Spiritualized: The Astoria, London
Paul Trynka, MOJO, August 1997
SPIRITUALIZED'S SIMPLE, sublime Ladies & Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space has gained untold credibility by being nominated 'this year's drugs album' a shorthand label encouraged by the first production run's pressed foil packaging, which looks like the home of an over-endowed paracetamol. But the album represents an introverted trip, and one that's difficult to project into a packed auditorium.
