Daniel used to make sound effects for videogames, and that talent for evocative sound pockmarks the album. Spoon are at their absolute best when they ratchet up this experimentation. They make up for it with their best song to date. A wonderful harp solo and ethereal trails of twinkling sound add the gilt edging to an exquisite portrait. This album should finally ensure he never has to resort to that. The beautiful part about being in a band is doing shows and making music, and being absorbed by music. Competition was where my head was at for a while. So we said we should just go away for a while.
I suggested the band that they get together and make some music without me, that I could sing on top of, and they came up with some great stuff. Outlier, that was started by Jim and Eric, and as soon as I heard it I thought: this is fucking great — can I put some vocals on top of it? With Inside Out, we had a [demo] track that was me singing on top of an 8-note toy piano — I was in this phase where I was obsessed with Dr Dre, so this is our interpretation of him, basically.
Spoon Destroy Their Sound to Save It on Triumphant ‘They Want My Soul’
I have this attraction to melancholy in music, the bitter longing in songs — on Inside Out, the chord changes alone evoke that. You worked with outside producers for the first time. Recent Morrissey producer Joe Chiccarelli is a very pro, old-school producer, a traditional rock producer.
We had too many disagreements with him about what the big picture should be — we wanted something a little bit weirder, less traditional. So we had to make a switch. What were you writing about lyrically this time round? Some of the criticisms I've seen have been more the result of comparing this album to the other greats Spoon have cranked out. I don't know Some of the criticisms I've seen have been more the result of comparing this album to the other greats Spoon have cranked out. I don't know why anyone would care.

Spoon: They Want My Soul review – a beautifully made, multi-layered album
This album's pretty damn great. Okay, first: anyone who says this is better than Kill the Moonlight or Girls Can Tell needs to have his or her head examined. I've been Okay, first: anyone who says this is better than Kill the Moonlight or Girls Can Tell needs to have his or her head examined. I've been listening to Spoon for a long time. At this point in their career they're obviously exploring new territory.
To be honest, the strongest tracks on this album are the ones that sound like pre-Transference Spoon. On the whole, this album is forgettable. Essential Links. By Metascore By user score.

Come to think of it, I really liked most of the songs on this album on the first listen. They are just really good, yet very accessible. The production also impressed me. Everything seems to be mixed well and nothing is really out of place, even in Inside Out considering that's not really a normal thing for them.
All in all, I really liked it. It's definitely my favorite album by Spoon so far. Damn, I think this may actually by my favorite Spoon album. I strongly disagree with any allegations of Spoon being past their prime. Spoon has just been so consistently excellent for so long, that different areas of the band's discography are bound to resonate differently with different people.
Some people may think that Girls Can Tell or Kill the Moonlight are the best thing the band has ever done, and there are good arguments to be made there, but there are just as many arguments that can be made on behalf of the more recent albums.
Album Review: Spoon - They Want My Soul / Releases / Releases // Drowned In Sound
I think it's really just a matter of taste. It's exactly the album I wanted Spoon to make at this point. Nothing bad, but not amazing. There are a few good songs, but despite being the same length as most of their other albums it felt like it was over very quickly while the others tend to linger and feel longer than their running time in a good way. They're still good, but not as good as they used to be. Ted Leo is in roughly the same place after two merely solid, but unimpressive albums and now a long bout of side projects. I feel like whatever Spoon album you listen to the most, that's the one that will be your favorite.
That is a great observation. Cake Day. Looks like you're using new Reddit on an old browser.
Is the band past their prime? They're still just that good, and it weird critics out. It has turned me onto not only the songs on this album, but more songs from their discography like Finer Feelings I would say my favorite song on this new album is Inside Out because of how different it feels compared to the other songs.
