Its like the songwriting from mutations if it was produced like sea change

I’m sure that Conor would totally agree with you about what constitutes a bright eyes fan

Sorry Kilgore trout,

it was a ‘reply fail’ actually.. I meant to reply on Targets comment.

What does it matter when you came to a band? I heard every album they put out within around a month, and I think ‘plans’ has the best melodies, and arrangements (his lyrics are always pretty good).

If anything, your view is warped by having heard the early albums first, and then deciding to dismiss the later albums because they were more popular/maybe you came in with certain expectations for how the later albums should sound, instead of taking them on their own merit.

‘Plans’ should be number 1.. Great songwriting, lyrics and arrangements.

Their early albums sound pretty bland to me, like Elliott Smith, minus the good songs.

This comment makes me smile, because, while I agree Pitseleh is great (although not in my top 10), i remember watching a youtube performance of Elliott’s, where someone called out for him to play it, and he replied… “Pitseleh’s long and boring”… Then he obviously felt bad about saying it, and added something like “but that’s just one opinion”.

This could be awesome.l. Really hope this doesn’t signal the end of Spoon.

handsome Furs/Wolf Parade breaking up was bad enough.

I could definitely hear bono singing ‘Heaven’… Especially the “Remember, Remember” bit… Bu apart from that I don’t think the album is overly U2 influenced

Really? I wonder how big of a role the length and density of 1q84 played in the success of the Hunger Games

Ok…. I’ve actually read all these books (i was getting super bored reading 1Q84 and needed something mindless to break it up)… The first book is page turning, not particularly well written, but a fun, easy book to resd… The 2nd one is pretty much a carbon copy of the first (with a twist!) and the third one was terrible, and sucked all of the fun out of the original concept (also, the ending depressed the hell out of me)
