Spiritualised - Ladies and Gentlemen

Their vision was to release this album as medication. Packaged as a giant pill in its own foil bubble-pack, with accompanying instructions about how to take the medication, the packaging - all too often missing these days, but still seen in Spiritualized's records - immediately told us what to expect: here was an album about swamping the harsh realities of life, about escaping from the day-to-day humdrum, about getting out of it to escape the pain.

Originally released in 1997 it is being re-released in the UK this month
