Out of the remnants of Spaceman 3, Spiritualized took the drugged out Space Rock/Shoegazing of the previous band to higher levels. The band was a beautiful contradiction of minimalist sounds with deep arrangements and took advantage of these skills in the recording studio. Like many in the British Alternative scene, Spiritualized is burdened by their inability to crack the U.S. market as realistically a band needs that to ever become indicted in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
