Album Review

Released to celebrate their 25th Anniversary, Spirituality 1983-2008: The Consummate Compendium is a hits package from Canadian Celtic folk-rock five-piece Spirit of the West. Ignoring their self-titled debut, the two-CD, 32-track collection gathers material from 1986's Tripping Up the Stairs ("The Crawl") and subsequent studio albums right up to 2004's Star Trails ("Waiting for Martin"). Alongside breakthrough single "Political," "And If Venice Is Sinking" (their biggest success), and frosh week and wedding favorite "Home for a Rest," there are two new songs, "Another Happy New Year" and "Winter's Now the Enemy," a previously unreleased demo of Open Heart Symphony album track "Kiss and Tell," and their cover of Donovan's "Sunshine Superman," previously only available on his tribute album, Island of Circles. ~ Jon O'Brien, Rovi

Customer Reviews

A Great Compendium from a Favourite Band

I've been a SotW fan for many years. I'm loving this "compendium". If you enjoy Celtic-influenced bands like Newfoundland's Great Big Sea, you'll love the harder-edged sounds of Spirit of the West from Canada's left coast. I'm very pleased with this purchase. (At a great price, no less.)

All rise for the Canadian National Anthem - Home for a Rest

25 years later and this is still the best Canadian band out there. Love the new songs!!!

25 years and still amazing!

Still writing great songs after 25 years! Another Happy New Year is going to be a huge hit for sure!
