Spirit space literally took you to a new world…it clearly showed that we have multiple lives and we are responsible for our own choices and how each lifetime teaches us to better ourselves, through positive thinking and connecting our lives with the universe. So when we move forward we learn from them in order to pass on to the next dimension. The film gave an excellent graphic representation of the theory and was backed by actual facts, which makes it very solid. I highly recommend it to anyone who's searching for answers to why we are on this planet.
Although only one of their previous albums (Essence, a French import) has been readily available in the United States, the Swedish folk instrumental trio Väsen actually released a total of four albums, including one recorded live on the radio, before this compilation was put together by NorthSide Records (a subsidiary of the Minneapolis indie label EastSide specializing in Scandinavian music). As such Spirit is a good survey of and introduction to the group's early work, when the group was still the trio of Olov Johansson on keyed fiddle, Mikael Marin on viola, and Roger Tallroth on guitar. The first four tracks are drawn from Essence and are well chosen, including the tender "Amanda" and the creepy "Pen-Knife Murderer." The next five are from Vilda and include the highly rhythmic "Roar-Resin," a schottische (2-step dance) by Roger Tallroth.
