The album is out today!
I got my vinyl copy on Friday, and have been listening for five days straight.
Here are my first thoughts:
Let me start off saying this, this is not a Spoon album. However, if you are a Spoon fan you will like this album.
I love the variety of songs, and instruments. This album has a lot of synths, there usually is not many on a Spoon album. The album has a great flow and I like the sequencing a lot, I think it is perfect. Sometimes I disagree with sequencing on Spoon albums .
Britt's voice sounds as good as ever. I like Dan's voice a lot too, I like the trade off on vocals. I really really love Britt's voice on "Shivers" it is a cover, the song was written by Roland Howard, who was in various projects with Nick Cave. Britt's voice literally gave me shivers the first time I heard it. The song took me by surprise.
It's followed by a song called "Like Ice Cream". It's a very cool rock song. Perfect for the end of summer. This song to me is the most "Spoon sounding" song.
I don't really have time to write a track by track review right now. Maybe later?
I hope you guys get it and enjoy it.
Let me know what you think.
