Sounds wonderful and cut at 45RPM. The plain hate is just hearsay here.

I made the mistake of buying it and THEN reading reviews. Realized I had indeed purchased the Plain Recordings version. Braced myself for the worst. Well, those concerns were *mostly* unfounded. It sounds pretty good, if not a tad thin and a bit quiet in spots.

This one is a real peach. Mesmerizing. Stunning. Arguably his masterwork, depending upon your opinion of Ladies and Gentlemen or Pure Phase. Worth the trouble if you can find a clean original Dedicated pressing.

Like the last commenter, my copy is cut at 45rpm and also sounds great.

As reviewed by me in December 2000:

Fans of Spacemen 3 and Slowdive should enjoy this one. It's hi-fi shoegaze, with the distortion and noise safely reigned in, effectively lifting a haze that had been obscuring some fabulous psychedelic pop songwriting. However, in seeking sophistication the genre lost a bit of its edge. Maybe it's just the romance of shoegaze as rock 'n' roll wearing off, though, for this album tries out new ideas and is every bit as earnest as J. Spaceman's earlier productions. Most of the tracks have contemplative vocals woven seamlessly into the sonic tapestry, and often hint at the sound of old Primal Scream in more ways than one.

My copy is definitely cut at 45rpm and sounds terrific, some bad reviews here on this pressing, but there must be some good ones out there, because mine plays absolutely fine. Go figure.

this and Pure Phase are really all you need of music.

The ultimate shoegazing album. While Ladies and Gentlemen is a masterpiece of Spiritualized as we know know them to be-purveyors of Gospel/Junkie rock, Lazer Guided Melodies is blissed out dream rock, and Shoegazing noise assaults. While staying closer to Spacemen 3 in spirit, this is nonetheless a product of Jason Pierce's noisy guitar centered mind, and not Sonic Boom's electronic/analog synth experimental style. One of the best albums ever made

Not only is the quality poor, but disc one, even though it states that it is "Stereo 45" actually plays at 33 1/3 RPM, while disc 2 states the same (Stereo 45) and actually *does* play at 45 RPM. No idea how such a ridiculous manufacturing error can occur.
