Spoon Gimme Fiction is 10

2005's Gimme Fiction may have been Spoon's fifth album, but it was my introduction to their power pop brilliance. It's been 10 years since this great album was unleashed. The sparse yet intricate arrangements, building intertwining riffs with sometimes traditional and sometimes off-kilter phrasing and structures, are at once unique and accessible, and quintessentially Spoon.

Enjoy some of my favourite tunes from this album:

"I Turn My Camera On

"Sister Jack"

"The Two Sides of Monsieur Valentine"

"They Never Got You"

"My Mathematical Mind"
