Spiritualized: Ladies And Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space LP
Originally released in 1997 (on the same day as OK Computer), Ladies And Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space is the third full-length effort from Jason Pierce's post-Spacemen 3 project Spiritualized, and his most brilliant work to date. A hypnotic, narcotic, psychedelic gospel album full of confessional songs about heartbreak and drug abuse, this record is a flat out masterpiece which received a "10.0" rating from Pitchfork and that NME placed at No. 1, just ahead of the aforementioned OK Computer, in their Album of the Year Poll. The Spaceman Reissue Program edition of Ladies And Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space promises to give those recordings the fullest spectrum audio and physical treatment they've deserved since 1992. It will be the third in this series, following Lazer Guided Melodies and Pure Phase, with 180g double albums cut from original sources by Alchemy Mastering, presented in a gatefold jacket adorned by reworked art by Mark Farrow.
