Another album I forgot:
Feist - Let It Die 3
Good, but not great. Don't get me wrong - she's a phenominally talented singer, I absolutely love her subtle guitar-playing, and there are some real gems on the album (basically the first half of the album - and a guilty pleasure being "L'Amour ne Dure Pas Toujours"). When the lyrics and her voice are the focus, she shines. But other times there is a little bit of 80's-era production, and it's a bit much for me. And lyrics like "I love you inside and out" over a dance beat strike me as a little cheesy. Sorry. Basically this is an album you should probably check out - the critics aren't wrong about her. Just be ready to feel that it could have been better.
OK, enough of music snobbery. I'm going to go listen to some Elton John now. Make of that what you will.
