Spoon Gimme Fiction Vinyl LP

Spoon makes some of the most artful and confident rock 'n' roll of any group around. The band's fifth full-length is nothing short of a dizzying, soulful masterpiece, easily the most expansive work in their career, an exhilarating album of keenly focused artistic vision and ambition.

"Gimme Fiction is actually a wildly diverse album, almost schizophrenic in its composition, vacillating between acoustic ballads, a bubbly, synth-tinged number ("They Never Got You"), handclaps, strings, and a whole lot of blue-eyed soul. It feels like rock action only because the album's finest moments-- for the most part-- are in the sublime climaxes of guitar-driven tunes, notably the heart-swelling, tambourine-ringing relief of "Sister Jack" or the beautifully spare "I Summon You".

But calling them "rock songs" feels like an oversimplification: The term implies a simplicity that just isn't present even in the most direct offerings on Gimme Fiction." --Eric Carr, Pitchfork, May 9, 2005
