10/10 Boom Customer review, 8th August 2014

The worst Spacemen 3 album? No way.

To deal with the obvious point first: yes, the key criticism that was made at the time and that has been made ever since is essentially true. This isn't a Spacemen 3 album except in name, it's two separate albums by two separate musicians who had already gone their separate ways.

To which I've always thought: so what? Without getting too Barthesian about this, a band is just a name and an album is what you make of it. It doesn't really matter that Sonic wrote 'Big City'. It does matter that it's a great song. It doesn't matter that Jason wrote 'Billy Whizz'. It does matter that it's a great song. And so on.

As an album I've loved for a very long time now it's a straight 10/10 for me on this one.


7/10 Joel Customer review, 3rd August 2014

Okay, is this the worst Spacemen 3 album? Probably. Is it still worth hearing? I'd say so. The album is divided between two clear sides: first half of the album is handled by Sonic Boom while the latter half is done by J Spaceman of Spiritualized fame.

First half has some cool stuff but ends up kinda dragging towards the end, but have no fear, J Spaceman hurtles to the rescue with a bunch of excellent tracks on side B.

For fans of Spiritualized, Ghosts, Space and Pavement's Space Ghost theme.
