Britt Daniels and cohorts apocolyptically prepare passionate romantics towards felicity in this seldom purchased and puzzeling to percieve work. Lights go on, lights go off - do you wonder where the room comes from / goes to? Spoon answers this question with vague threats towards our voyeuristic older generations. An album that has delighted some to madness: Transference!

  • I love this album.
  • criminally underrated [2]
  • criminally underrated
  • not my fave of theirs, still love it to bits.
  • destined to be looked back upon as Spoon's 'mature' classic record
  • this album just grows by every listen. it's rapidly approaching geniusness.
  • The first Spoon tune I heard was Written in Reverse, although I didn't know who it was at the time, as the radio announcer didn't say. It was several months later that I found out, and heard more of their stuff, when they appeared on Austin City Limits. I immediately bought Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga, then this album. Now, I've got them all. I'm hooked. I haven't heard something this fresh since Elvis Costello & the Attractions (back in the day).
  • I agree that this is not their best moment but it's Spoon here - the quality bar is still pretty high.
  • Always brilliant.
  • This just seems so tame compared to how Kill the Moonlight or Sneaks smacks you in the face. Even Gimme Fiction, which seems to have one foot in the pop rock door (where Franz Ferdinand et al were), adds such a spin to the music. Transference just seems kind of straightfaced... not that the result is bad music or anything.
