Spiritualized

"...as evinced by Spiritualized's latest release "Sweet Heart Sweet Light," Pierce has yet to come close to hitting the bottom of this particularly deep well, and as the group ably showed at a sold out Metro Thursday night, Spiritualized has also found a comfortable place balancing bombast with its more subtle moments. That's fitting, as Pierce's songs, too, have long explored various contrasts, the push and pull between despair and salvation, sickness and cure, noise and beauty, the extremes of darkness and -- like emerging from a long, dark tunnel -- the euphoric release of light. At its best and most grandiose, it's quite a rush..." [Chicago Tribune]
