Spaceman did it again. And really good.

(4 out of 5 stars)
"Yes, he did... I've been reading other reviews where they compare this album to Ladies & Gentlemen We Are Floating in Space and that's not a good point to start. Since this record has all the elements that Jason Pierce have used before for previous Spiritualized outputs (fuzz, jams, brass, strings, gospel choirs...) this doesn't mean Let It Come Down is repetitive or a copy. Like every of their records this one has really its own identity and works in different levels, high and low.
A song like "Stop yout crying" can make you smile or cry, depending your mood that day. The shiny pop of "Do it all over again", the fuzz of "Twelve steps", the chemical "The straight and the narrow", the dreamy "Out of sight" are also amazing tracks that makes this release and "Ladies and gentleman we are floating in space" (in 1st place) a must-have if you are interested in Spiritualized music.
For those who felt disappointed with this one, please give it another chance, after a few listens you will find a really great album by a unique band in british music.
