iTunes Review

Spoon’s eighth album, 2010’s Transference, alters their attack ever so slightly. Less lush than their 2007 breakthrough hit Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga, there’s still plenty of sublime pop lurking in this duo (plus others). “The Mystery Zone” crackles like a hit single in waiting, the pianos coasting to the surface as the song swells from its sparse beginnings. Spoon are masters of mood and dynamic. The album’s core, beginning with “Who Makes Your Money” and working through “Trouble Comes Running,” makes for a revisit towards the terse pop one finds on Joe Jackson’s I’m the Man with the additional tonal colors one expects from Brian Eno. After four substantial albums released in the past decade, Spoon show no sign of losing their sound or soul. “Written In Reverse” jams forth with a street-tough walk. “Goodnight Laura” delivers a welcome but unexpected piano ballad. It’s called being “in the zone” and Spoon are there showing off their formidable skills.

A warm hug for the cold winter month of January.

All though not as strong as "Kill The Moonlight" or "Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga", it does rank third in their discography. This is impressive as Spoon is a prolific band who has released a lot of material over the last ten.

What I like about "Transference" is the smooth transitions between the songs as they seamlessly weave into one another making for a rather satisfactory album. The band uses all their familiar sounds but blends in new textures.

With only three weeks into 2010, we can already enjoy new music by "Vampire Weekend" and now "Spoon" makes this year that much better!

spoonfuls of musical excellence!

!!!album this love I reverse in you to this write I’ll

In my opinion the best songs are the mystery zone, goodnight laura, got nuffin, before destruction, and of course written in reverse :)


It's not their usual and they certainly are experimenting with new sounds. Personally I like the old sound.


Formed: 1994 in Austin, TX

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

With a heady blend of precision punk and serpentine classic rock (the band has drawn comparisons to everyone from the Pixies and Sonic Youth to Elvis Costello and Tom Petty), Texas-based indie outfit Spoon went from underground press darlings to one of the genre's most critically acclaimed acts. Formed in Austin by singer/guitarist Britt Daniel and drummer Jim Eno, Spoon released its debut EP, Nefarious, on the small Texas imprint Fluffer Records in 1994, eventually re-recording three of the songs...
