I first heard this album in the early 90s, just after it was released. Some friends had it and its distinctive cover caught my eye. It was played to death in our dingy student digs, but I still love it. Apparently the two sides(on vinyl) were recorded separately by Jason Spaceman and Sonic Boom after they had fallen out with each other(don't know if that's 100% true, but it adds to the interest of the band). Its hard to differentiate between the different sides as both carry the same distinctive style or theme. Lots of complex bass, crashing symbols and the ever fantastic, heavily effected guitar. Those that like a spot of flanger will love this album. Talk about spaced out! You need to play this album a lot, preferably loudly, to really appreciate it. I have fond memories of seeing the album played live(if you can call it that) when Jason Spaceman and Sonic Boom toured separately - strange idea, but fantastic sets. They both played the same sorts of venues and attracted the same crowds. It sounded even better being stood(or sat!) in front of them - they were great to watch as well, with fantastic atmosphere and smokey strobe lighting giving a really cool but mysterious ambience. Listening to this album nowadays takes me back all those years. Hazy summer evenings, hangin out with friends, too many beers, too much dancing, too much socialising. Fans of Spiritualized will like this album - remember this is where Spiritualized originated. I'm surprised their success hasn't made Spacemen 3 more popular. Maybe this will lead their comeback. To the untrained ear, many of the tracks will sound the same, but turn up bass, crank up the volume and chill out. Man!

I first bought this on tape in 1990, but dug it out of a dusty tape bin I found at home and played it the other day - I thought it was time to update it onto CD. This really takes me back to 1990, being at 6th form college, and all that. This record really fizzes - Spacemen 3 obviously had a lot of fog in their minds at the time - the music mixes a really retro rock n' roll sound with the Stooges meets the Beach Boys goes surfing on a sea of chemicals and then sinks underground and gets dirty with Velvet Underground whilst mulling over some Motown. The record swaggers dangerously, accentuated by the two protagonists, Jason Spaceman (who went on to form Spiritualised) and Sonic Boom (you've gotta love the audacity), who were a fiery pair; they effectively wrote half the songs each and thus a side of the record each. The record opens with the hypnotic and looping "Big City", that has a couple of sparse lyrics voiced over a slow-built up layering of keyboards. "I love you" is a stonking chemical rock n' roll sound with a walking bass line, a laid back riff and stoned flute solo as the song tails off. Other notable tracks are "Set me free" and "Hypnotised". "Feel so sad", has an unearthly sound to it as the instruments fade in and out - it is difficult to locate the beginning and the end to the song. "Recurring", is a well kept secret - the band were a bunch of nutters, but this record is special. It has a homebaked studio feel with Vox guitars, tremeloes bluesharps and "drones"; the guys tease the sound and don't push the music down the earholes of the listener, they are economical with the music. This record could so easily have become pretentious but avoids it...just. This is an uneasy listen at first, but grows on you - I think it ages pretty well as it doesn't sit well in any category, except for wigged out space soup - if there is such a thing.

This album is not as good as the classic Spacemen albums (Perfect Prescription and Playing With Fire), though is intersting for a number of reasons. On this album you get to see the difference between the two creative forces behind the band - Sonic Boom (tracks 1-8) and Jason Pierce (the rest). So we have the first half of the album which is minimalist, slightly (and strangely) house-influenced, and features Sonic Boom's unmistakeable drawl. The stand out tracks are the legendary 'Big City', and the Honey-esque 'Just to see you Smile'. The second half is Jason Pierce's, and has the blissful, smacked-out 'Sometimes' aswell as other blissful, smacked-out songs about the usuall things (Drugs and Women, the imperfections of). This is beautiful on lazy summer evening when you have nothing to do but sleep or think about either of the above topics.

this album is the "LET IT BE" off the ecstasy generation ,the last album by one of the greatest bands of the era ,as they were imploding from personal squabbles ,conflicts and tensions between the two songwriters pierce and kember ,so much so that the original vinyl ended up with songs by pierce on one side and kember on the other ,shortly afterwards the band split with pierce going on to form spiritualised and kember ,sonic boom ,EAR etc ,I still remember how distraught i was, had followed them fanatically since thier early days in rugby ,thier live performances were incredible events,and the albums they released got better and better as they honed thier sound and studio recording knowledge ,all in all an amazing swansong ,but if i was really pushed i would say if you were just getting into them start with playing with fire ,this showcases the spacemen working as a whole to create some truly beautiful music
