No. 6 Record of 2008


Spiritualized – Songs in A&E

This is what I would like to think of when I think of gospel music.  It is definitely the kind of music of music that would make me want to believe in something. Jason Pierce(Aka J. Spaceman) is what I would like to think of an angel, a messenger, somebody that understands and knows the righteous path. He’s a guide. His music is his word, and that music is so powerful, when you’re in its grips you see nothing but an endless ray of light and your body is paralyzed. You’re limbs won’t move, they don’t want to. It’s like that point when you’re meditating, just right before you reach that state your body is fully relaxed, and you see it coming and you realize it. Nothing can stop you at this point, and you are completely joyous because you are no longer there. At least that’s how I felt when I witnessed him on stage at the Pitchfork Festival this year. Something about his presence gave me hope, there is something to look forward to. I never wanted it to end. Songs in A&E is what the angels sing in the afterlife. Criticize me all you want, but this album is beyond incredible.
