Spoon - Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga
I just did a great write up about this record and then my fucking computer froze. Awesome. I'll just give you the abridged version. I'm not a huge Spoon fan but I loved 2002's Kill The Moonlight, and there's no denying that these guys can write some catchy little indie pop songs. I'm also pretty sure that they sold about a bazillion iPods and Volvos after all of the commercials that used their music last year. Aside from having the worst album title ever, there isn't much to complain about here. At the same time, it doesn't seem like the band has really grown all that much either. At least they were smart enough to ditch the stupid string arrangements that bogged down their last record, Gimme Fiction. There's some cool horn parts and a little mandolin, but really Spoon doesn't pull too many punches. Whether that is good or bad is up to you.
