I Blame O'Mahony

Don't get me wrong: I actually really liked this album. That is, I thought the songs were good, but I kept getting the feeling that the real Metric album never released, and I was just listening to a bunch of bad remixes. And after looking at the album credits, I think I know why. Fantasies was mixed by John O'Mahony, known for his work mixing Coldplay (a prominent selling point for the album). Well, it looks like someone got a little happy with GarageBand, because I couldn't hear a single real instrument for most of the album: most of it's digitized choirs, organs, and synths. When I do hear a real guitar, it's playing riffs that sound like an Interpol B-side. The sound of this record just does not do justice to Emily Haines' considerable musical chops. And what's with O'Mahony's obsession with echoes? Nothing against Coldplay, but not every band benefits from the space-orchestra treatment. In the past, Emily's songwriting was the main thing that set Metric apart from the rest of the pop-rock scene. In Fantasies, she hasn't lost her skill. But none of these songs are her best work. Her hooks are as likely vague and fanciful as they are her usual snippets of genius. Just listen to the chorus of "Satellite Mind". Fantasies is not a bad album. A crazy-good Metric record is somewhere in all these tracks; it's just hidden under many layers of mixing. Mixing that's so bad and so hamhanded, Metric's presence is almost completely smothered. I can't wait to see Metric play these songs live -- without O'Mahony there to screw them up.


Throughout their long career, Metric has been able to continually re-invent their sound on every album while still maintaining a level of excellence. In 'fantasies', they have reached a level of musical genius that they have never shown before. Each and every track on this record is a work of art, with breath-taking vocals, insane hooks, and a lyrical genius that only Metric could match. This is easily an early contender for the Best Album of 2009.

Very Good, Not Great

We start with 10 well-written songs and the incredible promise of a band that left audiences literally trembling at SXSW in 2006 (Stubb's 3/17/06). From there, we get a yeoman's peformance that is good, but certainly not the great gutteral output seen in "Combat Baby" and their prior (2005) album. This album is pleasing to listen to and perfectly fits into the post-punk modern alternative genre, but it is too satisfied with fulfilling objectives, and doesn't "punch you in the mouth," demanding an important message be heard, as it needed to do. At times, I found myself asking, did Metric cover the Killers here? Obviously, that's not the case, but that is the feel. Its good listening and certainly worth a buy. Will this yield the song by Metric that you fall in love with? Probably not. I hope they can recapture the energy they showed from 2003-2006 in their next endeavor.
