It's like James Mercer is scared of writing the same songs all over again, so he's changing the chord progressions just enough to make them forgettable.

BTW, Us has to be the strangest song in Spoon's discography. It gets pretty cool by the end tho

Transference is certainly what a subpar one sounds like.

If this is at least better than that, fine with me.

Port of Marrow was among the worst albums of its year, and based on the songs I've heard from this one, it will probably repeat that dubious distinction.

This new Spoon album fucking cooks, though. Certainly a lot less straightforward than They Want My Soul, but still infectious and groovy. Can I Sit Next to You is my favorite on first listen.

So good. Meticulous without being overcooked.

I don't know where I would rank Girls Can Tell in their discography, but Everything Hits at Once is comfortably in their top five songs.

Their best on both counts, IMO.

1. Girls Can Tell
2. GaGaGaGaGa
3. They Want My Soul
4. Kill the Moonlight
5. Gimme Fiction
6. A Series of Sneaks
7. Transference
8. Telephono

Too early to rank Hot Thoughts.

Wow I've only heard 2,3,7 and the new one. Didn't realize they had put out so many albums.

Tear It Down starts exactly like Bad Religion by Frank Ocean and I do a double take every time.

It doesn't happen all that often, but I actually agree with the Mojo review of Hot Thoughts:
"The main feeling it provokes is sincere admiration at a job well done, but a raised pulse, unfortunately, is something Spoon can't craft from scratch."
