With Deerhunter?! That's badass! They haven't been here since Gimme Fiction, they played with American Music Club then, which was also a fantastic 2 for the price of one type show.

Thanks for not playing Los Angeles, cocksuckers.

Considering my disappointment with this album, and the fact that I have no desire to see Deerhunter, I couldn't care less anyway.

Transference is 100% grower. At this stage, I can't say it made the incredible first impression GaGaGaGaGa did on first listen, but a few individual tracks did. The Mystery Zone is Spoon in their fucking element, Trouble Comes Running is a damn fine, snappy pop song, and Out Go The Lights is gorgeous. Really, really dig this album, and I think it's only going to get better.

GaGaGa really made an incredible first impression on you? Was it per-chance your first Spoon album? Not that it was bad, I just prefer the three prior to it from them.

Regardless, glad to hear you're liking the new'un. I'll order.

When put that way, it sounds like you were one being spooned.

Thanks for continuing to bone Florida, almost every cool "indie" band.

Transference has been pre-ordered, suckas.

I had heard every album except Telephono at that point. What can I say, it's still my second favorite Spoon release behind Girls Can Tell, and I don't see that changing any time soon. The Underdog isn't even overrated/whored out enough to make me think less of it.

That's koolz. Despite the Billy Joelishness, I still like The Underdog quite a bit. Great music video too. Girls Can Tell is badass. When I saw them on the Gimme tour, they played a ton of tracks from GCT, but I hadn't purchased the album at the time and was completely unfamiliar. Always sucks to realize you've heard songs you love live before, but didn't know them at the time!

Girls Can Tell is one of the best late-night albums ever IMO. Perfect for driving around, soaking in the sights of the city that Scorsese made a career out of, then going home and wondering why the hell you're still alone.

I hate ranking Spoon's albums because they were arguably the most consistently great band of the decade, and my affection for their work is all a matter of degrees, but I definitely rank Kill The Moonlight last, at least of their '00s work. Something about it just grates on me. There are a ton of strong melodies in there, but they tease you, because the songs never really develop fully. They build and build, and then just end. Over and over again. It's a very experimental record as far as songwriting structure is concerned, but it doesn't suit my taste.

I think Laz dislikes (or rates it the lowest at least) Kill the Moonlight as well. It was my intro to Spoon, so I'm sure I overrate from good memories associated to that to some extent, but it and Gimme are still my favs. Sorta go back and forth between the two in regards to which I think I like the most.

Yes, I rate it the lowest. I don't dislike anything the band has done.

Me and LM seem to be in a minority; it appears to be rated the highest among critics for some bizarre reason.

Girls Can Tell blows it out of the water.

You Got Yr Cherry Bomb is one of my favourite songs of the past decade.
