Customer Reviews


As a longtime Weakerthans fan, I admit to being a little biased, but Provincial could be John K Samson's best work to date. I really appreciate how the album flows - too many artists seem to lose sight of 'the album' as an entity itself. There is not a weak song here, and although I've heard the album a few times already, I am left wanting for more. Get this!

Love it

As a former Winnipegger, these songs remind me of the prairies, Cruise Night especially. Awesome album. The storytelling songs of The Weakerthand won my heart with so I was thrilled to listen to Letter in Icelandic from the Ninette San. Yes, yes, great songs.

great album by that nice guy from winnipeg...

Did you ever have a neighbour who was quiet, nice, had a cat, would help you with the groceries, and just smile when he saw you? Yeah, that's what it feels like when listening to John. This album is amazing, and anyone not familiar with the weakerthans should check them out if they like this album too. Great tunes which give me eerily vivid memories of my hometown, winnipeg, and are catchy enough to be enjoyed by anyone. After listening to this, you'll want to know about cruise night, reggie leach, and where the army surplus is on portage ave. Stop reading and click "purchase"… now!
