iTunes Editors’ Notes

Jason Pierce’s most optimistic album to date, Let It Come Down finds the Spiritualized maestro relieving himself of his demons and embracing the wide-eyed wonder of Phil Spector and Brian Wilson. Conceived in the spirit of the Ronettes, “Do It All Over Again” and “Stop Your Crying” are swelling, golden pop songs that are easily among Spiritualized’s most accessible and effervescent songs to date. Pierce’s knack for orchestral arrangement extends to mood pieces like “Out of Sight” and “The Straight and Narrow,” while “Anything More” recalls the melodramatic melancholy of Scott Walker. Of course, Pierce hasn’t abandoned his rock roots. He applies the Wall of Sound technique to sneering rock ’n roll on “On Fire” and “The Twelve Steps.” Pierce has always had a tradition of reworking old songs. So it seems particularly appropriate that Let It Come Down closes with the Spacemen 3-era hymn “Lord Can You Hear Me,” indicating that Pierce has the musical resources to make his old songs sound the way he originally intended. But perhaps more importantly, “Lord Can You Hear Me” helps restore Pierce’s faith in gospel music by reconciling the writer with his musical past.

Customer Reviews

Let It Come Down

One of the best albums of all time. A must have!

Beautiful

My first experience with this band was listening to this whole album earlier this evening. It's absolutely gorgeous. It's just so sincere. Heartbreaking and uplifting, somehow simultaneously. Just wonderful.

Everyone in the World should hear this music

I have loved every song by Spiritualized, but this album might be Jason's ultimate masterpiece. The music is like nothing I had ever heard before, and the lyrics raise a lot of questions that we all want to know. I can relate to this music but I think anyone can relate to it at least a little.
If you only want a couple songs, buy Do it All Over Again, Lord Can You Hear Me, Anything More, or the Straight and the Narrow. I know I'm spending my last iTunes dollar on lord can you hear me.

Formed from the ashes of the trance-rockers Spacemen 3, singer/guitarist Jason Pierce's group Spiritualized did not break away from his prior band's trademark hypnotic minimalism; instead, they perfected it. Drawing on the continued influence of the Velvet Underground, La Monte Young, and Steve Reich, Spiritualized staked out a common ground between minimalism and lush symphonics — while powered by simple, repetitious motifs, their songs simultaneously blossomed into rich, shimmering sonic...
