Combining Spirit and Delta Machine

Postby synthlove » Mon Mar 18, 2019 11:24 pm

Hey, I've been a collector/fan since 1986. I was thinking about their last two releases, Spirit and Delta Machine. Neither of these two albums are particularly enduring, but I wondered if you were to combine selected tracks from both albums, could you get a decent album?

If so, what tracks would you choose from each to make decent album?

Great question. I would keep it simple and keep 10 tracks only. It seems like their best albums are all 9-10 songs max anyway.

Off the top of my head I would do

1. Going Backwards
2. Should Be Higher
3. Scum
4. You Move
5. Cover Me
6. Eternal
7. So Much Love
8. The Child Inside (only to give Martin 2 solos)
9. Happens All the Time (promoted from B-side)
10. No More

12 tracks, mostly from DM which I reckon is the band's most unappreciated gem:

Angel
Secret to the End
Broken
Should Be Higher
Alone
Soothe My Soul
Goodbye
All That's Mine
Going Backwards
Scum
So Much Love
Fail

The only thing I learn from this is that no-one has the same taste. Here's my 'Delta Spirit':

going backwards
broken (live studio session version)
heaven
so much love
alone
should be higher
soft touch/raw nerve
poorman
always
cover me
soothe my soul

I don't know, but anyone who leaves "Cover Me" out of the mix must have a sick sense of humour. ;)
