Spoon - A Series Of Sneaks

Hosted by

I can honestly say that, (at least since I started doing this site) this is the only band that as soon as I heard the opening track -my ears pricked up: I was affected instantly. The music, the voice. The guitars.
Do you like electric guitar music?
Do you like that sound of many guitars harmonising and (sometimes) screeching from your stereo to your ears to the back of your brain?!
They are skilled at writing catchy guitar riffs which then become catchy songs and they just love to use the old repetitive, layered, build-up method of engraving that song on your mind forever. Like the track 'June's Foreign Spell' which starts off with a thumping drumbeat, layered guitars and cymbals and then you are off when the vocals come in, unstoppable. It ends with the same drumbeat and cymbal that by that time, starts to feel almost climactic. You don't want the song to end. Brilliant.
I may have lived in a bubble for too long but I am quite amazed these lot haven't gone mainstream.The Lead Singer, Britt Daniel sings in a way that is right from the heart. The songs on this album just get better and better and it is one of those that, when it reaches the last track you just have to put it on repeat. This is their second Album (1998). I never heard the first(Telephono [1996]) and will be looking to upload it when I get it so watch this space. For now, have a listen to this one and look forward to hearing the one they released after that which I will provide tomorrow.
I wonder what I did before I discovered Spoon.

... and, as good as this is, it is definitely the weakest album in their canon. Seek out "Girls Can Tell", the slightly more commercial "Kill The Moonlight" and their latest, "Gimme Fiction". The latter is definitely a contender with Brendan Benson for album of the year so far.

Yeah I do agree with you there asOI heard their latest one first and it's my favourite. Ive now got the others, except their first, but I still prefer the most recent.
Great album indeed from a great band.

Ever considered using something other than rar files? I only ask because for the past few months, every single .rar file I've downloaded from [RS] has been corrupted (unexpected end of file), and that sucks :(

Sorry but RAR is THE best way to go. That is why it is used so much!
I can only think it is a problem with your connection or setup as it is uncommon to get that error with the majority of files you download. If you use a modem then consider getting the GAIN increased by you TEL company. If not then I don't know what to suggest other than redownloading which I know is a real pain.
