Awesome

Just when you think that the Quin twins have reached their peak, they do it again! This time with an edgy alt-pop album about the complexities of love and relationships. This album is a fusion of So Jealous and The Con. My favourite tracks include Alligator and Red Belt. After a first listen, I was slightly unsure if Tegan and Sara had hit the right note, but second time round, everything seemed to click into place. Be sure to buy this album. It is awesome.

A Musical Triumph. Their Best Yet.

After listening to this album a few times it has exceeded my initial expectations. With beautifully crafted albums such as "So Jealous" and "The Con" to follow up, it seemed unlikely that "Sainthood" would deliver - however, the Quin twins have dealt a record that is not only flawless, but beyond the standard of any of their previous works. The album becomes more exceptional with each listen, as ears pick up on technical keyboard fills and stunning lyrics. Every play uncovers new layers in each track, and every piece of melody is absolute gold. This album is a departure into a more mature and refined sound, and although there is an essence of "The Con" throughout, the record remains to be unlike anything you've ever heard from Tegan and Sara. Each track is outstanding, and unlike any other album i have come across - there is no track i dislike. I recommend that you listen to Everything On This Record.

A more than worthy follow-up for 'The Con'

'Sainthood', Tegan & Sara's sixth studio album, is very different from its predecessor 'The Con' but still has that unique T&S mix of quirkiness, catchiness and lyrical flair. Definitely worth buying and a record you will listen to over and over again! (see below for more in-depth info)

The style of 'Sainthood' is very distinct and much more pop than 'The Con'. Tegan's songs in particular (especially Someday, The Ocean and The Cure) have a kind of mainstream pop feeling to them. Depending on your personal view, this can be either a good or a bad thing. It sure means those songs are extremely catchy! Tegan shows her more punky and rocky side (previously evident in songs such as Speak Slow, Hop a Plane and Nineteen) on Northshore and Hell on this new record.

As usual, Sara's songs are more elaborate and harder to get into on first listen. However, personally, I think that they also show more musical brilliance and just keep growing on you the more you listen to them. To me, the best tracks on the album are On Directing, Night Watch and Arrow, although I have to admit the one I have listened to most so far is Alligator, a poppy tune in the vain of Back in your Head. All of those songs were written by Sara. However, it is important to remember that Tegan's songs definitely ADD to the record rather than substract from it. In many ways, despite the new sound, 'Sainthood' is a typical T&S album in that the 'heavier' fare of Sara's songs is lightened by Tegan's more easy-going style. Very well done, girls!
