Spiritualized: Sweet Heart, Sweet Light
Buy! - (Fat Possum)
This veteran British band’s seventh studio album is an often-gorgeous set of epic psych-rock containing elements of soul, gospel, prog and more, with elaborately arranged songs fleshed out with distorted psych guitars, celestial organ, cinematic strings, horns, gospelized choruses and bold pop melodies. Jason Pierce’s emotionally vulnerable lyrics are more mortality-minded than ever, veering from earthly dissipation to heavenly transcendence (Pierce was recently struck with degenerative liver disease, a few years after a bout of double pneumonia nearly killed him). 4/13/2012 - Don Yates
