don't get enough love on DiS.
Or am I wrong?
*Worst joke of the day*
I have Gimme Fiction and I've heard Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga, but they just don't do anything for me.
are a band you cannot love - there just okay
if anyone wants a free copy, PM me, I don't ever want to listen to it again!
(yeah, I can do that) Spoon are well good...but they don't have the knockout songs to make them loved. You always wanna give 'em a B+.
that Spoon are a great band and are stupidly conistent, as in consistently good... but have never done a GREAT song, at least not enough to make them a band I could love?
but I do think they have some great songs. I think the thing is that all their albums are albums which create a mood and which you'd listen to all the way through and which basically don't have filler, but individual songs doesn't necessarily stand out as better than the others. I'm not explaining this very well.
I'd class Everything Hits At Once, The Underdog, Anything You Want and Sister Jack among others as great.
to the best of my knowledge.
I've listened to Kill The Moonlight a lot, I think its a really good album.
But I must say I dont think I could ever love them; they stop short of brilliance.
but that does seem to be the prevailing opinion, no?
a great band. I know they get a bit of a 'meh' reception on here, but they've never failed for me; the idea that they don't have killer tracks is a bit of a joke too. They've got a back catalogue crammed with them. Made an awesome 22 track best of for my sister last year.
And yes, I have all my Spoon records signed, setlists, and am a super fanboy.
And I think "The Ghost of you Lingers" is a phenomenal track. Genius. But then again as a track it's very uncharacteristic of their work as a whole, so go figure.
I'm disappointed in DiS, for the first time. Spoon are a good band, and most importantly they're one of the most rhythmic 'melodic' bands around - so funky and tight. They'll never get enough love here, but certainly 'Gimme Fiction' is a solid album that'll never get boring.
..are really great.
