spirtualized / E.A.R

...takin' drugs to make music to take drugs to...certainly a charge that can be laid at th' spiritualized door'n they'd be glad o' th'compliment...if ever a modern day collective knew how to connect up th'sounds o' th' byrds/velvets/country-soul/gospel/spacedout krautrock/chamber pop'n have it come out in a singular fashion then its these cats (or rather jason spaceman for in a lotta ways its his vision after leavin' spacemen3)...this first outtin' from th'early nineties shows all th'elements that would crop up in later waxin's, its a kinda run through for what would become th'sound as a whole concept...concept bein' th' operative word cos this disk is divided into four suites just like college prog from two decades previous...excellent lobe loobin' for those heavily green afternoons when stationery travellin' is a must...' perfect accompaniment for when travellin' spaceways without or within'...dronin' drones with squiggles'n bleeps keepin' th'voyage on course for th'furthest reaches o' out-there-ness...very much soundin' like those avantcomputer LPs from th'60s 'n some seventies krautrock gettin' cozy together, does not in any way register as made in th'nineties (that would be more like frightful dullards playin' with technology)...its sonic boom(spacemen3)'n eddie prevost(AMM)'n some other cats gettin' down to over an hours worth o' groovy trancin' thats well nice when loafin' on afternoons o' greenleaf indulgence amongst th'ancient ones in high garrets above th'bustlin' metropolis...
