The Independent Culture


"The songs come packaged with a large string section as standard, generally there are horns involved, and their penchant for using gospel choirs is in effect frequently... Spiritualized have mastered the use of these instruments to be able to lift a song effortlessly from its standard verse into a magnificent chorus. This ability is used in full force on Sweet Heart Sweet Light, with every song possessing a chorus that you instantly have a primal urge to sing along to."

"The overriding vibe on Sweet Heart Sweet Light is that of bloated self-parody, and gratuitous self-pity."

"This is a 'traditional' Spiritualized album down to its marrow, and a great one."
