I cannot begin to understand the antipathy shown towards this record by the reviewers on this page, only to suggest that maybe they are suffering from elitism (as spiritualized became ever more popular with this release). I appreciate some of the criticisms, namely that all the songs sound the same, but if this had been a problem surely none of us would have listened to any of Jason Pierce's songs after the first Spaceman 3 record. As for the lyrics being weak, well, firstly, Pierce has never shown any desire to emulate Bob Dylan in this department, and secondly, i think to level this at him is to misunderstand the wit and irony evident in his work.
So, what IS good about 'Let It Come Down'? One of its main stengths is the sense of euphoria it generates in the listener in terms of both the lyrics and the music. While not quite being worthy of the Polyphonic Spree there is a playfulness and an apparent zest for life on display here (although, this being a Spiritualized record there are of course numerous references to narcotics and one gets the feeling that by zest for life one really means a zest for getting as wasted as possible). As for the music, it is unreservedly beautiful and the lush and complex orchestrations and arrangements, in essence, all but make the lyrics completely insignifcant. It is the music that makes this record the masterpiece it is (it is far more consistant and ultimately more more moving than 'Ladies and Gentlemen...'). In fact, one could imagine Sinatra singing something like 'Anything More', and really there is no bigger compliment.

Jason Pierce rarely describes what his music is truly about, the music press ooh and ahh about it, but one thing is clear; if 'Ladies and Gentlemen...' was pain and the blues, then 'Let It Come Down' is healing for the soul. And it is a magnificent healing.
Lyrically it is as brilliant as it's predecessor yet infinitely brighter, not so much hopeful as having found the hope. Where it differs greatly from Spiritualized's earlier work and marks a great step for rock music is its melding of a rock band and orchestra, seen throughout the album. For once they actually work together, guitars and strings, bass and horns... it all makes glorious heart wrenching sense.
Whether you've been exposed to Spiritualized before or not, give it a go. Your heart might just need it.

After 'Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating in Space' masterpiece, Jason Pierce gives to the world another collection of majestic lush rock album and for consequence another step into the gallery of the geniuses of the modern music. Dense orchestral and choral sections using about 100 musicians resulting in the most song based album yet from Spiritualized which also makes the band one of the best of all time. Here in 'Let It Come Down' Pierce's influences are distilled into the complex arrangements creating a single identity that brings to the listener a complete sense of pleasure in each song even in the blistering 'The Twelve Steps', sweet 'The Straight And The Narrow' and intricate 'Out Of Sight'. Another glorious masterpiece recommended to all enthusiastics of good music.

It's not the same as laser guided melodies but then it doesn't need to be.I have all the spiritualized albums and it's probably a toss up between these two as their best album even though they are all good.You won't find better pop perfection than the track 'do it all over again'.This is an album i return to time after time.It's probably a little more accessable than laser guided melodies(which i also love, but a lot of friends find it dreary..)
Definetely a good album to try spiritualized out.And essential if you liked any of the other spiritualized albums.You won't be dissapointed.
