Where's the best place to start?
But for reals, Kill the Moonlight, then Grils can Tell, then Gimme Fiction, then Gagagagaga.
I should have seen that response coming, thanks I'll give them a listen
of the last four are great places to start
or My Mathematical Mind or They Never Got You and you will be hooked and want to check out everything else they have ever done
For my money:
Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga>Kill The Moonlight>Gimme Fiction>Series Of Sneaks>Girls Can Tell>Telephono
I feel bad having Telephono last as I don't think these chaps have made a bad album yet
by them is girls can tell
everything hits at once is a great track
...most people keep theirs in a drawer, maybe next to the sink. Try there.
Ga Ga Ga...., Gimme Fiction are tops. Kill the Moonlight too. Not so familiar with the others.
This made it harder for me to get into their earlier stuff for some reason.
I saw them at Night and DAy a few years back and was SO disappointed with them as a live band, postiviley bored and at this point I was big into them. I don't know; maybe it was just a bad day for them. What does everyone else think?
but yeah I remember being sorta underwhelmed when I saw them, too.
Haven't seen them as a full ensemble, though.
I personally started with Kill the Moonlight, then got to Gimme Fiction, and then Ga^5. I have yet to try on their older stuff; they're one of those bands that I got complacent with on first listen, and just updated when they put something new out. I've yet to hear anything pre-Yankee Hotel Foxtrot for Wilco, for instance.
Sad but true.
is well worth hearing too, I didn't like the earlier ones all that much.
Spoon are the best reviewed act of the decade!
I think Ga x 5 and Kill the Moonlight are the best ones. Both are fantastic. New one out soon too.
