A few songs on Songs in A&E run on a bit too long- this is a Spiritualized record, after all- and from some angles a few arrangements can sound hokey. The big rocker "I Gotta Fire" is like the Stone Roses covering Sonic Youth's "Bull in the Heather", but even on lesser tracks, a delightful oboe or a crazy lyric or a swelling gospel chorus swoops in and gives you a reason to replay the track. Pierce is again walking mopey, orchestral, minimalist rock out to the margins of taste and messing with your head all over the place. These oppositional concepts overlap more than ever on A&E, but the album only sounds muddled or muddied during a few clunky transitions. And weirdly, those serve to make you more aware than ever of the greatness of what he's doing the rest of the time.

Amazing Grace is the fifth album by the British rock band Spiritualized, so named to indicate its considerable gospel influence. Although the title hymn does not appear on the album (Spiritualized have covered it previously, and released a free-jazz version as a b-side in 2001, and also on Complete Works Vol. 2), the ballad "Hold On" is based upon the same melody, and the opening track "This Little Life Of Mine" is clearly indebted to the spiritual "This Little Light Of Mine".

The album is probably the best thing that Jason Pierce has done since Ladies and Gentleman We Are Floating in Space. Interestingly, a lot of the proper songs here are pretty short, at least for Spiritualized, though Pierce’s knack for building tension is still on display. Compositions like lead single Soul on Fire and You Lie You Cheat integrate elements of soulful gospel and ear-ringing shoegazer and work themselves economically into instrumental freakouts in under four minutes. Album centerpiece Baby I’m Just a Fool is the exception that proves the rule, coasting in on staccato acoustic guitar and marimba before gradually blossoming into five minutes of white-hot noise

Spiritualized, Songs in A&E. Even so, his sixth album's emotional power mostly transcends any sense of deja vu. Delayed and coloured by a near-fatal bout of double pneu-monia, it is his most moving record since 1997's Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating in Space. Much of its pleasure derives from poignant juxtapositions: the way morbid, Townes Van Zandt-style country is underpinned by the wheezing of a respirator on Death Take Your Fiddle, or the foaming distortion of You Lie You Cheat gives way to beatific choral harmonies. In more ways than one, Pierce sounds revived.

Spiritualized – Songs in A&E. with a little guidance from m. He even went as far as nicknaming the 1929 Gibson L/00 he wrote many of Songs in A&E on as "The Devil" in the liner notes. After all of the daemons Pierce has escaped he is one fortunate chap, but not as lucky as us - the listeners of his sixth disc as the frontman of Spiritualized. Other songs could stand to be trimmed but the meaty bones that show give this album its identity. A&E's protagonist (possibly Pierce himself) is pervaded by harrowing tales and claustrophobic drug-addled musings. He desperately tries to grapple with a smidgen of of spiritual resonance nestled within it all. These are songs of hope, largely heard through subtle flourishes.
