5.0 out of 5 stars Symbolic Of Jason Pierce's Genius 10 May 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is the first Spiritualized b-sides/rarities album, and has been worth the wait. This album covers the period of their first two albums (the amazing debut 'Lazer Guided Melodies' and the fantastic 'Pure Phase'), 1990 to 1993. The first track is the first Spirtualized single, 'Anyway That You Want Me' a cover of a 1967 Troggs single. It is startling - the trademark sound of Spiritualized is quickly established, and it is interesting to note that this was recorded when Spacemen Three were still together. The album is made up of two discs, and other highlights of the first disc include THREE(!!!) versions of Feel So Sad, Run and Sway, which is especially brilliant.
The second disc starts with 100 Bars (Accapella), which is a bit dull unless you like the sound of Kate Radley counting to 100. 'I Want You' is moving, but Medication (from 'Medication' EP)is powerful and perhaps better than the version on Pure Phase. 'Smiles', from the same EP, is suberb, as it starts ominously with some fuzz, then Pierce enters the fray briefly, stating "When you smile you are blinded to all the horrors I see" then the songs becomes a superb instumtmental, with great drums. Other highlights include the glorious pop of 'Good Dope/Good Fun' and 'Good Times'. This album is on the whole very interesting, and makes you want to delve more deeply into the history of one of the best bands of the last ten years. Roll on Volume Two, out later this year.

4.0 out of 5 stars One for the Spiritualized nuts 2 April 2003
By "ben10"
Format:Audio CD
If you love Spiritualized, but haven't been able to get hold of some of the rare early material, this perfectly packaged album is just lovely. It comes in a plain, white plastic case with a cardboard outer cover, and over 2 CDs covers some classic, simple Spiritualized music. Some of the songs are different (often better) versions of songs that appear elsewhere - Angel Sigh, Medication, Smiles - but many are B sides and rarities that are nigh on impossible to get hold of these days. Personal favourites include Anyway That You Want Me, a gorgeous Troggs cover that sweeps towards an irresistable finish, as Spiritualized songs often do, and Why Don't You Smile Now?, a Lou Reed cover, I think, and another example of the stuff that came out when Spaceman 3 split. Then there is the beautiful Feel So Sad, three version of which appear here, every one offering something slightly different (though possibly only to the die hard fan). Basically, it's a double album that proves just how raw and powerful they were back then (the collection covers songs up to Pure Phase, their second album), how great they still are live and how they mix the most tender songs with the most ear-splitting, crashing messy bits so brilliantly. Possibly there are some needless instrumental bits, but I reckon we can live with these. Splendid.

4.0 out of 5 stars A worthy endeavour 21 Nov 2004
By Lozarithm VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
More accurately The Complete Works Excluding Album Tracks And With Some Omissions, this limited edition release is nonetheless a marvellous collection of rare singles, EPs, promo recordings, flexi-discs, fan club exclusives and a complete John Peel session, all in pristine CD quality (even when one track had to be mastered directly from a flexi-disc as the original acetate master had been destroyed).
A few B-sides are missing - yet the 7 minute B-side version of Sway taking up valuable space turns out disappointingly to be identical to the readily-available LP version.
Nevertheless, it is a worthy endeavour to make the bulk of one's catalogue available on CD and the two discs have been sympathetically programmed

4.0 out of 5 stars space-rock a decade into the odyssey.. 11 April 2003
By lglk
Format:Audio CD
Hard to believe that the material on this CD was written over ten years ago - there is still nothing around that sounds quite like them. Grunge, britpop, nu-metal have all come (and mostly gone) in the meantime, while Spiritualized continue to progress along their space-rock odyssey.
Far from the standard 'Greatest Hits' packages, this CD collects various early singles, alternate versions, and other hard-to-find tracks, and as such, it is probably one for the fans - recent converts would probably be better off with the studio albums. This approach manages to combine nostalgia trips - I seem to remember exactly what I was doing when 'medication' came out with some unexpected treats. While it does not hang together in the same way as, for example. 'Ladies and Gentlemen..', the often unexpected choice of tracks makes up for this lack of coherence.
I remember an NME interview with Jason back when 'Lazer Guided Melodies' came out, saying that when he listened to that album, he heard melodies that he didn't remember playing, that ghosted into the process - which captures the elusive essence of many of these tunes.
And, having said that this is one for the faithful, 'Feel so sad' will still melt the heart of even the most casual listener..

4.0 out of 5 stars Complete your cellection now........ 1 April 2003
Format:Audio CD
There's bound to be some track versions on this album that you haven't got even if, like me, you've been a pretty ardent fan for a long, long time.
This album is really for the purists who want to be able to follow the development of some of Jason's material and with multiple versions of multiple tracks it does just that. I have to say however, that even the three versions of Feel So Sad are different enough to justifiably call them different songs completely. There are some crackers in here, like the "resonably hard to get hold of" Any Way That You Want Me (Spiritualized's first single) and the Good Dope/Good Fun version of Lay Back In The Sun (from the Greenpeace 7" single) that's followed by the Electric Mainline version of Lay Back In The Sun.
If you're a fan, buy it. If you don't own any Spiritualized music yet, then start with the albums - you'll appreciate this much more.
By the way - the only reason this doesn't get a five is that I listen to music a lot at work on a pc. The cd's making up this album have a player installed on them that you have to use. (You can't use Real or WM to play it.) This wouldn't be so bad if the player was of any quality, but it's not. It sounds tinny and cheap. Spiritualized (especially anything off LGM) definitely benefits from good quality sound equipment - and this little player doesn't do it justice. Shame on Jason for letting this happen.
