Re: Songs in A&E - Editions

I must say, this part of the eBay listing made me chuckle/groan: "It has all the flow of previous Spiritualized classics, only here there is no hiding behind studio effects, or screaming tornados of guitar feedback." There's been a similar quote for every Spiritualized record that came after Pure Ph...

Re: Radio play tonight, March 17th

I've loved this song since I first heard it on one of the recordings of the Acoustic Mainlines tour. I loved it even more when I got to experience it live at the Toronto show. And now? Good God, what a great track! When I first heard it, I though that it had great potential to be a hit. I never seem...

Re: i-Tunes Festival, March 2nd

If the 2007 iTunes Festival is anything to go by, the various EPs were available in the iTunes store starting about a month after the Festival began. The 2007 Festival took place in July and the iTunes Store started releasing them in early August and continued staggering the releases for the next 3 ...

I wonder how.......? Happy?
It can't be a coincidence that there is a "+" after "Spiritualized" on the logo next to the press release rather than the familiar "R" in a circle...

Peace.

Re: i-Tunes Festival, March 2nd

Will this be available through ALL iTunes stores (specifically iTunes Canada?) or will us non-UKers have to get this, um, illegally?...

^You're right about "No Hidden Path" being an instant Neil classic. And live, he takes it to a WHOLE other level. You're in for a treat :D ...

Re: Spectrum-2008 N. American dates

I'm sad to report that I think the Toronto gig will be my last Sonic Boom show. I was quite disappointed with what I saw that night, partly because I thought this might be the "full band" tour Sonic had been promising for 2008 (it was billed as "Spectrum", after all). But nope, just Sonic triggering...

Re: chrome dreams II

Yeah, I love that record, too! "Shining Light" actually reminds me of Spiritualized a little and is a gorgeous song. Some people think that "Ordinary People" doesn't fit in with the rest of the album. While I agree that the album maybe works better without it thematically and sonically, I wouldn't t...
