Metric – Fantasies

16 04 2009

Four years and a soul-searching trip to Argentina later, we get the much-anticipated new studio release from Metric, whose latest album Fantasies dropped on Tuesday. There’s a couple forgettable songs, but overall I think it’s a solid record, with pockets of greatness. The star of the show, as always, being Haines’s voice/songwriting. The slower/more restrained moments on the album are where its at for me…standout tracks being “Collect Call”, “Blindness”, and of course “Help I’m Alive”. Didn’t think “Help..” could get any better, but it did once The Twelves got their hands on it (also, check out the acoustic version on the band’s website).

Is it just me or does the beginning of ‘Collect Call’ sound quite a lot like Mogwai’s ‘Auto Rock’? Delightful song though.
