Album Review

Somewhere in between living with Peaches, playing guitar with By Divine Right, rapping with Chilly Gonzales, and singing with Broken Social Scene and Apostle of Hustle, Canadian songstress Feist started a solo career. Following up 1999's self-released Monarch, Let It Die was recorded in Paris between 2002 and 2003. The romance of the City of Lights glows throughout as a combination of folk, bossa nova, jazz-pop, and indie rock finds its place among the 11-track song list. She'll woo you with her sultry vocals throughout, a delicate and sweet voice that feels cozy. From the warm shimmy and shake of "Gatekeeper" and "Mushaboom" to the classy R&B grooves of "One Evening" and "Leisure Suite," Feist explores various musical worlds without getting lost. She reels you into different soundscapes and it's an exciting adventure. Dare yourself to imagine Patrice Rushen, Ivy's Dominique Durand, and Astrud Gilberto in a group, and that's basically the beginning threads of Let It Die. Feist never holds back sonically or musically; however, Let It Die isn't an extravagant first album. She's playful with her design and the overall composition flows nicely. Feist has varied styles and sounds just right, and that's what makes Let It Die the secret treasure that it is. Her rendition of Ron Sexsmith's "Secret Heart" is a cinematic outing for a dewy spring day. The Bee Gees' "Inside and Out" gets a foxy makeover for what is probably the album's finest moment. Feist's soft touch makes magic on these particular covers, and the bittersweet loveliness of Blossom Dearie's "Now at Last" ties it all together to make Let It Die a storybook romance.

Customer Reviews

Feist's best work!

So glad this album finally came across the sea to U.S. iTunes! The originals from the songs that were remixed on Open Season are here. All of the songs on here are so unique. The 1st track, Gatekeeper, shows Leslie's beautiful vocals. The original of Mushaboom is better than the remixes. It is such a pure, lovely song. Let It Die, the title track, reminds me of Norah Jones, with the lingering instrumentation underneath captivating lyrics. One Evening, the original, is just as great as the remix, a little more chilled out. Those are the first 4 tracks, the best in my opinion.

No Feist Album Beats It

Her best songs - no doubt about it. When you buy it, you won't regret it! No track on here sounds the same - they are all beautiful. I hightly reccomend pressing the buy button

Beautiful

It is about time this album was on iTunes! I've been wondering why they didn't have it. And just so everyone knows, this album came out BEFORE The Reminder... moving on... This album is incredible. I was floored on the first listen all the way through. Feist has this breathy, sexy voice. Her sound is altogether delicate, sassy, heartbreaking...you name it. Mushaboom is a song I can listen to on repeat for hours, it makes me so happy. Other phenomenal tracks include: One Evening (check out the music video, it's adorable), Leisure Suite (fantastic), Inside and Out (even better than the original by the Bee Gees), and Gatekeeper (very simple, just sounds like it's her voice and a guitar...there's something incredibly personal to it). This album set Feist up as the classy, lovely songstress everyone knows her to be. DON'T just be satisfied with The Reminder...I know 1234 made her famous, but I wouldn't hesitate to argue that this album trumps The Reminder, hands down. Give it a try, you will not be disappointed!
