And Nothing Hurt is the eighth album from Spiritualized, the follow up to 2012’s Sweet Heart, Sweet Light. From the opening lullaby of ‘A Perfect Miracle’ through to the fading Morse code at the close of ‘Sail On Through’, it painstakingly wraps layer upon layer of gloriously transcendent sound together to create a mesmerizing and cinematic collection of songs.
For the listener, the nine tracks on And Nothing Hurt effortlessly replicate the scale and power of Spiritualized’s previous releases, whether it’s the sonic blowback of ‘On The Sunshine’, the last dime in the jukebox love letter of ‘Let’s Dance’ or the swell of an imaginary orchestra that seems to lift ‘Damaged’ towards the heavens as it plays out.
Note: The LP is available on indies-only white vinyl. The LP in the deluxe box set is on limited orange vinyl, and comes with a 24-page saddle-stitched book.
