5.0 out of 5 stars What Happened?, 4 Dec. 2009
This review is from: Ladies & Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space (Audio CD)
Ah, the memories.............sorry got lost in thought there for a moment, but do you remember the late 90's?, yeah alright I'll continue.

Remember when (British) bands were seemingly releasing one great record a week, when the charts were a battle between the great (Pulp) the legendary (Blur) and the boorish (Oasis), Radiohead and The Super Furry Animals were constantly battling one-another for crown of most inventive and inspiring act in the world, Pavement & Neutral Milk Hotel were busy furrowing a path which American Indie would continue down for the next decade, and Jason Pierce of Spiritualized amidst all this, somehow managed to release one of the greatest long players this esteemed country has ever produced. Honestly, how did he do it?, you can almost smell the narcotics being used whenever you place this masterpeice into your stereo system.

To be honest I can't be bothered to list all the reasons this record is so great (I would be here for hours) and you can probably find the track-listing elsewhere so I can't be bothered to list them either, and to be frank I can't be bothered to tell you about all the (wonderful) extras this edition brings to the record either. I think my time would be much better spent by, y'know, actually listening to the bloody thing. But then you may ask, why bother writing a review at all?, why indeed, and to be honest (again?) I don't know. Maybe the sight of seeing N'Dubz and Pixie Lott battle for chart supremecy and the distinctly average Arctic Monkeys somehow becoming the critic's darling has prompted me to respond, and this is the only way my shallow, lonely mind could see how.

Maybe if I go on Amazon and declare my love of 'Ladies & Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space' it will in turn create a vortex by which suddenly SFA's 'Dark Days/Light Years' becomes the number one record of the year, and The Flaming Lips 'Embryonic' gets the kudo's it so rightly deserves. And (whisper it) Jason Pierce returns like a pheonix and manages to spit-roast the entire X-Factor judging panel on national TV.

But wait, I'm getting ahead of myself here, just buy this beautiful creation and wonder at it's greatness all other again, and (cliched phrase warning) to be honest (one last time) I've never been a particulary religious person so I don't know what God was doing for the first six days, but on the seventh he created 'Ladies & Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space'.
