Okay, so I had a really positive review all written up but then I decided to re-listen to 'Broken Social Scene' and 'You Forgot It In People,' and I became increasingly disappointed in the new album. Yes, it's good, in fact it's very good, but I don't quite think even the best of the album (All To All/Sentimental X?) holds a candle to 'Swimmers', 'Bandwitch', '7/4 Shoreline,' or hell, any of 'You Forgot It In People.' (Maybe it's the lack of involvement from Feist/Amy Millan/Emily Haines?)
Then again, BSS seem to grow on me in unexpected ways, so who knows...

Speaking of Amy Millan, there's a new Stars album coming soon!!!
