Yeap!
I still listen to it and I like it very much.
I still think it's their finest work since PTA and about a dozen times better than Exiter for sure.

Agreed.

I still listen to So Much Love, Cover Me and This Is The Last Time quite a bit.

I was reeeaaaallly hoping for a Going Backwards Radio Edit.

So Much Love I adored from first listen. Poorman, The Worst Crime and Fail I always skip, to my ears they're just dirges. You Move 'almost' has something, but needs more meaning in the verses, which peter out into nothing and spoil the song for me. Scum actually made me say "no way, really?" on first listen, but it's probably the one I listen to most now. I wouldn't have chosen Where's The Revolution for the first single, it's not anything like the best track, and was probably just for something to talk about in interviews? It's kind of listenable but I can't see it making it's way into any of my DM playlists. Both of Dave's tracks are good and definitely have earned their place on the album, though I prefer Cover Me to Poison Heart. Going Backwards (which will be the next single) has a lovely clean sound, and is best listened to on headphones.
Short answer - yep, still listening :-)



You essentially feel exactly the same as I do about Spirit! Down to every little detail.

I still listen to it yes . It's actually interesting that this time around it's allot harder to find any remixes that I would consider to sound better than the album version than it was for the Delta Machine tracks . A testament to the fact that James Ford is a much better producer than Hillier .

i just stopped listening to it this past week. at least having it on frequent rotation. which is good considering how quickly i stopped listening to both SOTU and Delta, they died pretty fast. the fact that Spirit lasted 3 months is a positive thing for me.

I'm still listening to the album. I like every track on it except 'The Worst Crime', I really don't like that song.
