LukeSpurs Less bombastic than the previous albums, this allows Sabrina's voice to shine better than ever Favorite track: Empty Bottle.

Henry Baker Perpetually blown away by Sweet Spirit, everything they do. Great live band, great albums, what more can I say.

wavyknife Llorando is such a solid track that ties so much together for this band in yet another killer album!

The inventory in the single here is brilliant. A little piano, mixed spanish/english lyrics (with a wink to mariachi!?), the funky bass and disco backing, steel guitar, synth... and even a motherfucking violin?

All this in a song about longing that makes you want to dance?! Just tears your heart out. Favorite track: Llorando.
