Hunger TV asked Britt Daniel what Alex Fischel from Divine Fits, now playing with Spoon, brought to the sound of the band. Daniel explained: "First of all he's a really funny guy and fun dude to hang out with - he's kind of a wild man on stage - which I knew from playing with him in Divine Fits. But in terms of the record and sound - he can solo - so there are a few solos. You know that song 'Inside Out' has three solos in it? There's real instrumental vibes. I think that's my favorite one. If Alex weren't in the band it would have had a totally different feel. The song started out with me playing eighth note piano - very, very basic - just piano and vocal and although that was really good it just wouldn't have been half or even a quarter as good as it has ended up being."
