Love, loVE, LOVE this bands music!
"Ga-Ga..." and "Gimme Fiction" are just in constant rotation on my cd player and Ipod.

Does anyone have any feesback on any of their previous five albums? I read that prior to those 5, their original sound (circa 93, '94?) was much more brash and noisy and they honed their sound down to what it is now, and that once they were even compared to Wire.

THIS, to me, is emblematic of an accesible band perpetuating some of the best of rock.

I don't know exactly what you just asked, but if your asking if they're works previous to Gimme Fiction are good, then the answer is yes. Kill The Moonlight could be the best thing they ever did, it's between that and Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga for me. Girls can tell is also very good. I highly recommend you go buy Kill the Moonlight, if you haven't yet.

oh... ha ha ha ha, sorry i don't really look at the post dates good.

What do you think about Spoon Dameon? I Think they should get in, I'm a huge fan of Spoon. Kill the Moonlight was voted one of the best indie albums ever, and it always comes up in "Classic Albums of the 00's" Conversations. Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga was equally as good. What do you think?
