"The most consistent alt-rock band of the past couple of decades delivers another winner: a perfect balance of smart, weird and wild."
~ROLLING STONE "Buy These Now" 2/18/10

"An album that stomps around, rolls gently over you, and kisses you off sharply after churning you through the gears of a mangled piano." ~EXCLAIM! ... Read more in Amazon's Spoon Store

Product Description

This is a great, understated album that merits repeated plays. Spoon have made a literate, rocking, breakthrough record that occupies a funny place--the songs are not unconventional, per se, yet they're somehow really special. Girls Can Tell displays the emotional resonance and big rock power of, say, Thin Lizzy and Mott The Hoople; the sonically referential, indie-rock smarts of a band like Versus; and amazing hooks that recall Colin Blunstone of the Zombies. Like the Lilys, this Austin, TX trio has chosen to work on perfecting their craft without paying much heed to mainstream or trends. In spite of (but mostly because of) wrenching break-up-centered lyrical material delivered in a very real, matter-of-fact way, Girls Can Tell is one of those life-affirming pop albums you'll return to in years to come. --Mike McGonigal

This is the best album of the year. It's been nearly three years since Spoon's last album, A Series of Sneaks, rocked heads and broke hearts, and even though the band was without a label for most of that time, they forged ahead with the writing and recording of Girls Can Tell anyway. It's a worrying thought that this record nearly didn't see the light of day. Britt Daniel's breathless stuttering, the jarring fuzz riffs that tear apart the choruses. Strokes, White Stripes forget it. This is it.

I saw Spoon play one of their first shows in 1993 at The Sun Tint Warehouse. At the time they sounded like a Pixies rip off band. As a result I pretty much ignored them as they released various singles and albums over the years. My opinion changed when a friend threw on "Girls Can Tell" one evening. The album is spot on excellent! I agree with another reviewer who said that this record rivals The Strokes album. There are many tight,groovy and straight forward rock songs. "Lines in a suit" and "The fitted shirt" are top numbers. My favorite is "Chicago at Night" which is just as smooth as can be.
Brit Daniels is also a really nice guy.
