Quite excellent album by British rock band Spiritualized, released in May 1997. The special edition packaging was designed to look like a large pill packet. It had a sticker on the box exactly like a UK prescription label you would get if you bought the packet from a chemists (pharmacy for you non-UKers). The CD was kept inside a "blister package" - again, just like a pill. To get at the CD, you had to "pop" the disc out of the blister pack - breaking the foil as you did so. Utter Coolness.

The box had things written on it like "For Aural administration only" and "Each Tablet contains 70 min", as well as "Store out of reach of children." In the box was a leaflet detailing the tracks and production notes, again done exactly like the advice leaflets you get with medicine. The leaflet had things written on it like "What is Spiritualized used for? 'Spiritualized is used to treat the heart and soul'" and "What is the recommended dose? 'Play once, twice daily or as recommended by your doctor or pharmacist'"

This CD comes highly recommended by your pharmacist (i.e. me :)

Ladies and gentlemen we are floating in space 

All I want in life's a little bit of love
To take the pain away
Getting strong today
A giant step each day
All I want in life's a little bit of love
To take the pain away
Getting strong today
A giant step each day
I've been told
Only fools rush in
Only fools rush in
But I don't believe
I don't believe
I could still fall in love with you 

I will love you till I die
And I will love you all the time
So please put your sweet hand in mine
And float in space and drift in time
All the time until I die
We'll float in space, just you and I
And I will love you till I die
And I will love you all the time
So please put your sweet hand in mine
And float in space and drift in time
All the time until I die
We'll float in space, just you and I 

Baby I love you today
I guess that's what you want
And I don't know where we are all going
Life don't get stranger than this
It is what it is
And I don't know where we are all going 

I will love you till I die
And I will love you all the time
Everything happens today
And we're out here in space
And I don't know where we are all going
Baby I love you today
I guess that's what you want
And I don't know where we are all going
