Spiritualized - Songs in A&E

After a bout with double pneumonia, Jason Pierce is back after a five year absence with Songs in A&E...not chords mind you, but a reference to the ER, which is called Accident & Emergency in the UK.

This sobering brush with death seems to have inspired a truly great record that radiates with palpable urgency. Though Pierce's vocals are cracked and weary, Spiritualized hasn't sounded this strong in a decade.

Borrowed Your Gun

Sweet Talk
