SPIRITUALIZED: “Amazing Grace” LP

Celebrating 20 years this year. Spiritualized and Fat Possum Records announce the reissue of Amazing Grace on January 19, 2024 as part of the second volume of The Spaceman Reissue Program: Curated by J Spaceman. Remastered for vinyl in London by engineer Matt Colton, the 180 gram album features lacquer cuts by Metropolis Mastering, presented in a gatefold jacket designed by Mark Farrow.

“Pierce’s gift for the spiritual lament is as acute here as it has ever been, Rated X’s jazz beginnings coalescing into a broken ballad, Oh Baby awash in tears-on-cymbals percussion.” MOJO – 4 stars ****

“The opening ‘This Little Life Of Mine’ is all fuzzed-out, raw, Stooges-esque guitar while ‘The Power and The Glory’ adds a touch of blazing free jazz to the racket. However, it’s not all noisy nihilism and when the album slows and breathes a little is when it most comes to life, from the tender ‘Hold On’ to the moving tribute to Acetone singer ‘The Ballad Of Richie Lee’. If this is an overlooked Spiritualized album then 20 years on it’s well worth another try.” Uncut – 8/10
