours to the mast just yet, but James Ford's production on spirit strikes me as being strangely underwhelming; or is it the quality of the songs themselves that are below par? Personally, I'd like the band to take a chance with their next producer, that is, if Martin Gore is unwilling, or feels unable to produce DM himself. Johnny Greenwood, if they could get him might be interesting. Likewise, Scott Walker or John Cale. 2 people I suspect (possibly totally incorrectly) have never taken any interest in Depeche Mode.
Ndav
Agreed, for me its an 4 track e.p.Im wait for the next album ????.
Cobandis
This seems to be the common denominator towards this album: either you love it or hate it! Seen it in many reviews and opinions everywhere.
Gaudiker
I actually think it's their most focused album in a long while!
Braendo
INCREDIBLE pressing. No mistakes whatsoever. Sounds absolutely magnificent. And the music is excellent, their best album since Playing The Angel.
Waiso
Disc 2 is warped. Apart from that a good sounding pressing but away from "INCREDIBLE".
Unde
I agree 100%. The pressing is perfect. Pure vinyl pleasure!
Flower
they are touring in N america to promote this LP I guess
betelgeuze
they are doing 3 dates at the Hollywood bowl yes
Kieel
When is this album going to released on CD in the USA?
Preve
Agreed, Friday is now release day (of the week) universally and March 17th is the album release. Most pre-orders are out - my 2xLP already arrived via Amazon here in Canada.
