In his 1999 review of the album Eric Atwell of the Daily Vault notes that "Spirit's tracks are distinct yet cohesive; classic in an album oriented sense, yet still sounding fresh enough to be contemporary".

Spirit was nominated for an American Music Award for Favorite Soul/R&B Album. The album cut Earth, Wind and Fire was also Grammy nominated for Best Instrumental Composition.
