Album: Royal Albert Hall October 10 1997
. . .
What goes up must come down. Not only is it one of the most immutable laws of nature, it works on nearly every single level: physical, spiritual, emotional, metaphorical. In all of history, only Prince’s guitar at the Grammys has ever been able to defy it. And it’s so deep in the heart of Spiritualized’s music that it was probably inevitable that Jason Spaceman Pierce would rail against it.
As he does on my absolutely favorite Spiritualized song, the live version of “Take Your Time,” though quite naturally he takes his sweet time getting there. But it’s well worth it, and is probably the biggest example on how Spaceman fucks with his source material for the live album.
