Sweet Heart Sweet Light is the seventh studio album by Spiritualized. It was released on 16 April 2012, on Double Six Records. The band spent two years recording the album, in three different cities, and frontman Jason Pierce spent another year mixing it at home.
Sweet Heart Sweet Light fits that description. Yet it's not a drastic transformation as much as an acute refinement. Pierce is still using large orchestras and choirs to take his Robert Johnson blues way past the crossroads, to vistas that are as endless as they are empty. When I sing, 'Help me, Jesus,' you know I'm not asking for help fixing the fucking ca. Such an all-or-nothing attitude is risky, but that's the whole point. Pierce mixed Sweet Heart over eight drawn-out months under something of a drug-induced stupor. But it wasn't the kind of drug-induced stupor Pierce is known for. At the time, he was being hit with experimental chemotherapy treatments to combat a degenerative liver disease.
Complete your Spiritualized? collection. Read on spiritualized message board that many of the UK white vinyls were VERY badly pressed (sound all muffled and bad) and they are offering a replacement black vinyl. Read up if yours is bad. US sounds great. Responder Ver 1 respuesta Notifícame Helpful.
Truly, Sweet Heart, Sweet Light is one of those gorgeous things and, if nothing else, the most profound late statement Spaceman has given us in a decade. I have never listen to any of Spiritualized discography but after hearing this album, i damn will now. Their LP "Truly, Sweet Heart, Sweet Light" coat a wide array of space rock, chamber pop and neo-psychedelia that feels more purification with the blissful soundscape. Their single track alone "Hey Jane" is a great example of the band displaying a catchy melody and evolving throughout the tune. Some tracks of the track-list feels more uplifting and cheerful.

Spiritualized have never recorded a bad album. Depending on your feelings about Amazing Grace, they’ve never recorded one that’s less than great. That one had Hold On, so I’m on the pro-Amazing Grace side of that particular divide. Ever since the band formed, Jason Pierce, the only constant member, has hit on a style that just works every time: Fragile hymns to lovesickness and addiction, sung in a disaffected monotone, and built up with so many waves of lovingly arranged instruments and expansive production techniques that they sound like cathedrals of light
