A more subdued album than the previous year's popular Windsong, Spirit is sprinkled with well-played country tunes ("Hitchhiker," "Baby, You Look Good to Me Tonight"), covers of old chestnuts ("Polka Dots and Moonbeams," "San Antonio Rose"), and contemplative ballads ("Like a Sad Song," "In the Grand Way"). While not an essential album for the casual fan, those exploring Denver's catalog more deeply will find much to like here. ~ Rob Caldwell
