    That was a good review, and I'm glad they didn't make this one so "glittery" and went on to mix hi and lo-fi vibes. It's a great album that is sometimes haunting.

    Yeah, that's what I thought as well. The only downside of the album is that it relies so heavily on production nuances that it's hard to reproduce live. I saw them the other day at Waterloo Records and a lot of the songs didn't carry over extremely well live.

    I really liked that review. I was at the waterloo show as well, but I feel like the songs were closer to the studio version then some of their more complex songs from past albums usually are.

    I really wish that critics would stop quoting lyrics, because about 2 out of 3 times, they're usually wrong.
    ...permanently loud? really?

    Hey pfista,

    Yeah, I agree. In terms of Spoon shows, the waterloo show was one of the better ones I've seen (especially considering it was free!). They did do a comparatively good job of reproducing Transference live—I still remember the awfulness of Spoon's live performance of Paper Tiger back in 2004, a great song that didn't translate at all! I love the creativity of their recordings, but sometimes their attempts to faithfully reproduce the album really seem to hamper there live performances.

    nefarious, I thought the same think :) .

    I remember seeing Spoon for the first time live at warehouse live in Houston. I had only listened to maybe three of their albums at that point, and the first song they played was Utilitarian (which I had never heard). And it was so amazing. I actually just found a video of that exact concert and song: watch (i was in the very front). I saw the light at that point and have loved spoon non-stop since then. I saw spoon again at stubbs 7/10/09. And my latest was the free waterloo show. I really want to see them at SXSW this year but I feel like that isn't going to happen. Do you have to buy sxsw tickets, or will they have separate ones for that show?

    I was at that Warehouse Live show, too! Incredible performance, great crowd. Can't wait for them to hit H-Town again.
