Broken Social Scene

Album Title: Broken Social Scene
Release Date: October 4, 2005
Rating:
Genre: Rock
The Toronto collective's first offering after their enormous You Forgot It In People breakthrough, Broken Social Scene has a hard hill to climb to match it's predecessor's success. Their self-titled offering is less accessible and (somewhat) less engaging than You Forgot, but it certainly has its high moments. One of these is "7/4 (Shoreline)" which features member Leslie Feist's powerful, unique vocals at an expressive high. The sonic mishmash of what sounds like a quadrillion different instruments is still Broken Social Scene's trademark, and there will be a lot of angry people out there if they ever try to change that. Even when the day comes that praise isn't lauded by the truckful on BSS, one gets the sense that they'll keep ploughing away and writing their musical paintings as surely as ever. Broken Social Scene should please current fans, and while it won't convert any haters, it still has the wondrous power to blow the minds of searching ears.
