Album: Lazer Guided Melodies
. . .
In the beginning, there was Spaceman 3, who sounded exactly like their name, and whom I could never get into, though I’ve tried more than once over the decades. So let’s pin the blame for that squarely on me, and instead focus on Spiritualized, the band that J Spaceman — AKA Jason Pierce — formed in the aftermath of that band’s dissolution.
The first Spiritualized studio album — the perfectly-named Lazer Guided Melodies — came out in 1992. The most recent one — the also perfectly-named Everything Was Beautiful — came out just a couple of months ago. Over that three-decade period, Pierce has occasionally resurfaced to put out another studio collection, issuing a grand total of nine.
