Spirit in the Dark has the soul (and spirit) of the Aretha Franklin we all know and love. The Queen has made a strong return to her gospel roots, and therein lies the success of this album. Cut after cut is underlined by her rolling, gospel piano on solid fills and funky solos. Aretha’s piano work on The Thrill is Gone typifies her unique gospel way of interpreting blues material. She delivers her message tersely and, incredibly, maintains the musical tension and aura of desperation which haunt the tune. Aretha wrote five of the tunes on this album and all are strong compositions and excellent vehicles for her. The standouts, Pullin and Spirit in the Dark are masterpieces of composition and performance. Why Don’t Play That Song was chosen over either of them for the single release is beyond me. Only two tunes here have been hits previously (both by B. B. King).
