3 stars A Spiritual Greeting is White Witch's second and unfortunately last album. This album is even more diverse in genre than their debut.

We'll All Ride High (Money Bags) is pretty much a cross between Aerosmith and the quirkiness of White Witch.

Slick Witch is a pure southern rock/boogie number with glam rock thrown into the mix. An interesting but successful crossover. Very catchy, it'll have you singing it for the next month or so! I love it!

Walk On is another one of those songs that only White Witch could do so perfectly. Amazing vocal harmonies, non of the musicians are amateurs on this. Wonderful use of keyboards with an extremely memorable guitar solo.

Class of 2000 is definitely White Witch's most recognized works. Great guitar work by Buddy Richardson, this is definitely one of the more progressive songs from this album. Ronn Goedert's vocals are especially superb on this song.

Showdown is an organ led song. Along with Slick Witch, you'll be singing this song for months to come!

Crystallize and Realize is a short proggy synthesizer and acoustic guitar led song. Its so beautiful that one would have to hear it in order to understand, no good way to describe it. Just amazing.

Black Widow Lover always seemed out of place after the previous song and before the next. Its a nice pop song with some southern rock and glam rock thrown in. Along, of course, by the excellent musicianship of White Witch.

Aunti Christy/Harlow is White Witch's best recordings. Pure heavy prog heaven! With a guitar riff and Ronn Goedert's best vocal piece ever, this is one song that really determines whether you buy this album or not. Amazing guitar solos and nice keyboarding is all one could ask for, and you get it.

Now with all of that said I have to say that this is not a very progressive album. I'm giving it 3 stars for 3 of White Witch's best progressive wrks: Class of 2000, Crystallize and Realize, and Aunti Christy/Harlow would fit perfectly on their debut album.

Both of White Witch's albums are not only suberb in their own respects, but they really stand the test of time. 3 Stars
