Mr von Clinkenhoffer's excellently informative review is right on the money. Suffice to add that this is surely one of the greatest "hippy-era" albums ever released. The early Spirit albums are all very worthwhile, but this is the one which best defines what they're all about. "Twelve Dreams" embraces a breathtaking range of styles, but remains a totally coherent whole. A masterpiece of an album which succeeds in being pop, rock, heavy, folky, jazzy and psychedelic. Totally and utterly indispensable.
