    [10] Each song on this record is perfectly refined to an unbelievable extent. 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. Expand

    One of the best pop rock records of the past decade. This was a huge turning point for Spoon commercially and creatively. Kill The Moonlight was Spoon's Kid A.

    A near flaw-less album. 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

    Spoon is probably one of the best bands around today. The music is simple but deep, and actually gets better the more you listen to it. My favorite song would have to be The Way We Get By, but almost every other song is good too.

    Singer-songwriter Britt Daniel's gift for obtuse yet engaging melody is now where it ought to be: up front. [#9, p.155]
  2. Meticulously choppy and frequently free of inherent genre boundaries, it's an askew masterpiece of brains, brawn, heart, and soul.

    Spoon's secret is that this tension is never quite released, the martial beat never breaks down, full rock music never quite kicks in. [Oct 2002, p.120]
