It's a bit heartwrenching to listen to Spirit Touches Ground, for this strong singer/songwriter-based rock album is a masterpiece whose maturity and breadth speak to Clayton-Felt's future as a solo musician. But Clayton-Felt, the founder of School of Fish (known for the hit "Three Strange Days"), passed away two years ago at the age of 32 from a rare form of cancer before these songs reached the public. In a pure labor of love, his family and friends stepped in to ultimately get Spirit Touches Ground released. The posthumous project touches on everything from the beauty of love ("Building Atlantis") to the general hardships of life ("Backwards World") with ease and grace.—JP
