The reminder

I’ve been listening to the new Feist album The Reminder and I don’t think it generally compares very well to their previous release: Let It Die. The best songs on the previous album, like “When I was a Young Girl” and “L’amour ne dure pas toujours” had some energy to them. Most of those in the newer album seem flat and drawn out. Those songs that do have some energy, such as “Sea Lion Woman” are just too repetitive to be interesting. Like the previous album, this one experiments with a wide variety of musical styles; unlike the previous one, the best tracks aren’t terribly enjoyable.

I am sure there are people out there who love it, but it is destined to endure in the infrequently visited portions of my iTunes library.

It is worth pointing out that my musical tastes can change dramatically once I become more familiar with an artist. When I first heard Neko Case, I didn’t think all that much of her. Now, I think Fox Confessor Brings the Flood is the best album I have come across in the last two years.
