SPIRITUALIZED Released Masterwork ‘LET IT COME DOWN’ 20 Years Ago

Back in time

18 September 2021

Who: Former Spacemen 3 member Jason Pierce and his band
Active: 1990-present / 8 studio albums so far

Anniversary album: LET IT COME DOWN
Released: 17 September 2001 – 20 years ago

Pitchfork wrote: “With all of Jason Pierce’s tormented vocals, with his talk
of addiction and recovery, of fractured love, of the burden of religion on the
soul; with all this, you’d expect him to be confined to a straitjacket. But rather,
he manages to make it all sound glorious, as if these rock-bottom moments
are equally responsible for the beauty of living– or of not dying.”

Full review here. Score: 8.5/10.

Turn Up The Volume: One of the best works of soul space
crusader Jason Pierce and his symphonic orchestra.

Key track: Lord Can You Hear Me…

A jaw-dropping live version…
