Customer Reviews

rewind me

The songs on this just aren't very good, but her vocals never disappoint the listener. They have certainly gotten better with time.

Totally different album

A much softer side of Metric, more pop less edge. Actually the first full length album they recorded, it was not released until 2007 after being revised. I happen to like this album, Haines' vocals are first rate, though it is my least favorite Metric for sure. Certainly worth a listen before you decide.

Great Album

Just like I did with "fantasies" and "Synthetica" I downloaded this album for free and didn't buy it on iTunes till months later after really appreciating this body of work. This album is very different than there most recent masterpieces but that's not to say this isn't a masterpiece in it's own different way. Very unique melodies and such great deep lyrics will leave you lost within them. Metric is one of the best bands for years and still haven't got their just due. Great album and one of their most deepest yet.
