Good to see this great band getting some recognition. But for me this slickly produced record is not as strong as some of their earlier stuff. A well-produced Spoon album somehow defeats the truer purpose of this band for me. I'm missing some of their garage pop energy.All things must pass though, right?

This actually works. Spoon manages to make their sound evolve enough to keep us interested, but they don't deviate from their established sound & formula. It's enough to keep enjoying their output.

Solid album from consistently acclaimed band Spoon who are continuing to make great music after 25 years. "Hot Thoughts" is catchy, multi-layered and unafraid to take risks throughout its entirety. A great listen.

Spoon has usually trended towards much-improved albums each release, fine-tuning their pop sensibilities and articulation throughout the years. I had too high expectations for this, after They Want My Soul, and the improvements haven't scaled to this album. Hot Thoughts isn't what I expected, but it's not bad either. It's not their best release, and it's mostly straight-forward indie.

That said, "Can I Sit Next to You" and "Hot Thoughts" are obvious standouts, but I really enjoy the instrumentals on "Pink Up", and I like "I Ain't the One" for its minimalism and strong vocals. The rest is what you'd expect in a typical Spoon album - catchy beats and fun bouncy guitar rifts.

Pretty straight forward, yet great indie pop album, with Spoon continuing their solid discography.

I love Spoon, but I'm not loving this record. There are no outright bad songs, but after the first track, it takes a nosedive until the super cool "Pink Up," and from then on, it's pretty solid. I'm even a fan of the closer, which is a snazzy experiment if there was one. Otherwise, I'm kinda underwhelmed.

Sonido fresco y sorprendente para una propuesta cuajada de riqueza melódica y rítmica, de esas que te impulsan a mover los pies. Muy bueno.
