    So wow. I really never thought I would see a Greatest Hits album from Spoon. I am happy don't get me wrong. I always wanted one, along with a live album, and I just assumed that would come maybe after the band ends. For a second I thought it was a goodbye from the band. But no, there is work yet to be done. I guess I am that good kind of shocked that John Cougar Mellencamp pined about in "Hurts so Good". Like how can pain feel good John? He elaborated, and then we all understood.

    As time keeps rolling on everything I hold dear wears, tarnishes, and moth consumes it. This band has been making great record after great record. So this a like a breath to celebrate that. If we don't take in moments in our lives they are gone forever people. So enjoy a new Spoon single, and all of us can argue about what songs should have been there, sequencing etc. That's what we do.

    But seriously grateful for years of music, memories and SOUL.

    P.S. Glad Senor Larios is no officially on a recording!!!

    P.S.S. Britt can still shred!!!! \m/

    P.S.S.S. Dude seriously how is "Written in Reverse" not on here? I'll play the game where we have to do singles, heck even commercially released singles that are post "Everything Hits at Once". It is one of the greatest vocals in the band's history. Period. And do you remember how pumped we all were when we heard the teaser, our first glimpse into what would be Transference?!?!?! That alone!!!!!!!! ;P

    Urghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh been anticipating a new album so badly recently. Super disappointed with this news...
    And yeah they really should have left off Got Nuffin and put Written in Reverse or I saw the Light on. I think Got Nuffin and Sister Jack are probably their worst big songs

    Yeah I was looking forward to a new album too, but that doesn't mean we won't get one. If it is not ready or the right time, the wait is worth it. The single is great.

    I personally do like Got Nuffin a lot, I just wished Written in Reverse could have made it as well. Since it is a single. I Saw the Light is a fantastic song, but not a single, or a hit really; it's a great album track I'd say. And while Sister Jack is technically a single, I would not call it a "Spoon Hit". Maybe Beast and Dragon, Adored is a "Spoon Hit" as in a great live staple and a fan favorite, but not for a compilation.

    It's tough fo sho

    Ah yeah now that you say it it is fair that I saw The Light wouldn't make it....Even if it is one of their best. It seems like 'Everything Hits at Once' is the fan favourite song on it which makes sense. Judging by the press release for the single it does seem like we won't be waiting too long for an album! Argh I never got Got Nuffin in transference, it seems so out of place in the album.

    I think they picked good choices. Obviously everyone is going to have their picks. There was a good interview from yesterday put out by theringer.com that Britt discusses the selection process. He also says it's more of a marketing approach so I can why they chose songs that have had more commercial success. The purpose is to attract more listeners. Us die hard fans can just go on Spotify, queue up this list and there's no need to wait for the July 26th release date.

    Both Transference and Got Nuffin took me forever to get into but Transference is my most played album and Got Nuffin my #5 played Spoon track. I love the hook, "I feel like a king, it feels like I'm dreaming."

    As for the new song. I think it's perfect and it's exactly the direction I was hoping they would take. I enjoyed them dabbling in a more keyboard/synth approach but had missed the crashing guitars. And Britt's solo on this is awesome. I think they're doing a record and I think it'll be out by the end of year.

    @Doc Yeah I heard. Very weird unexpected news.

    @Joe I love Got Nuffin. I love Transference, but can see why people didn't get into it immediately. It's a grower for sure. But when I think Spoon, or to play Spoon for Someone "Written in Reverse" is one of the first I play them. 1. I Turn My Camera On 2. Written in Reverse 3. The Underdog
