Album Review

After the release of Feel Good Lost, Broken Social Scene became a bit more collective, swelling from two members to ten (plus guests) and dropping their ambient instrumental approach in favor of full-blown rock songs. As you'd expect with such a dramatic rise in membership, there's a lot more variety this time out. The first two tracks mirror the band's transformation perfectly; in fact, the first is a fairly airy instrumental number with a Mark Isham-like feel, while the second slams it off the rails with a driving beat and wailing guitars. Main members Brendan Canning and Kevin Drew even sing this time around, while Leslie Feist and Emily Haines — both of whom became Canadian stars after this release, which effectively fueled interest in Feist's solo albums and Haines' work with Metric — assume lead vocals on other tracks. According to one of the members of this incarnation of the group, trying to determine "who did what" on this album would warrant an entire review in itself, as everyone took turns playing different instruments and the whole project was built from the ground up in a very collective fashion. Listeners who prefer the ambient pop of Feel Good Lost may be put off by the all-over-the-map approach, but You Forgot It in People is a more accessible release overall, and it helped set the stage for Broken Social Scene's international breakthrough in 2005.

Customer Reviews


No one has reviewed this yet?! Crazy...This is one of the original classics of the initial big indie boom...First off, start with or move on to their first album "Feel Good Lost"...unreal....i'm looking at the ceiling shaking my head just thinking about it, because its indescribable...PERFECT for driving at night, and going to sleep...This album...Any 16 years olds reading this!!!! My only hope is that future generations of kids who just got their license, will be cruising around aimlessly with their friends, sharing a laugh, creating waves of nostalgia and memories and listening to "Pacific Theme"...period...if you know you know, if you don't now you do....Liked their later stuff, but the first too albums are true classics...a must for someone who likes music in general

I agree with GEEEEZZZZ

Anthems for a Seventeen Year Old Girl is an amazing Song, and this album should be appreaciated more.

Really unique band in the form of AmAnSet imo. Very mellow. Good tunes.

Broken Social Scene materialized in 1999 when K.C. Accidental's Kevin Drew and Brendan Canning, formerly of By Divine Right, bonded their friendship into a band. They spent the next few years honing an atmospheric rock sound in their native Toronto and the dynamic was great. Feel Good Lost marked their debut album in 2001 and introduced a revolving cast of Canadian indie musicians. Drew's fellow mate from Do Make Say Think, Charles Spearin, was added to the band, as well as Evan Cranley (Stars),...
