Editorial Reviews

It's time for an update of our image of Jewel, the ingenue who set the music world on fire with her 1995 debut album, Pieces of You. After all, that effort consisted primarily of songs Jewel had written several years before, some of them dating back to her days as a free- spirited waif living in a van on the beach in San Diego. Now, at 25, she's become a sort of guru for self-expression and full disclosure, revealing perhaps too much of herself in see-through dresses worn to awards shows and a critically drubbed (yet bestselling) book of poetry. Spirit makes plain why Jewel's well-intentioned yet sometimes facile lyrics strike a chord with her audience while her poetry lies flat on the page. On songs like "Deep Water," "Hands," and "Down So Long," her words are borne aloft by sparkling melodies and her soaring voice, making even the most cynical observer take a schoolgirl-notebook image such as "your heart like grape gum on the ground" or an unreassuring platitude like "If I could tell the world just one thing / It would be that we're all OK" somewhat in stride. On Pieces of You, Jewel posed the musical question "Who will save your soul?" On Spirit, it sounds like she wants to do it herself. And the truth is, if you don't overanalyze it, the album does act as a sort of balm for wounded psyches or maybe a primer for raising your own inner child. Maybe she's right and we are all OK. Who knew? --Daniel Durchholz

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring September 21, 2005
By Jamie
Format:Audio CD
While many critics have labelled Jewel's lyrics childish, it is important to understand that if the only faith in this world comes from children, then cynicists and critics should suck it up, and realize what Jewel is offering.

Deep Water: Essentially, one line in this song sums up the album, "It's nothing without love." We can go through our lives doing the day-to-day things we must, but we need to realize that our lives mean nothing without love for eachother, and for ourselves.

What's Simple is True: This is a beautiful love song. It brings it all down to the fact that, essentially, the simplistic things are what really matter. She loves him, and that's all that matters. She paints beautiful pictures here. I love it.

Hands: I love this song because of the message behind it. While taking her lyrics out of their context and just staring at them, they're not so profound, "My hands are small, I know, but they're not yours, they are my own." However, putting them back in, and hearing the song as a whole, you see that what's important is that it's important for each of us individually to surround ourselves faith (for light does the darkness most fear), and to rise above circumstance.

Kiss the Flame: Jewel describes what she wants in a lover. She tells us that she wants those who "whiddle love down at the knees" to be separated from those us of who have faith. She believes we should be a part of those who are "untamed", living by their own internal standards. (A concept echoed in a song by Alanis Morissette called So-Called Chaos)

Down So Long: I've loved this song forever. I love the storytelling in it. I love the reference to the Sun as a feminine force. (And that Sun act like she don't even care.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jewel's Best December 3, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Of the four albums that Jewel has released to date, this is definitely the most amazing in my book. It's deep and thought-provoking lyrics are what make it the gem it is, along with her angelic voice and the beautiful music. The album as a whole works perfectly and there is literally no low point at all.
Among the many amazing tracks, the ones to really look for are "Deep Water," "What's Simple Is True," and "Barcelona." They will have you floating into another world that is full of peace, thoughtfulness and grace. "Hands," the notorious single from the album, is also a very magnificent song. "Down So Long" was a single as well, but it did not to as well as the first - nor did the third, "Jupiter (Swallow The Moon)." This song's Single Version is a lot better than the original, in my opinion, so you might also want to think about either downloading that or buying the Jupiter Single, which also has an amazingly beautiful acoustic version of "Deep Water."
"Innocence Maintained" has MAINTAINED it's position as one of my top three Jewel songs of all time. If you're looking for a song to download, this would be it. It's a great take on what the world is like today, and how it is full of hate and has lost it's innocence. "We've made houses for hatred, it's time we made a place where people's souls may be seen and made safe."
There are really no huge dissapointments or low points of the album, but i'm not saying that every song will be easy to get into. The song that took me a while to love was "Enter From the East." At first it sounded a little to monotone, but I realized later on that the beauty of it is it's slow, steady pace which is very beautiful actually.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spirit is the best Jewel album ever March 13, 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I wish Jewel would have kept on making this same kind of music. Although 'Pieces of you' was a terrific album, this follow up album 'Spirit' is just amazing. This is a cd that you can listen to the entire way through without skipping one song. It is beautiful poetry that is injected with an angelic voice. Jewel's songwriting shines through on every song on this album. Full of songs of a love she wishes to have, to keeping positive and keeping faith, to trying to be the best person you can be, this album will make you feel full of emotion. Her guitar playing is something else, I never knew a guitar could sound like she makes it sound. I was 16 when I had this album and it made me feel so positive, happy and full of love. I've recently purchased it again and I feel exactly the same way. Good for teenagers, good for adults, this has to be one of my favorite albums of all time.

3.0 out of 5 stars Our Little Jewel Has Grown Up August 22, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Since I am very picky about what I hear, when I purchased Jewel's first album, "Pieces of You", I was a little bit disappointed. I enjoyed a few of her songs, but I couldn't stomach such an airy voice for too long. Still, hearing good things about "Spirit", I wasn't as disappointed when I received it (by the same person, no less). I found this album to carry a much more mature and (dare I be redundant) spiritual. Her songs had more texture, more depth, and more meaning, it seemed. Especially such tracks as "Do You" and "Abscence of Fear". She doesn't sound like a different person, mind you, but it is obvious that she has grown up, since her songs seem to be more about fullfilling her own self, as opposed to fullfilling what others want to hear. The substance of her latest music reminds me of Sarah McLauglan, in that her songs and lyrics are quite intimate. Yes, I was very pleasantly surprised.
P.S. Anyone who uses the word "Awesomeriffic" or makes references to the popular teenie-bopper show, "Dawson's Creek", deserves zero credibility. However, I resent the fact that people generalize Jewel fans to insecure teenage girls who can do nothing better than follow someone they consider a "talentless pretty face". Though many of her ideas are infantile and simple, I do believe that many of Jewel's critics are closed-minded and very unintelligent, for many of her songs require thought, and often have double meanings. (Mind you, this does not come from some airheaded teenie-bopping child, but from an intelligent, thoughtful adult. Stop generalizing and criticizing, and start doing something productive with your lives!)
