It might have to do with the filter resonance in Spire. That's the one thing i dislike about it, when you turn up the resonance, it could sound more pleasing, and also get wilder. The filters are pretty great, except for this one thing. Sylenth1 not only gets more "self-resonating" when you turn up the resonance, it also sounds more pleasing.
Pretty much this ( I understand that you mean Sylenth filer sounding more pleasing and at the same time more "wild" with cranked up resonance) and also the filter drive. Spire badly needs a proper controllable filter drive/saturation
