    the best pure rock band of the last 10-15 years

    no one plays with the classic R&R tropes as good as them while still looking fwd without stupid gimmicks

    Transference is my favorite, but Fiction is their masterpiece and already cannon

    breaks my heart that this thread doesn't have 100 pags of replies

    For some reason I thought I had already created a thread. Fiction is really my least favorite though. A Series of Sneaks is really underrated also.

    OK, here we go, a quick guide to Spoon's discography:

    Telephono: Actual (ignored) debut which is cool
    Series of Sneaks: underrated "debut"
    Girls Can Tell: the hidden masterpiece - favorite album of the "real" fan
    Kill the Moonlight: the critical masterpiece
    Gimmie Fiction: their (actual) magnum opus
    GA GA GA GA GA: the oh shit for some reasons I thought Spoon couldn't produce another amazing album album
    Transference: the obtuse, dark album that is secretly, actually their best album, the contrarian album [IN AN ALTERNATE (CRITICAL) NARRATIVE, THEIR FALL FROM GRACE] [ALSO MY FAVORITE]
    They Want My Soul: the this is not even funny, how can a band continue to kick ass in this way after eight LP's album - also, the chart topping single after decades album [IN AN ALTERNATE NARRATIVE, RETURN TO GRACE]

    listen to this band

    I've only listened to their last 2 albums. Really enjoy They Want My Soul. Definitely will be checking out some of their other albums now. Thanks for that discography guide ;)

    I have a real appreciation for this band because before getting into them it had been a long minute since I obsessed with a band with a large discography

    discovering them and going through all their records was a really cool experience that happened (as these things often do) while I was in a very unstable, unpredictable and wild (not in a party-drugs-sex kind of way) moment of my life

    I remember getting a box in the mail with like five Spoon vinyl records and just staying inside all weekend just playing them through and through

    such a fucking sick band

    I am appalled by the indifference of people here

    By the way I completely agree with your discography rundown. I've been listening to this band for 15 years, and they continue to amaze me with each release.

    My favorites:
    Girls Can Tell
    Kill The Moonlight
    Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga
    A Series Of Sneaks

    Also, let's not forget how good the coinciding EP of Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga is, Got Nuffin.

    Man, it sure is nice to have someone to discuss Spoon with.

    formerly known as chill yoshi

    one of the most lowkey consistent bands around

    Transference > Kill the Moonlight > Girls Can Tell > They Want My Soul > Series of Sneaks > Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga > Gimme Fiction > Telephono

    Hailey, It Happens @haileyithappens Supporter

    I still don't think I've heard a full album of theirs, but FUCK do I love "The Underdog"

    really? Dude, go listen to Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga in full. After you finish that, check out Girls Can Tell and Kill The Moonlight. You gotta do this.
  11. Horrorca


    I'd say go for their latest first, then. Kill the Moonlight

    no wrong answers tho

    You actually picked a perfect time to listen to this band.

    I've always liked these guys but They Want My Soul is easily my favorite. Not a bad album from these guys though.

    Regular Supporter

    Transference is the masterpiece.

    Every album is great though. I've never gotten into Fiction as much, but I can't deny how good it is either.

    Yeah Gimme Fiction is their only album I haven't been able to get into as much as the rest.

    made a cool playlist on Spotify some years ago

    I'm not that into playlists but I think this is great - I'll post it tomorrow for all of you (Spotify isn't working now for some reason)

    Girls Can Tell is my favorite but I love everything.

    Transference is definitely the last you should listen to if your just getting into them, the greatness in that one is how they subvert the normal Spoon sound.
