"Recurring" steers the ship of Spacemen 3 sound to further uncharted territory, which speaks even greater volumes about their talent. It hardly resembles the three full lengths that preceded it, or the works of Pierce and Kember to follow. It's pop stretched to it's limitation, with far less influence from blues and rock as previously seen from the group.
Sonic Boom's work (the first half of the album) dominates this record and could stand on its own merits, but Recurring is a treasure from beginning to end. For my money it happens to be the peak of Sonic's brilliance, with Jason Pierce coming into his own over the course of the next decade.
Jason's side is quite disappointing imo. Understandable given that he and sonic were not on speaking terms, he may have had his eye on the door and saving his better material for Spiritualized. He did though contribute one of my top 5 Spacemen 3 songs on this album, his song Hypnotized is worth the price of this album alone.
My go to tracks on this album are all of Sonic's songs and Hypnotized by Pierce. Probably the best album in their catalog. I highly recommend this one. I took off one star for Jason's lack luster half of the album.
