5.0 out of 5 stars It's not just a modern album it's a modern opera September 16, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Definitely a love 'em or hate 'em band, Spiritualized transcends modern music in this epic opera of lost love, addiction as a means of forgetting and finally acceptance and redemption. Jason Pierce (a.k.a. J. Spaceman) writes and produces each individual note on the entire album, which is no small feat given the vast array of sound and style. His music is melodic and complex without being too pretentious, but it's his brilliant lyrics that truly set him apart from a thick ocean of artists like Radiohead and Verve. So turn off the lights, put on some headphones and get comfortable. It opens up with the airy title track that bleeds into an injection of adrenaline and bounces back and forth between moments of primal rage, lust and loss. "I Think I'm in Love" starts with a dreamy swirl of sound taking the listener through a heroin injection before seemlessly switching into a quicker paced series of contradictory dialogue - "I think I'm in love...maybe you're just lonely" truly one of the highlights of the album. For anyone who's ever truly been in love and abruptly dumped this album speaks like a support group. If you've ever drank to forget it almost sounds like words you wish you'd written first, "sometimes I have my breakfast right off of a mirror - or sometimes I'll have it right out of a bottle" - Home of the Brave. The real highlight of the album though is in it's emotional abyss, "Broken Heart" - a song so desperately honest it hurts to listen to. He doesn't try to get clever or academically poetic with the lyrics - it's too emotional for that he just hits you with the straight shot "Lord, I have a broken heart...and I'm cryin' all the time." the lyrics are accompanied by a sweeping set of strings that seem to lull you to the brink of tired as you become emotionally spent.

4.0 out of 5 stars Exhilarating March 31, 2000
Format:Audio CD
It's been quite some time since a band has challenged me the way Spiritualized has. When I first heard them, live at a recent Radiohead concert, I must confess I was less than impressed. I couldn't understand what all the hype was about (they're on almost every critic's Top Ten list). They had no stage presence and their loosely structured songs were hard to get into in a live setting.
Yet, something drew me back to them and I found myself purchasing this CD. I'm glad I did. The packaging of the CD implies prescription medication and I guess "Ladies and Gentleman We Are Floating in Space" is a bit like medicine -- bitter and hard to swallow at first, but sure makes you feel good after the initial dosage.
The band and the music are hard to describe. I guess Spiritualized is what you'd get if you threw Radiohead, The Beatles and Sonic Youth in to a blender. They've got a sort of techno, ambient vibe, but the guitars screech and wail, the lyrics ramble on and at times it sounds more like they're smashing their instruments than playing them. They definitely pack a sonic wallop and their seemingly meandering songs come together at the end each and every time leaving you more satisfied with each listen. I think they're one of the truly unique and fresh bands out there and I recommend this album highly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Breathtaking June 23, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
There is a reason Spiritualized "Ladies and Gentleman We Are Floating In Space" beat out Radiohead's "OK Computer", the Verve's "Urban Hymns, and Primal Scream's "Vanishing Point" for NME's Album of the Year. It is a phenomenal journey of music, and like most outstanding works, it isn't completely accessible at the outset. I too thought it was overrated during my first ten listens, and put it away for six months. Then I pulled it out again, and it just lodged itself in my head for a good month straight. The sheer sonic brilliance of this album is what one should pay attention to. There are no real hooks or catchy melodies, but rather hypnotic guitar lines, bursts of carefully constructed white noise, and Jason Pierce's voice is simply one of the most emotional, soulful sounds in music this decade. This album really is like floating around in space.
My favorite bands are Oasis, Blur, REM, Wilco, that kind of stuff. The fact that I appreciate this music should tell you that it is not completely inaccessable to pop music fans. This is not pop music. It is is more demanding, and often more fulfilling. Only serious listeners and people in touch with the sadness and adventure in your soul need apply.

4.0 out of 5 stars let's put all these reviews into perspective... July 2, 1999
Format:Audio CD
OK--this album has received lots of reviews. 39 at the time of me having written this one. I'm very surprised to see so many. Some are claiming this a masterpiece, & others think it's horrid. I love Spiritualized, however, I am beginning to understand more & more all the negative reviews, being that I feel just that way about "Live At The Albert Hall" (see my review for that it you like). This album DID receive some major hype--seemingly the most of their 3 albums, & that's a shame, because they were, seriously, flawless on the 1st 2 albums, Lazer Guided Melodies, & Pure Phase respectively. Their pretentiousness was erased, because Jason was so brilliant in the execution of the tracks--& the overall sound was warm & wonderful. On this album, the sound is definitely more harsh & rugged overall. He seems to feel as though he can do no wrong. The opening track, the title song illustrates this. It's way overblown with tons of vocal parts going simultaneouly, & it's also a blatant adaptation of Pachelbel's "Canon in D" which I've never seen mentioned, but it's undeniable. These massive overdubs work much better on the hard rockers, like the excellent "Come Together"--it has a great beat, & the horns & choir are masterfully & effectively integrated--it's densely layered without sounding excessive--the sound is organic & natural, which is how Jason is at his best, & it's a very potent song. "Cop Shoot Cop...", with Dr. John on piano, gets stretched out to over 16 minutes via an extended noise-making session, but the first 7 minutes worth are extremely powerful (with Jason CLEARLY 'borrowing' from Flash And The Pan's "California").
