Drowned in Sound

Spoon are a pretty consistent bunch. Consistent in sound and pretty darned consistent in quality. Since their 1996 debut Telephono they have gradually refined the Pixies-indebted indie rock of that record into something simultaneously more pop-savvy and complex with their neat use of production tricks an increasingly distinctive trait. Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga, from 2007, saw Spoon reach their apex in this regard; a record where auditory adventurousness (see 'The Ghost of You

Lingers') and pop nous ('The Underdog') not only sat comfortably side by side, but where the former actually served the needs of the latter, as on the modernised Motown of 'You Got Yr. Cherry Bomb'.

El séptimo disco de Spoon fue quizá el más bajo de su carrera. Después de una seguidilla de muy buenos discos como "Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga" o "Gimme Fiction", "Transference" cuenta con canciones demasiado largas y repetitivas y otras más experimentales que no llegaron a puerto. Uno de los momentos menos inspirados en la historia de la banda.

Canciones Favoritas: Who Makes Your Money, Out Go The Lights.

It's another notable achievement and it's still Spoon.

Not the best album for first impression with Spoon, in fact there are better albums from that band. But when you get into them, Transference gets better and better with every spin. What I love in this album, is that it's stabilized, goes so smoothly. Fav track - Is love forever
