- Lazer Guided Melodies by Spiritualized
8/10 Mr Pearls Brain Customer review, 9th May 2017
My understanding is that J Pierce was still looking for the Spiritualized sound when this was released. Ultimately that sound was located somewhere a bit closer to good ol' rock 'n' roll. As far as I'm concerned, they went off after this one.
It's probably riddled with references I haven't noticed but I'll stick my neck out and say that few if any of the songs on this are about drugs, and I think that's a plus point. There are better things to sing about, like getting lost in 200 bars (a most splendid musical pun). Personal favourite: If I Were With Her Now, which is built on one of those simple chord progressions that sounds like the very music of the spheres. The sort of beauty in a pop song that makes you stop what you're doing and go "yeeeeaaaaahhhhh". Every time.
