EDITORS’ NOTES

Metric's albums are always packed with invigorating New Wave pop tunes, but when frontwoman Emily Haines steps out from behind the buzzing synths and icy guitars, her voice is truly given the shine it deserves. “Legend of the Wild Horse,” “Strangle All Romance,” and “Nihilist Abyss” are grand, soul-baring vocal and piano showcases that dig deep into love's extremes. “Fatal Gift,” one of the more upbeat tracks here, serves as both a takedown of consumer culture and an existential meditation when she sings, "All the things you own, they own you.”

Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics.

Gorgeously gut-wrenching

This album is beautiful. A slightly different feel from her last two albums, but equally haunting, with sweeping sounds and well-written lyrics, all things we've come to expect from Emily. I've been listening to ithe album on repeat. My favorite tracks (right now): Nihilist Abyss (this one gets me teary-eyed); Statuette; Planets; Legend of the Wild Horse.

Buy this album and go see her live!!
