love that song, but i think the bass and horns were way too low on that recording. cool to see though!

That was great, thanks.

Interesting time signature- it's in 3 subdivided into three, so I guess it's 9/8

I guess there are some other songs on the album in regular 3/4 and one in 6/8 so this one had to be the way it was to mix things up

it's in 6/8 but each verse clips the last beat from the last measure

one year passes...

Mushaboom and most of Let it Die are lame. However the Reminder is awesome, so is Monarch and what I've heard Metals and this of course...

She does 'Don't Give Up' on the new Peter Gabriel covers CD--haven't heard it yet, but am intrigued

I was just thinking "Hmm, I haven't heard from Feist in YEARS!" so I went on spotify to pull up The Reminder and was greeted by this album, which I had completely forgotten even exists.

i found it forgettable too. seemed like it removed everything i liked about her in the first place -- maybe purposefully, i don't know...

I wonder if I even listened to this in 2011. I probably did at least once, but playing it now is basically a new experience. Doesn't seem too bad atm.

It's an amazing album and by any other artist would be considered a masterpiece, I dunno what people saw in her first two records but this is the one

ha maybe i should give it another go... just didn't strike a chord w/ me at all.

"Undiscovered First" really is tremendous.

i saw her on this tour and that lineup of her bands and all the arrangments they did were so fucking great. just a well put together show.

yeah, great album. don't know why it went out so quietly

and big ups to Gene Yuen Lang for getting the Superman job with Romita, wow!

oops. wrong thread sorry. too many tabs open

First two albums have A++ moments but are patchy overall. Metals is far and away her best album, front to back.

Whoa, "Pleasure" kinda giving off a PJ Harvey vibe

Metals is such a great album

I haven't listened to Metals in a while but I have fond memories of "the Circle married the Line".

I actually don't know many of the songs by name since I just put on the cd and listen all the way through bcz it's an awesome album
