Hopefully they'll play the Northeast and Midwest later this year, but I might have to make arrangements for Atlanta or Kansas City just in case they don't.

Those rankings are determined by the writer and the writer alone! And that list ran before I was on staff anyway. I would need to go back and do some listening to rank the albums, but I really love A Series Of Sneaks. If you'll excuse me once again using a Radiohead comparison, ASOS is like The Bends: It's full of great songs, and it represents a point in time before the band settled into what would become their signature sound. Also, I'm just busting your balls.

Whoa whoa whoa black sheep boy, no real Spoon fan would rank A Series Of Sneaks that low

Despite Bono's messianic tendencies, I didn't get the sense that they believe their music will save the day, just that they're worried about the new album sounding embarrassingly out of touch. Kinda like Metallica's new album post-election, as our own Michael Nelson discussed here.

Close! It's "Doing It Wrong," sampled on the vinyl-only bonus track "Naive." So, same album at least.

January 5, 2017 on Michelle Branch Releasing Comeback Album Co-Written By Patrick Carney
I think that's probably right. One survey shows that age 33 is when people generally stop paying attention to new music, so it makes sense that interest would start to wane around age 30 followed by a few years of ambivalent listening. On the other hand, your friends' disinterest might be attributable to 2016 being such a wack year for pop. Always appreciate your insights!

As the person who wrote our original album rankings, I have some revisions. The original list was before Yeezus and The Life Of Pablo, and it included Cruel Summer (which seems unwise in retrospect, but it was his newest release at the time and those singles go). 1. MBDTF 2. Late Registration 3. Yeezus 4. The College Dropout 5. Graduation 6. Watch The Throne 7. The Life Of Pablo 8. 808s & Heartbreak

"True Love Waits" was the one that destroyed me initially, but as the year wore on I found myself returning to "Daydreaming" most. It's a classic for sure.
