  GrahamClayton: Spielmann was the author of the book "The Art of the Sacrifice in Chess", and he gives a personal example here with 18...♗xd5, ripping the position open so that he can build up overwhelming pressure against the White King stuck in the centre of the board.

The position after 21...♖bd8 is instructive:

The black rooks are in the centre of the board, providing pressure down the files, while the White rooks are still on their starting squares.
