I just watched Rockfeedback on TV; Spoon were on and sounded good. So what's the best album to start with?
'Girls Can Tell' so i'd say start with that (as it;s also one of their strongest albums). The first two are very Pixies inspired, Girls Can Tell was a turning point.
They havent made a bad album yet, the last one 'Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga' is also very bloody good! Go with 'Girls Can Tell'.
I'd definately say Girls can Tell, though you could really start with any of them. I started withh gimme fiction, personally, and its a fine album.
it has some of their best stuff on it, although to be honest they're an extremely consistent band and you can't go wrong with any of the last four records.
Anywhere. Girls Can Tell and Kill the Moonlight are generally considered best though. (Except for track 14--which is awesome-- on A Series of Sneaks, this one is sorta meh imo)
Everything Hits At Once is a choon
My order would be
1) Kill The Moonlight
2) Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga
3) Girls Can Tell
4) Gimme Fiction
but they're all bloody great take a pick you won't be disappointed!!!
Girls Can Tell
Kill The Moonlight
Actually it really doesn't matter, they're all good.
that was my first one
then kill the moonlight, ga ga ga ga ga and girls can tell
but you can't go wrong anyway
is where I started and I can't imagine liking them quite so much if I'd started elsewhere but I suppose that's always the case.
but here's one I made earlier...
Gimme Fiction is their most immediate album, but Girls can tell is their best, imho.
i love Spoon, and as people have said above, you can't really go wrong :)
looks like Girls Can Tell is where i'll begin.
That's about it really. Wouldn't bother with the rest.
