That's awesome. They deserve it. For sure.
There is much upset in those comments, they obviously aren't fans.
I'm not sure how, though....but I just may be biased.
...smarmy? really?? that's a new one...
I thought the same! Smarmy haha?! While the only Spoon album I saw on various best of decade’s lists was “Kill the Moonlight” every album they released has been solid and consistent. Even non-Spoon fans should recognize and respect them for that. I do like Radiohead, but I don’t think every album of theirs is great. OK Computer is my favorite. “Kid A” which has topped many, including Rolling Stone’s best of decade list, is just not my favorite. It’s good to see Spoon get recognized for their accomplishments. Anyone who doesn’t like them can shut up.
I personally really like Radiohead, all of their stuff (well, except for Pablo Honey...by far my least fave) but I can understand how Kid A threw people for a loop.
Thing about Spoon is, they don't really have to rely on any kind of gimmicks, they just make amazing, straight-forward, solid music.
Take that, smarmy!
my 2 favorite bands/decades :
50's : the beatles & the idle race
70's : queen & sparks
80's : the cult - gang of four
best band for the nineties : weezer & faith no more
best band 2000's : spoon & the new pornographers
Beatles were in the 60's. And the official lineup of John, Paul, George and Ringo was formed in 62'.....They are the best band in the world, of any decade.
But my other decades
70's - Led Zeppelin, Rolling Stones, Sex Pitols, Ramones, The Clash, ACDC in the 70's with Bon Scott!!! (Best ACDC singer in my opinion) (sorry that's a lot LOVE the 70's)
80's - The Cure, The Smiths and The Cars.
90's - Oasis and Blur. I like Oasis more, but love the battle between them.
00's - Spoon, Arctic Monkeys, and Bright Eyes (Still like Oasis in 00's too)
Oh how could I forget?!?! Solo John Lennon. Plastic Ono band came out in 1970, and is one of my favorite albums of all time. That record is brilliant. "Mama don't Gooooooooooooohoh, daddy come home." Primal scream.
