Editors’ Notes

How exactly does Spoon do it? Their music overflows with invention, but never sounds cluttered or labored. It’s ambitious and intricate, yet immediately accessible. It’s sarcastic and cheeky, but often soulful and substantive. That Britt Daniel and company are able to pull off this trick is cause for celebration, but their ability to do it so consistently and, it would seem, so effortlessly, is reason for awe. Once again representing all that is good about indie rock — enthusiasm, intelligence, creativity, integrity — Spoon offers, like clockwork, 10 nearly perfect songs in 36 nearly perfect minutes. Daniel’s lyrics, still as cock-eyed as they are pithy, continue to explore the corridors between love and loneliness, evident on the infectious pop-soul of “You Got Yr. Cherry Bomb,” the dub-crazy clank of “Eddie’s Ragga,” and the bittersweet folk-rock of “Black Like Me.” Occasionally, however, he looks beyond his own heart. On “The Underdog,” for example, a buoyant mini-anthem powered by bright acoustic guitars and punchy horns, Daniel’s message to “the haves” is succinct and unswerving: “You got no fear of the underdog, that’s why you will not survive.” Six albums down the line, Spoon’s finely crafted songs and sonic ingenuity still astound.

Customer Reviews

Rock & Awe

With the release of "Gimme Fiction" in 2005, I was convinced Spoon had made their masterpiece. It was the perfect combination of previously established elements: the sketch-like song structure and wild experimentation of 2002's "Kill the Moonlight" coupled with the flat-out cathartic pop of 2001's "Girls Can Tell." The songs (penned by vocalist/guitarist Britt Daniel) were simple and direct, yet imbued with an intensity of emotion not often found in modern music (or at least not as genuinely). The record was Daniel's shining moment as a songwriter; his definitive musical statement, one I thought he'd struggle to re-create throughout the rest of his sure to be long career. I never dreamt in a million years that he'd somehow surpass it. Especially on the follow up album. "Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga" is that culmination, a record of monumental emotional depth that also manages to genuinely rock. While listening to tracks like the Jon Brion produced "The Underdog," it's apparent that Spoon is yet again breaking new ground, opening up their sound and exploring new territory while still adhering to the tried and true "Spoon" philosophy: simple and direct song-writing that packs an emotional punch. If you're tired of the vacuous music populating today's airwaves then give "Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga" a spin. You won't be disappointed.

Undoubtably 2007's Best Record Yet...

Beautifully produced and tastefully mixed; while everyone else still somehow get caught up in the usual studio bombast, Spoon continue to treat record-making as high art, treating the ears of the discerning listener and laying the gauntlet to other artists as something to truly aspire toward. Listen with a good set of headphones.

1st Review!

This album is solid. It has a bunch of very listenable toe-tappers like Cherry Bomb, Underdog, Finer Feelings, and Japanese Cigarette Case that make it a very accessible and enjoyable album. Then there are a few tracks that are a little different, like Ghost, that change up the tembo a bit (by the way, this song really reminded me of Sound Team for some reason). The album does, however, sound too commercial at times, making one long for Spoon's early days. There are some new things though, like the addition of some more instruments, that separate it from Gimme Fiction.


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), enigmatic, Texas-based indie pop outfit Spoon went from underground press darlings to one of the genre's premier commercially and critically acclaimed alternative rock 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...
