2021 Charity Shop Purchases 13 - Spiritualized - Ladies and Gentelmen We Are Floating in Space
Confession time . Although I have heard of Spiritualized I only have the odd download here and there and have never given them a proper listen. I know that many of my blogging colleagues hold them in high esteem so I thought when I saw this, their 3rd studio album from 1997 on the Dedicated label, that I should bite the bullet and buy it for a pound to see what all the fuss was about
I was a wee bit apprehensive as first as I thought it just might be loops and squiggles and repetitive electronic bleeps. I was pleasantly surpried to find that I was wrong. There are tunes there, and pretty good tunes at that, albeit that is still the occassional blast of superfluous white noise here and there.
It is one that I envisage playing often to make up for lost time and will by keeping my eye out for others from them.
I await a slew of comments saying "I told you so", "about time to"and "where have you been for all these years"
