just to get one thing straight: KIll The Moonlight is not only the best Spoon record, it’s literally a career-defining effort. maybe you have to be a musician to recognize the unique artistry and craftsmanship that went into this record. sure they touched upon it with Girls Can Tell, but they perfected it with Kill The Moonlight. anything else at the top of this list is purely personal taste and that should never get in the way of a good writer. c’mon Stereogum. I thought you were cooler than this

man! my friends Uncle charlie was right! Alice in Chains does RULE!!! even though he was twice divorced. those women were bitches anyway. well at least that’s what he said. he also used to say ‘down in a hole’ was about FUCKIN’ !!! and “rooster” was about COCAINE!!! COOL. UNCLE CHARLIE YOU RASCAL!!!! man i remember the time he came to our halloween party when i was 17. he was 32 but i guess it turns out he was cool all along cause man did he love AIC. he was dressed up as a burger king employee!!! He had the same uniform he wore when he was a teenager!!! weird 70′s hat and all! he used to talk about the two part harmonies of cantrell and staley… “them boys have better voices than those faggots with aqua net hair dos and pussy lyrics!” RIGHT ON UNCLE CHARLIE!!!! i used to think Alice in Chains was some of the most hackneyed contrived garbage i ever heard. but thank god for uncle charlie. and all the apologists at stereogum. rock on! no excuses that i know!
