Album Review :They Want My Soul

Album Review : They Want My Soul
Artist : Spoon
Genre : Rock
Let’s get straight to the point. It is worthy of your time. There is nothing pretentious or the band is trying to pretend that they are rock gods. In the “Rent I Pay,” the first song in this album will already make you stop with what you are doing and attempt to listen to the whole record. The next song “Inside Out” reinforces this attitude and be grateful that this band just want to play and have fun; no preaching through singing.

“Rainy Taxi” is the kind of rock music that you miss all the while; pure sound trip. And the same description that can be said with “Do You.” “Knock, Knock, Knock” is quite a disappointment after hearing four good songs in a row. However, they made it up with “Outlier” which can make you miss suddenly the British band SUEDE. The carrier single “They Want My Soul and Just Don’t Understand” can be considered as homage to The Beatles vocally and musically.

“Let Me Be Mine and New Your Kiss” showcase that this band can do pop and rock at the same time and given the right DJ, this song can worm its way to dance clubs as well. Indeed, this album is worth the money and time. I give this album 4.5 stars out of 5 stars.
