    Hi all, I'm a long-time fan but new to the board. So if a poll like this has already been before, please excuse the redundancy. But I'd like to see what everyone's favorite Spoon albums are, in order of preference. Giving the #1 favorite 10 points, and the least favorite 1 point, we can add them up and see what our collective favorites are.

    For the 10 albums, I'm considering the 8 LPs, plus Soft Effects and Love Ways, since they are longer than traditional EPs and are more like "mini-albums."

    The only thing I hate about doing lists like this is that some things have to go at the bottom of the list. That doesn't mean I think they suck. I like Transference a lot, and I even think Telephono is great in its own, overdriven, crunchy-guitar way. Without further ado, here's my list from favorite to least favorite:

    1. A Series of Sneaks
    2. Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga
    3. Kill the Moonlight
    4. They Want My Soul
    5. Gimme Fiction
    6. Soft Effects
    7. Girls Can Tell
    8. Transference
    9. Love Ways
    10. Telephono

    Hmm. This is a hard one for me, considering I like to think I love all 8 Spoon albums to pieces equally. BUT, if it was a life or death situation, in which I had to give some idea of preference, it would be as follows:

    1) Girls Can Tell + Telephono (10 points)

    2) Everything else except They Want My Soul (9 points)

    3) They Want My Soul (8 points)

    Sorry, that's as narrow as I can get it. GCT and Telephono are up top because they were the first Spoon albums I listened to in full, and so hold A LOT of nostalgia for me. As for They Want My Soul, I don't dislike it - far from it in fact. I love it to pieces too, and that should give you an indication as to how much I love Spoon albums as a whole. :)
