iTunes Review

Spoon’s fourth album finds the indie rock stalwarts distilling their strengths—atmospheric effects, spidery guitars, impressionistic lyrics—into a perfectly streamlined package. Frontman Britt Daniel is as enigmatic and evocative as ever, conjuring a tender love affair over the flickering chords of “Paper Tiger” and drawing on rangy, looping piano to channel youthful anomie on “The Way We Get By.” Simultaneously spare and sonically dense, romantic and reserved, percussive and sweetly melodic, Kill the Moonlight is a testament to using minimalism for maximum effect.

Customer Reviews

Holy crap this is good.

Seriously good indie rock. It's as if The Who and The White Stripes had a mutant baby, which they then sent to grow up with an aunt in Texas.

A VERY good time

Spoon's Kill the Moonlight is one heck of an album. It's an all around good time with some extremely good tracks. Stay Don't Go and The Way We Get By are someof the easier to get into, while the deeply saturating Paper Tiger really gets one emotional. But talk about a great album to listen to when your trying not to Let It Get You Down. Spoon's Moonlight is a thorough album, with 5-star quality tracks through-out. Just want a few? Get Stay Dont Go, Don't Let It Get You Down, and Back to the Life -- fun songs, fun album. Check it out

Worth Every Penny

Intelligent, minimalist sounds make this one of my favorite albums of all time. Anyone who enjoys indie rock or pop will probably enjoy this. If you don't want to buy the whole thing, my two picks for favorite tracks are Paper Tiger and The Way We Get By.


Formed: 1994 in Austin, TX

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...
