About this item

Restored ‘Original Gold Sleeve Edition’ on classic black vinyl. An intense neo-psychedelic gem that journeys through serenity before collapsing into its own itchy comedown. A glorious amalgamation of discordant psyche, Lou Reed hustle and Gospel surrealism. A kaleidoscopic blueprint for everything that followed, with lovingly restored artwork. Spacemen 3's second album is a remarkable departure from the band's 1986 debut, Sound Of Confusion. Reduced to a trio (guitarists / keyboardists Pete "Sonic Boom" Kember, Jason "Spaceman" Pierce, and bassist Pete Bassman), Spacemen 3 makes an asset out of the newfound lack of percussion, giving The Perfect Prescription a considerably less rock-oriented sound with much more open space in its varied, subtle arrangements.

“Like taking an acid bath in the dungeon of the mind.” Pitchfork.
