Great album - nice price (+ 9% quidco)

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN is Spiritualised's crowning acheivement, a masterpiece of '90s psychedelia that captures the mystery and invention of groups like Pink Floyd and Spirit while sounding thoroughly contemporary. The seeds were sown with Spacemen 3. After J Spaceman defected to form Spiritualised, those seeds were nurtured on the latter's first couple of albums. LADIES AND GENTLEMEN is the full blossoming of Spiritualised's lush, spacey vision.

Avid experimentalists from the beginning, the band takes the everything-but-the-kitchen-sink approach beyond its limits, with strings, horns, a gospel choir, steel guitar, and even Dr. John's piano added to the carefully constructed aural palace of harmony and dissonance. It's that balance of chaos and beauty that makes the songs so special, as unrelenting cavalcades of processed sound give way to ambient soundscapes. Perhaps most importantly, the band's songwriting is at a high point here, with subtle but unforgettable melodies attached to each song, no matter the extent of the sonic explorations.

any idea if this is the original pill box design with the CD in a blister pack?, or the boring normal kind?
#3
Great album; great price. Should be in everybody's collection.

I expect it's just the standard CD case as opposed to the special edition one.
#4
Terrific album, I might listen to it again in a minute. I expect this is the normal version. There was also a limited edition in which every track came on it's own CD in a medical style blister pack! I think it was about £120!

I managed to get that edition on fleabay last year for £35!! I soooo want to pop the CDs out but I'm not gonna seeing as I've already got the single blister version and a normal jewel cae one too. Fantastic album, fantastic band.

New album coming out this year too:thumbsup:

3 copies, you must like them!
I expect you've heard of Lupine Howl? Definately worth getting their 2 albums if you like Spiritualized. Spin-off The Flies album was one of my favourites of last year too:

I love this album, possibly my favourite of all time. After seeing the acoustic mainlines tour at St Marys church Nottingham I can't wait to see them touring full on blown electric again. They are an unbelievable experience live

I remember the last time I saw them live. I foolishly stood too near one of the massive speaker units. It was so loud I was actually out of breath when I left the building (and I wasn't dancing!) It was fantastic, but would probably be nothing if you didn't know the music, they're not exactly a catchy band.

You're right.. Floyd do sound like a dirge. This is ace though..
#14
Good album, but not as good as thier first two ( "Lazer Guided Melodies" & "Electric Mainline") IMO.
£2.99 is a great price though.
Anyone got the "Glow-In-The-Dark" white plastic case version of Electric Mainline ? I have and it's rather lovely (or was....the glow effect faded after a few years...bah...).
Very pleased to hear they've got a new album out this year. I assumed we'd heard the last of them.
