Spiritualized - Ladies & Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space LP



“Since the 1997 release of Ladies and Gentlemen, Spiritualized have recorded three LPs, a handful of singles and EPs, and two double-disc sets called Complete Works. And the noise-gospel rock sprees that followed Ladies and Gentlemen cemented Spiritualized's reputation as one of rock'n'roll's best live spectacles… [Jason Pierce] also almost died, in 2005 of bilateral pneumonia, only to recover and finish a remarkable return to form-- Songs in A&E. Yet Pierce unequivocally reached the height of his recorded powers with Ladies and Gentlemen. Bolder than the term Britpop might suggest, more focused than the term psychedelic might imply, Ladies and Gentlemen is one of the great triumphs of the 70-plus-minute CD era. Alternately chaotic and meticulous, thundering and quivering, Ladies and Gentlemen finds power in conflict-- between restraint and excess, addiction and isolation, and ultimately, love and hate.” - Grayson Currin for Pitchfork
