Since the 1st track Big City, everybody I know falls in love with this album even those who have never heard Spacemen 3 before' to my favorite Hypnotized, this album gives you every member of this cult favorite band at their best. Almost 3 albums in one. I've bought it on every format. Starting with the cassette on its initial release to every single release of the album to LP to cd .This album deserves a lush rerelease on vinyl because it is hard to find this much love treasure of an album for under $100 . It makes all the sense in the world because I have not yet found one single person who , upon a first listen,has heard the album and not loved it.

I have fond memories of listening to this album and wanting nothing in life. Nothing at all. Sonic Boom's half of this album (that is, the first half of the record) is sheer euphoria, well within my grasp (or perhaps just beyond it).

"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.

This, Spacemen 3's 4th & final album, is basically a Spacemen 3 album only in name. All of Sonic's tracks are bunched together, followed by Jason's bunch. Jason's songs are more promising than anything else, however, the blueprint that he has here is what he totally perfected on Spiritualized's "Lazer Guided Melodies" album shortly after. Sonic's songs however are all sensational. Containing the upbeat "Big City", "Why Couldn't I See", "I Love You", "Just To See You Smile", & "Set Me Free/ I Got The Key", you simply couldn't ask for a better album from Sonic. His songs are incredibly fun, blissful, & lovely. Some of the lyrics, like "Oh honey, oh you look so sweet/ oh baby, oh you look so neat" from "Set Me Free/ I Got The Key" may seem unbearably cheesy, however, the way he wisely combines these lines with an adorable ringing 12-string acoustic guitar melody illustrates how he knows exactly what he is doing. The effect it totally gleeful & transcendant. "Why Couldn't I See" has some great beautifully sad lyrics like, "You made me feel that I was just what you needed/ Then you turned 'round & said, "Why don't we leave it/ Why couldn't I see". The album is a triumph for Sonic. Try to get the U.K. version of this CD, since it contains about 24 more minutes of material. However, don't think you should pass on the 11 track U.S. release if you should see it, containing it has all the tracks mentioned ("Big City" from the U.S. release is featured as "Big City (Everybody I Know Can Be Found Here" on the U.K. version, & it's nearly 11 minutes long, compared to the 5 minute edit on the U.S.Read more ›

This is one of my favorite CDs not only from Spacemen 3 but of all time. It is one of those releases that you never get tired of hearing and one which you can put on to get away from the world for a while and just get lost in all the great music it contains. The first half is all Peter and the second half Jason apparently. Separated by a cover of a Mudhoney song, the only song both Spacemen actually play on together. However, both halves seem to mesh perfectly into a whole and it just flows from beginning to end. The music on here touches dance, trance, rock and dreamy pop with equally brilliant results and contains one of the saddest yet most beautiful songs I've ever heard (Drive-Feel so Sad). It is my favorite Spacemen 3 album for all of the above reasons. If you are a true lover of alternative music or just plain good music you'll want to add this to your collection.

I feel like this and Sonic Booms first couple of solo albums are where he reached his full artistic potential. The production and sound quality on the first side of this album is nothing short of astonishing. This album has more synth than I can recall on their earlier albums, and it may be the very reason I'd say this is my favorite Spacemen 3 album. I feel like the sound of the synthesizer on this album illustrates the Spaceman 3 ethos of repetition, sound experimentation and trying to illustrate bliss through music. The opening track, though mostly lifted from the Electric Prunes is a lush wall of sound. The other Sonic songs feature his best sounding guitar playing, with a much fuller production than the earlier albums.

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.
