Review 1: He may well be repeating himself... but Spiritualized are still a force. Review 2: With Amazing Grace, Pierce has achieved a perfect balance between his traditional blues-rock leanings and his appetite for studio excess. [Score is an average of both reviews: 79 and 90]
Apr 30, 2012i don't know why people keep insisting that this album is so bad... the best album to come out of spiritualized/spaceman 3... come on!! the ballad of richie lee? hold on?
when was jason pierce so "on the money" in other records? and the 2-3 minute blastoffs in the middle are just what you need in a bombastic spiritualized album.. they are breathers.. "never going back" is absolutely neccessery where it is!
best record out of a great band (and this review is written after sweet heart sweet light already came out)… Expand

WillieLAug 12, 2006Whats wrong with you people? WHATS WRONG?! This is another wonderful album from Pierce. Sure, its no Ladies And Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space, but what is? Take to mind that illness disrupted this recording and the songs like Hold On, Oh Baby and Lord Let It Rain on me really have effect. A great album. If not their best. Plus a Spiritualized parody for you - "Lord, Im On Heroin". I thought it was funny...… Expand
