iTunes 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

lush life

In an interview Leslie Feist mentions that her new album was recorded with microphones placed outside the studio, in the garden, doors left ajar, windows wide open. There is a feeling of space on The Reminder. A sense of openess, of being outside in the sun. Yet this is an intensely personal record that also evokes solitude, nostalgia, melancholy. It is not as immediate as Let It Die but one of those slow-burning albums that slowly, gently engage you. It is a truly gorgeous sound - lush, light and fluid with an organic, acoustic undertone that contrasts quite well and stops the whole effort from becoming saccharine. My personal favourites would be the heart-wrenching The Water, the wittily misspelt "Sea Lion Woman" [I'm sure Nina Simone's smiling somewhere in the distance!], the wonderfully upbeat I Feel It All and, of course, definite summer anthem My Moon, My Man. The Reminder was definitely worth the wait.

Fantastic

Beautiful album, full of catchy yet fragile, quirky songs. I bought the album primarily for 'Sea Lion Woman', but the others are just as fab!

Stripped Honesty

Gifted with a clarity of voice that bares comparison to Joni Mitchell, Feist offers up a satisfying collection of songs that do her talent justice. If you have followed her career to date you will be familiar with the stripped honesty of her songwriting. The Reminder is further confirmation that Feist brings much more than polished performance to her work. This album connects easily and deserves a little of your time, very soon you will give it more.
