Album Review

A far superior effort to Sloan's scattershot debut, 1994's Twice Removed is a clever and varied collection of smart and catchy pop songs. Without the grunge-era production that smothered some of the best songs on Smeared, the sparkling wit of the lyrics and catchy directness of the melodies shine through. All four members write and sing, which accounts for the variation between songs like the punkish opener, "Penpals," and the chiming guitars and "ba-ba-ba" chorus of the sublime "People of the Sky," the highest of the album's high points. Other goodies include the puckish media slam "I Hate My Generation" and the dreamy, largely acoustic closer, "I Can Feel It," with its harmonies by Jale's Jennifer Pierce. Not everything works quite so well — the seven-minute "Before I Do" is at least two and a half minutes too long — but Twice Removed was the first indication that Sloan was more than Canada's answer to the Lemonheads.

Customer Reviews

Sloan's very best album from start to finish

Sloan has many good albums, but this is their best I think (I'm sorry: One Chord to Another is close). I hate to say this for songwriters who are still writing some of their best work (Pretty Together; Action Pact). Bells On, I Can Feel It, Loosens are beautiful pieces. So many songs JUST ROCK-Deeper Than Beauty, Snowsuit Sound, I Hate My Generation. Just get the full album.

A Superb Work

I can say that this is one of my top 5 all time favorite CD's by any artist. Beginning to end, it is a bundle of sweet goodness. Deny "Bells On" or their live encore staple, "Deeper Than Beauty", I dare you. You cannot.


Such a feel good, fun album! A definite must have. Also a great Sloan starter album!

Sloan were 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...
