12 Songs, 46 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Pushing their bluesy twang to the background, but keeping their earnestness front and center, the Hip strike creative gold with the meat-and-potatoes alt-rock of Fully Completely. The songs are rhythm-driven, with prominent bass leading a shimmer of rootsy guitars and the arch drawl of frontman Gordon Downie. The stealthily incisive "At the Hundredth Meridian" and passionately amped-up "Locked in the Trunk of a Car" embrace an unexpected darkness, emblematic of this album's captivating, post-punk luminescence.

Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics.

Timeless and Brilliant. This album speaks for a generation of Canadians

The only thing tragic about the Tragically hip is that their influence remains primarily in Canada.

They dominated the Canadian music scene during the 90's and still retain a strong audience looking for nostalgia. This is a band that could have been larger than life with the right marketing strategy in the U.S.. Canadian exports like Alanis Morrisette, Brian Adams and Celine Dion have gone far because of marketing to the American public.

For me, this album conjurs up images of Spring Break and a decade of Canadian "bush" parties. It's songs resonate from Ontario's cottage country to the heart of big cities like Toronto and Montreal. It remains one of my favorite albums of all time.

Fully Completely

This has been my all-time favorite band for over ten years now. Seen them live 7 or 8 times now and I never tire of any of the songs on this album. True talent and in the States they are not as well known as you would think. How could one album have so many great tunes?!?

timeless

gotta say that this album has been a favorite of my for over a decade now. I never get tired of spinning it from head to tail. 100th meridian still gives me the shivers, it's such a powerfully woven metephor for life out west.
