Have you got 40-minutes to spare, brothah? “But, as with most of Spoon’s work, Transference‘s genius lies in what isn’t said. If the songs lack obvious sonic adventure, they more than compensate with flawless execution and an unshakable sense that something darker or more mysterious is lurking beneath the glittering riffs and poppy beats. [Britt] Daniel and company know that art is more compelling when it plays with the audience’s imagination. In the case of Spoon, that exercise in restraint makes Transference memorable and alluring.”
As good an excuse as any to go and listen to what could be 2010’s album to remember over at NPR.
