''One winner, “First Caress” is disco-rock carved from the rhythmic granite they’ve been employing as a bottom for years now, with an avant-piano meltdown in the middle to gleefully signal Daniel letting loose like he did banging his instrument on the underrated Transference’s calling card “Written in Reverse”. Another surefire hit to join the somewhat undervalued advance singles “Hot Thoughts” and “Can I Sit Next to You” is the stomping “Do I Have to Talk You into It”, which sounds like Nine Inch Nails’ “Closer” if it was arranged by Allen Toussaint. These kinds of guileless bangers fill the first half with appropriately hot beats if not thoughts, simply because Britt Daniel’s never made much of a campaign to let us know what he’s thinking. But he’s sonically spreading his wings like never before; the vibraphone- and steel-drum-flecked “Pink Up” may be the longest Spoon song, and “WhisperI’lllistentohearit” has a goddamn tempo change.

The second half is more dicey, in the sense that it plays like they rolled one. “I Ain’t the One” is a ghostly ballad over a gated Linn drum, “Shotgun” tries for Talking Heads arena-funk but sounds exactly like The Decemberists’ “The Perfect Crime #2”, and final hot thought “Us” is five minutes of instrumental jazz. All of these are fun, surprising left turns for a band to take when they’re trying to get away from themselves"
