Kill The Moonlight has amazing tracks. Each track has it's own significant sound that gets better with each listen. Britt Daniel has a great voice and it sounds a lot more different than any other Spoon album. The tracks are catchy and some of the synth beats are wonderful. All In All, Kill The Moonlight is an impeccable album. A Full Review »

This album is natural, clean, sleek, powerful, and quite accessible. Although the guitars on this record aren't quite as dynamic as they were in Girls Can Tell, they are balanced with other aspects of production, and everything is executed flawlessly. Track by track, this album delivers amazing quality, and absolutely nothing to dislike. This is one of my few, if not only ten out of ten album. Sure it isn't a revolutionary album, sure it is simple, and almost shows some minimalism, but it is what a perfect album should be. You know it when you find it, and not everyone has the same one. This is Spoon's best album in an ultimately impressive discography. Full Review »
