Album Notes
“Memory-soaked lo-fi that peels out of the speaker like a ray of sunshine.” – The Deli

“Sometimes an album endears itself to you in such a personal way that you’re sort of embarrassed to play it for friends, in fear they might not get it. Dan Lurie’s Spirit of ‘98 is fast becoming one of those albums for me.” – Willamette Week

“The gentle and undemonstrative delivery of these simple melodies and lyrics leaves us lost in the space between meaning, searching with Lurie for the facts and events of the past.” – Leicester Bangs

“A sparse bedroom recording of songs influenced by his college days, Spirit is hardly an Animal House ode to partying down—although booze is plentiful, most obviously on "Carlo Rossi," his salute to wine that gushes from a jug—nor is it an introspective look at lessons learned from wise leather-elbow-patched professors amid the fallen leaves of a sprawling campus. Instead Spirit is a very pleasant recording of sweet nostalgia, handholding romances, and the fleeting nature of youth, all capped by the remorseful voice of Lurie.” – Portland Mercury
