SPIRITUALIZED - SONGS IN A&E - 4* Delayed by debilitating illness, this is nevertheless Jason Spaceman’s best since Ladies & Gentleman…

Plus here are some of UNCUT's recommended new releases from the past few weeks - check out these albums if you haven't already:

BON IVER - FOR EMMA, FOREVER AGO - 5* Uncut's Album of the Month - A remote cabin in Wisconsin. Two dead deer for food. A guitar. The result? A classic debut album. Accompanied by an in-depth interview with Justin Vernon, aka Bon Iver.

Willard Grant Conspiracy - Pilgrim's Road - 4* Uncut's Americana Album of the Month is the opulent seventh LP from Robert Fisher’s ever-evolving collective. Check out the Uncut review here.

MARTHA WAINWRIGHT - I KNOW YOU'RE MARRIED BUT I'VE GOT FEELINGS TOO - 3* The baby of the Wainwright clan grows up with assuredly mature second album.

STEVE WINWOOD - NINE LIVES 3* Have Faith! Stevie reaches back for the real nitty-gritty. Album features great moments from Winwood's former touring partner, Eric Clapton.

The Last Shadow Puppets - The Age of the Understatement - 4* It's finally here - Arctic Monkeys and Rascals' Miles Kane's project is a lush affair. Check out Uncut's review of the current UK album's chart number one record here.

Isobel Campbell and Mark Lanegan - Sunday At Devil Dirt - 4* The follow up to the pair's debut collaboration Ballad of the Broken Seas, sees the moody return of the Sonny & Cher of grunge. Check out the Uncut review here.

Madonna - Hard Candy - 3* Back to bubblegum basics for the Material Girl - featuring Justin Timberlake, Timbaland and The Neptunes.

Portishead - Third 5* - Magnificent return and reinvention from the Bristol three + indepth Q&A with Geoff Barrow.

The Breeders - Mountain Battles 4* - The Breeders return with only their fourth album in 18 years but Kim and Kelley Deal remain defiantly nonchalant - check out our review here, includes a Q&A with Kim Deal.
