Album #17: “Gimme Fiction” — Spoon (2005)
The first time I heard this album, it jumped into my all-time top 20 favorites and stayed there. Which is surprising because, the first time I heard Spoon, on one of their earlier records found in the freebee pile at the paper, I wrote them off and sold it …. guess I wasn’t ready for Brit Daniel’s genius yet. Since then I’ve hunted down everything Spoon has done (no doubt buying back the very record I’d sold years before). Oh the irony.
