"In a time of sociopolitical upheaval, Depeche Mode emerged with Spirit.
Dark, brooding, and painfully relevant upon its release, the collection is one
of their most intense and aggressive statements, isolating the frustration,
anger, tension, and dread coursing across the globe in the wake of the 2016 U.S.
presidential election and Brexit. With little subtlety, Depeche Mode take aim
and leave few survivors...On 'Going Backwards,' [Dave Gahan] fears a regression
'to a caveman mentality.' When Martin Gore joins him, they come to a dire
conclusion: 'We feel nothing inside/Because there's nothing inside.' If the
perpetually gloomy pair think affairs are this bad, perhaps there really is no
hope. Despite such desperation, the band doesn't allow for much time to be
paralyzed by fear and complacency. Like parents telling their children they're
'so disappointed' in them in the hopes of sparking a little reverse-psychology
motivation, Spirit is Depeche Mode's challenge for us to prove them wrong...The
sexy 'You Move,' written with Gore, is a club-ready standout that pulses from
the darkest corners found on Ultra and Gahan's Hourglass, while the carnal
'Poison Heart' is another Soulsavers-esque affair, as sleazy and spiritual as he
gets. Robust and fearless, Spirit may end up being one of the earliest and best
salvos of its political era. Despite dour lyrics to the contrary, Depeche Mode
haven't given up on humanity. Spirit exhumes the remains of our better nature
and demands its resurrection." - Neil Z. Yeung, allmusic.com
