So yeah, I've listened to this even more over the past month since it came out again. Spoon is still very good, I'm still very impressed, but it's still no Extraordinary Machine (sorry, mod). And Extraordinary Machine is still no When The Pawn, but that's another thread.
Best tracks? I Summon You and They Never Got You. I Summon You for its chilling lyrics, and They Never Got You for its brilliant instrumental it drifts off into during its final minutes. Very inspiring, that's all I can say about it. Makes you feel like you can do anything, makes you feel like you can fly, and if that's the only thing I could ask of music, that would be it.
The album still has some weak tracks I can't quite forgive. I like them okay, but I almost want to skip them when they come on, which isn't good. Things like Sister Jack, The Infinite Pet, and The Delicate Place should really stay the hell away (though Delicate Place is the most tolerable of those three).
The Beast and Dragon, Adored and The Two Sides of Monsieur Valentine are such a strong opening that those weak tracks can be forgiven. I really love the fantasy fiction theme that seems to be running through this album, and the story told in Monsieur Valentine really elevates that.
I Turn My Camera On and My Mathematical Mind are so catchy, but it's a shame there's no ultimate punch to them. These songs just kind of plateau and never really go anywhere transcendental. They could be better, even though they're very well done as they are. Merchants Of Soul is a good ending, but the album probably should've ended with They Never Got You. Even though it's too good a track to be stuck at the end of the album, it fits because of its powerful instrumental.
