Spoon strip down a little bit with Transference, keeping only the bare essentials that make up their appealing sound. This results in a great album that continues to define them as one of the sexiest bands around. The way that Britt Daniel articulates certain words in connection to the crisp guitar work is one of the many aspects that make Spoon unique. Transference is certainly not their best work, I would place Kill The Moonlight and Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga above it. However while this record is not a huge step forward it is in no way a step back. This record shows more than anything the band's consistency. Their ability to produce one solid record after another authenticates Spoon's talent. Of course there are some tracks that particularly stand above others. Whether it be the trail-blazing rocker "Got Nuffin" or the piano banging "Written in Reverse" This album has an array of subtly different tracks that will please your earbuds. One track in particular that I love is "Who Makes Your Money." This song has a different pace to it that I don't believe this band has explored before. The slow but solid drum beat with the rolling muted bass tones is the perfect accompaniment Daniel's reverb-tinged voice. I've listened to this disc several times now, and for some reason that is the track I revisit most. Quite simply, Transference is another exemplary release by Spoon that will fit nicely in their already dignified catalogue.
