iTunes Review

Sloan, one of Canada’s finest groups for the past twenty years, is back with their tenth album, the quick and concise The Double Cross, where the band shows its knack for a pop hook is second to none. Bassist Chris Murphy’s “Follow the Leader” kicks things off with a sound in perfect league with Squeeze. Guitarist Jay Ferguson’s “The Answer Was You” comes creeping with its Mellotron chasing the tight-knit harmonies. Lead guitarist Patrick Petland throws in the sliced and diced power pop of “Unkind.” Even drummer Andrew Scott contributes two tracks, including the bristling shuffle of “Traces.” With four songwriters in the group and talented vocalists all around, Sloan can pull off anything they desire. Power- pop and psychedelia, however, are their preferred interests and “Your Daddy Will Do” explores another way the Beach Boys could have taken their post Pet Sounds material. The sweet ballad “Green Gardens, Cold Montreal” is further proof of just how great this band can be.

Customer Reviews

Great as usual, but one problem.

Is anyone else having the last two seconds of the first two songs completely devoid of sound? The tracks sound like they're meant to flow together. It's not a pause between songs, it's a few seconds OF the songs just not there.

Other than that technical problem, the album is great. Beatle-ish harmonies and alternating vocals, behind riffs that channel Cheap Trick.

How to fix tracks 1&2

For track 1 go to the info for the track and select Options. Then put the Stop Time at 2:56.27. For track 2 do the same but set the Stop Time for 2:18. This seems to help quite a bit. Sloan record lots of tracks like this (which I love) but sometimes I've had to fix them to make them play right on my ipod. Album rocks by the way, but if you are reading this you probably already know that. MOST UNDERRATED BAND OF ALL TIME.

Dropout

Same problem with the dropping out audio ;\

Biography

Formed: 1991 in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

Sloan was one of the most successful Canadian bands of the '90s, which was both a blessing and a curse. While they were well known in their homeland, where their Beatlesque power pop became a radio staple, they had a difficult time breaking into the American market, especially after their label, DGC, decided not to market their hooky pop in the wake of grunge. After spending several years fighting the label, and nearly breaking up, Sloan re-emerged in 1996 with One Chord to Another, a record that...
