fluxblog on spiritualized's 'come together'

On other tracks from Ladies and Gentlemen, We Are Floating In Space, the waves of sound are comforting and numbing, but in this, it pounds down on you, like he’s trying to beat some sense into himself. It’s futile, though — as the song tapers off and bleeds into the woozy opening section of “I Think I’m In Love,” it’s like slipping back into a stupor.


+1. (Also, I saw Spiritualized open up for Radiohead on the OK Computer tour, and they were fantastic. When they did "Come Together" the otherwise too-cool-for-school shoe-gazing Yorke-worshipping crowd looked up and took notice.)
