Default Spacemen 3

The other day I was browsing around on Itunes when I stumbled upon these guys. I listened to their most popular songs and they sound great. Apparently these guys go in the same category with bands like The Black Angels and The Brian Jonestown Massacre. Does anyone else like Spacemen 3? And does anyone know what their best album is? I think I'm going to purchase one.

Playing With Fire is my favorite, but I just got into them. Loose Lips sink ships is more knowledgeable in the matter of Spacemen 3 I think.

"Playing With Fire" was one of their most popular albums, but in no way is it their best. "The Perfect Prescription" and "Taking Drugs to Make Music Take Drugs" are their best IMO, but anyway "Playing With Fire" is their most accessible album and definately worth checking out if you're just getting into them. I'd also reccomend that you check out Spiritualized(Jason Peirce) and Spectrum(Peter Kember aka. Sonic Boom) if you're into Spacemen 3.

ps. if anyone has a hard time finding Spectrum albums then just give me a pm and I'll help you out.

Nope, but best buy sells some of their albums online though.

Ok, well I figure If I'm gonna shop online I'll just search on Amazon. I'm thinking about buying either Playing With Fire or Perfect Perscription and I'm also going to get Phallus Dei by Amon Düül II. Also, which album has the song "I Love You" on it?

Try Loop and Swervedriver too. You may like them as they share certain musical traits.

Loop albums are hard to come by...but anyways "Gilded Eternity" is a great album.

I just downloaded The Perfect Perscription the other night. I found the second half of the album to be rather unnecessary, but the first half is great. Songs like "Walking With Jesus," "Transparent Radiation," and "Take Me To The Other Side" are truly masterpieces. I'm definately looking forward to getting more of their work.
