Spoon has long been a band that I have really wanted to like, but never have. I know, I know . . .that is probably some sort of indie rock heresy, but its true. (Speaking of heresy . . . go check out Maritime's new album Heresy and the Hotel Choir . . . I'll blog about that later). However, seeing as Rob Pope (of The Get Up Kids fame) is now playing bass with them, I decided to check out their new, and highly acclaimed, album Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga. And, much to my pleasure, I loved it.
