Product Overview

With a history of stellar records, Spoon has topped themselves with Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga, a thrilling album recorded throughout 2006 in Austin by the band and Mike McCarthy (except "The Underdog," recorded in Los Angeles with Jon Brion). The Britt Daniel originals on Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga comprise possibly his most heartfelt batch of songs since 2001's Girls Can Tell.

It's worth pointing out that Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga is comprised of ten songs, the perfect number of songs for an album (see Fulfillingness' First Finale, Seventeen Seconds, Back in Black, The Queen is Dead, The Charm of the Highway Strip, Nebraska, Nashville Skyline, Heroes, Unknown Pleasures, The Violent Femmes, The Woods, Sticky Fingers, etc.). We've also got it on good authority that 36 minutes is the ideal album length.

Review A further step from the rockin' tendencies of 2001's breakout, Girls Can Tell, and some of the darker bits of their last, Gimme Fiction, Ga(x5) has tremendous range, showing a band as careful with experimentation as with generic reconstruction--perhaps owing to Daniel's experience last year writing music for the film Stranger Than Fiction...This album's calling card is likely to be the Jon Brion-produced "The Underdog," a raucous summer camp sing-along with a Doobie Brothers cadence and Big Bertha horn section; it's possibly the most powerful (almost) acoustic track in recent memory. It's also a likely candidate for "Offical Spoon Anthem," its lyrics calling out the destruction of those with "no fear of the underdog" with no small amount of relish. It's a good play, the right play even, showing a band who--adult as they may be--are in no mood to be pushovers or played out has-beens. And who wouldn't chomp a veggie burger to that?

Quotes
CokeMachineGlow ...the album of this year and maybe of the next.
Entertainment Weekly ...collates and refines everything that came before. But what an inventory of sounds they've built.
Tiny Mix Tapes ...fills me with a happiness rarely delivered in a genre filled with groups that never improve upon their debuts.
