Spirit - Clear (1996) Retail CD
Prog-Rock/ Art Rock
Following on from their quirky, jazz influenced debut ("Spirit") and their more mainstream, rock orientated second album ("The Family That Plays Together"), Spirit's third album is a more extreme representation of the band's unique musical mix.
Caught between wanting to be an innovative jazz-rock band and a guitar-hero rock band, "Clear" suffers from noticeable schizophrenia as both sides of the group's character vie for space. This tension leads to some odd results (for example "New Dope In Town" whose over heavy rock verses surround a beautifully lilting jazz piano break that bears littlemore… relation to the rest of the song) and some real gems - "Ice" and "Clear" are marvellous, low key, jazz based instrumentals, "Dark-Eyed Woman" is truly excellent straight down the line hard rock and "Give A Life, Take A Life" is a superb slice of vocal harmony straight out of the Beach Boys "Surfs Up" drawer. In between the album moves, not always comfortably, between these diverse, sometimes conflicting styles.
Somehow it works... a record that frustrates and rewards in equal proportion, which sums up Spirit's music more effectively than the rest and which contains some of their very best tracks.
