A few songs on Songs in A&E run on a bit too long- this is a Spiritualized record, after all- and from some angles a few arrangements can sound hokey. The big rocker "I Gotta Fire" is like the Stone Roses covering Sonic Youth's "Bull in the Heather", but even on lesser tracks, a delightful oboe or a crazy lyric or a swelling gospel chorus swoops in and gives you a reason to replay the track. Pierce is again walking mopey, orchestral, minimalist rock out to the margins of taste and messing with your head all over the place. These oppositional concepts overlap more than ever on A&E, but the album only sounds muddled or muddied during a few clunky transitions. And weirdly, those serve to make you more aware than ever of the greatness of what he's doing the rest of the time.

The music on Songs in A&E were recorded in that aftermath, but most of the album was written two years before he got sick; with so much of it about near death and survival, it feels like life imitating art. From the first notes of "Sweet Talk," it's obvious that a very different Spiritualized is up and about; an acoustic guitar, a sparse drum kit, the voice quartet, a few horns, and a minimal bassline fuel it. Pierce sweetly croons to a loved one in waltz time; his words are simultaneously appeasing and accusatory.

One thing that I will say about this album is that there are little to none good energetic tracks on here. I Gotta Fire & Yeah Yeah were energetic but meh, and that's about the most energy this album carries. That is not a bad thing at all. I have much preferred a more.
