Editors’ Notes

Her second solo album, Let It Die, was the surprise hit of 2005, winning the Canadian Juno Award for Best Alternative Album and its creator Leslie Feist the Best New Artist Award. No longer flying under the radar, this Canadian songstress wrote the follow-up in the Canary Islands and Berlin before settling into a 200 year-old manor house on the outskirts of Paris for two weeks of recording. While The Reminder lacks the element of surprise of its predecessor, it delivers on her talents. It’s stylistically all over the map, with a rotating set of musicians providing different approaches. Traces of Philly Soul inform the Gonzalez (her producer and musical collaborator) co-write “Limit to Your Love,” while the ghost of Dusty Springfield is felt on the Sally Seltmann co-write “1 2 3 4.” “The Park” is a sparse, affecting ballad that uses her sweet range for maximum effect, as “Intuition” uses a similar minimalist palette that wraps up with spiritual incantations. Though Feist’s natural phrasings lean towards bluesy-torch material, she can turn it on for the dancefloor with the upbeat “I Feel It All” just as easily.

Customer Reviews

Reminder: Hype Killed The Indie Star

Poor, lucky Leslie. Cover feature in the NYT, awesome review on Pitchfork, darling indie daughter of ours. This is good record, maybe even a very good record. But it doesn't even come close to matching the hype. Somehow the record fails to connect. Despite the songs of loss and love, it feels too distant, too cautious. I wish Feist would have let her guard down some more. It just seems a bit too calculated for my taste.

Standing Approval

This album is a knock out. Feist has always been able to capture a moment, but she truly exemplifies the beauty of music and soul in this album. If you havn't heard it, buy the album, it is worth every last cent. Feist truly expresses her voice in this album too, not letting background music or tunes to muffle her gorgeous voice. She has created a perfect balance between harmony and happiness in every track on this album. Songs like '1234' and 'My Moon My Man' will blow you away, the music is real, down to earth and eloquent. Your heart can float away on every word. In all honesty, this album is going to be one of the greatest hits of 2007, so don't be behind the ball. Let this Calgary born Canadian shed some light into your music choices... you won't regret it. If i could, I would give her 6 stars, a blue ribbon, a trophy and a huge round of applause, she deserves it.


this is such a good album, 1234, brandy alexander, and honey honey are amazing, ahh such a album 5 STARS ALL THE WAY
