  • Much of the reason that the Pure Phase album seemed a tad disappointing upon its 1995 release was that the Electric Mainline teaser EP issued over a year earlier was so fantastic -- its three tracks possess an organic vitality and soulful grit that the overly fussy versions reprised on Pure Phase sorely lack. "Good Times" exists at the intersection of cosmic rock & roll and salt-of-the-earth R&B, fusing a chugging, hypnotic guitar riff with backing vocals and horn arrangements channeled from some off-planet franchise of Muscle Shoals Studios. "Lay Back in the Sun" somehow manages to achieve exit velocity despite (or maybe because of) a grinding, circular melody that actually goes nowhere, and the two-part instrumental title cut captures the same arriving-without-traveling zeitgeist. Jason Pierce advises in the liner notes to "play loud 'n' drive fast" -- words worth heeding at all times. ~ Jason Ankeny

Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (5/18/95, p.93) - 3.5 Stars - Very Good - "...[Jason] Pierce's inspirations have been immersed in a lush stream of sound, head music that alternately caresses and bombards the senses....more like a loop unraveling than a series of songs..."

Q (3/95, p.104) - 3 Stars - Good - "...Music for the unhurried."

Alternative Press (5/95, p.80) - "...the velvety noise of Spiritualized decadently envelops you....Sonically, PURE PHASE is a more soothing than fuzzed-out album, smoothed over by a string quartet....very gorgeous and intriguing, using repetition in a way that never becomes monotonous..."

Option (7-8/95, p.139) - "...the songs themselves [are] worth the effort...this is very good for an album of ballads..."

NME (Magazine) (12/23-30/95, pp.22-23) - Ranked #23 in NME's `Top 50 Albums Of The Year' for 1995.

Simon Hamley on
 
Evolving from the droneful Spacemen 3, Spiritualized take things a step higher (musically as well as spiritually). This album is filled with tranquil songs, etched with fuzzy guitar and punctuated by trombone,flutes and strings. I suggest you hear the Slide Song before you live another day. Let them take you higher.
