  1. The album has an energy both attractive and intimidating.
  2. While any given song on the album contains a memorable melodic passage or a compelling idea, some of them are more mixed in their results.
  3. Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga sees Britt Daniels channelling his persecution complex into more piano-driven 60s pop songs, screaming "Don't make me a target!" at the heavens as his girlfriend walks out. His band prove surprisingly versatile.
  4. It's not the best album of Spoon's career, but it's far from a misstep.

While some may say that Spoon's best is "Kill the Moonlight" or "Girls Can Tell", it's really this album that is their finest. Full Review »
