You've probably heard Spoon even if you don't know it. "That's the way we get by" seems to permanently soundtrack certain American dramas like the OC. Similarly amongst your extended friends somewhere there will be a Spoon fanatic (a rare beast I admit although not in America) telling you that this Texan combo are greatest and most underrated band in the world!

Spoon form a central part of the renaissance of music coming out of Texas over the past decade which includes bands as varied as Mountain Goats, Lift to Experience, At the Drive In, Midlake and White Denim. Centred on the core personal of Britt Daniels who recently produced the excellent White Rabbits album "Its Frightening" (reviewed elsewhere) and Jim Eno, the gents from Spoon have been around for quite a time and deserve wider recognition in dear old Blighty.

Since their excellent breakout album "Gimme Fiction" through to 2007's "Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga" the band started to become more commercial but never dull or boring. Indeed "Ga Ga" contained superb songs like the Motown influenced "You got yr cherry bomb" the funky "Finer Feelings" and the dual poptasticness of "Don't you evah" and "The Underdog". But for many Spoon fans that was a problem, Cries of "sell out" and "gone mainstream" followed and it had to said that some "edge" had gone from the band.

"Transference" the bands seventh LP is in contrast is a much more spikey and clipped album. It is rock music and not pop music and a much darker beast than its predecessor. I could hear the Stones playing "Writing in Reverse" with its guitar riff and dirty bar room piano. Even the most commercial song on here "Got Nuffin" is a ragged, bitter and twisted little number but not really designed to trouble the charts.

There's just something about Spoon that grabs you and you want to listen over and over. Really interesting and catchy tunes and a completely original sound No collection is complete without at least a couple of Spoons albums.

Accessible tunes but still quirky enough to stand out as a very good CD. Even better than the last with more consistently better tunes. No duffers.

New to Spoon. Now have all eight CDs and one EP, all good. One band that, given their output, I don't know how I missed.

Sounds like - later stuff, up to date Squeeze (East Side Story) with an American twist. Earlier stuff, elements of Beck - with more melody.

Off-band - Divine Fits, (some Spoon members) equally overlooked!?!

Now checking out Wolf Parade - sounds like - Arcade Fire done by Squeeze.... which ain't going to happen, so totally original.

There's a common element here (Britt Daniel)..... Jack White isn't alone.
