Baby's first words

How appropriate that Spoon's Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga came early just like Zane did. Both are stripped-down crowd-pleasers that you only grow more fond of over time. And both obviously have a similar vocabulary (at least in title.) This effort is far more acoustic-based then past efforts, and the punctuating rhythms that acoustic steel strings offer are the key to the effectiveness of a lot of the stronger songs, like "The Underdog" and "Rhthm & Soul." The other highlights we're sure to hear on tv in ads and series include "Don't Make Me a Target," "Don't You Evah" and "Finer Feelings."

Album: Spoon Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga

Time will tell if it surpasses past efforts, but like a new baby, it's Spoon's latest, and you can't call it anything but special.
