4.0 out of 5 stars One for the Spiritualized nuts, 2 April 2003
This review is from: Complete Works Vol.1 (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.
