I Saw the Light
The Mystery Zone
Got Nuffin
Don't Make Me a Target
Me and the Bean
Written in Reverse
Black Like Me
Something to Look Forward to
Nobody Gets Me But You
Rhthm & Soul
Don't You Evah

Is Love Forever
Cherry Bomb
Jonathon Fisk

Really great show. The new stuff worked well live. I was pretty shocked to get "Me and the Bean," and apparently one of few people there who even knew it.

Sorry I didn't relay your inaccurate opinion, Laz.

Between that and "Jonathon Fisk," I figured I'd forgive the lack of Gimme Friction tunes.

Incidentally, Friction was the LP I got signed since it's my favorite artwork of the Spoon LPs I own.

Oh? And where would you rank it?

If you put it above A Series of Sneaks, please hit yourself in the face with a hammer.

I'm not really ready to rank it in their canon yet. It's only been out for six days. Although I will say that I think it's better than Ga^5.

Unbelievable. There are considerably less memorable songs. It's a bit of a slog to sit through.

You guys are fucking crazy.

"Finer Feelings," "Cigarette Case," "Rhthm & Soul," "Eddie's Ragga," and (I apologize in advance for this) "Cherry Bomb" don't do much for me. In contrast, on Transference I only dislike "Trouble Comes Running" and could take or leave "Goodnight Laura."

In the upselling words of Lance's Mom, different strokes.

I think Finer Feelings is the best thing on there.

So GFY.

Of course, I put Ga x5 behind Girls Can Tell, A Series of Sneaks, and Gimme Fiction, maybe even Kill the Moonlight on certain days, so comparing it to Transference isn't really the point.

"Target," "Ghost," and "Black Like Me" are the real highlights of Ga^5 for me. And if it makes you feel any better or any less hostile, I hold Girls Can Tell, Sneaks, Fiction, and especially Kill the Moonlight in such high regard that Tranny probably won't pass them.

Time will tell though. Since it's a "grower" and all.

I felt that way about Ga Ga Blah though, so there's that. I'm just happy to be enjoying new Spoon.

I subscribe to this radio station's Youtube page, despite not having a clue where the radio station is located, as they upload cool stuff from their studio. They uploaded this today:

YouTube - Spoon - Beast and Dragon (Live on 89.3 The Current)

Probably my favorite Spoon jam right there. Very nice.

And what I take away from the CMG review is that I still don't give a fuck what CMG has to say.

That radio station posted another vid.

YouTube - Spoon - Don't You Evah (Live on 89.3 The Current)

It sounds extremely good

Well, now you can enjoy it too.


I'm actually quite easily identifiable in that picture taken from the stage that starts the video.
