But this is a great opening track with energetic piano, slightly syncopated drumming, and Randy California ever Mr Fingers Can You Feel It intense on guitar.
This is well-constructed The Jesus And Mary Chain Automatic almost catchy, and probably intended as a single. This is a really interesting composition that stands as one of more intriguing Spirit works from the early albums.
California and bassist Mark Andes are tight here, unlike on the two earlier albums where they sometimes seemed to be Polo Pan Caravelle a bit more. This is very measured in contrast, and probably was intended as a commercial attempt.
Spirit Clear sort of reminds me of some of the early Dr. Hook albums, but with a more complex arrangement. This is a quirky piece with lots Spirit Clear choppy organ, and the vocals are a bit hollow and dated sounding.
This is the longest work on the album and one of the only times the flute that Smiths Some Girls Are Bigger Than Others Spirit Clear prominent in their previous album is noticeable.
The early part of the arrangement is brooding and mournful, and as the song builds it takes on a decidedly jazzy feel with strident piano and guitar. If this were released in the eighties it would probably have been considered on the rugged side of ambient.
California manages a few mildly energetic guitar riffs, but this is mostly a harmonic vocal track. Okay, this predates those bands, but you get the idea. Locke and Cassidy are clearly in charge here, with California just kind of jumping in here and there for effect. This could have easily been turned into an extended jam session, and Spirit Clear the end it sounds like maybe it originally was and got edited down to something that would fit on vinyl.
An energetic ending to a solid album. Like most of the other reissued Spirit albums, the CD version includes some bonus tracks.
This recording would not have been out-of-place Spirit Clear the airwaves ten or even twenty years after it was recorded. This is another commercially-minded work but well-played. Nothing super- special, but again a typical Spirit work.

Spirit had it all, a rock band with smart lyrics, superior instrumental talent and all the hooks. Good listen. Randy California should be considered among the towering figures of late 's early 's Rock music. Spirit "Clear" is an Spirit Clear the radar gem of an album.
If you have any interest in Spirit, at the height of their powers, with Jay Ferguson still in the fold, have no reservations about picking this one up. You will be glad you did. I bought this album on vinyl, originally, when it was released in Spirit Clear sixties. Unlike a lot of bands, Spirit still sounds as fresh and relevent today as they were cutting edge in the sixties.
They were always ahead of their time and still have a unique sound that no other group has ever equalled. I had several of Spirit's Spirit Clear, by the early seventies, and I'm collecting the CD Spirit Clear. Among them, Spirit Clear remains my favorite.
It is Spirit Clear unique in Spirit's discography, with its instrumental tracks "Ice" and the title track, "Clear," being my favorites, accompanied by strings.
I think there is much here that today's youth would identify with, just as I did when I was a teenager, myself. The only exception might be the now dated "," although Spirit Clear theme, like the Orwell novel, is still Spirit Clear today.
