    It's not terrible, but hardly lives up to it's critical reputation. It's just too diffuse -- I'd probably still own it if it had one or two undeniable classics replacing the meandering instrumentals and half-formed songs. As it stands, most of the album simply isn't very memorable.

    I agree with Eric...it's good background music, but that's about it. It's not the least bit memorable - not at any point did I think, wow, I really like this song. It was okay for one listen, but I don't see myself going back. I don't see how this album has such great reviews. It's not bad...it's just not good, either.

    A mix of boring instrumentals and a few good indie and pop songs. They don't do their post-rock upbringings any justice on this album.

    I'd hate to disagree with such a huge fan base, but I just can't bring myself to enjoy these guys as much as The New Pornographers or The Arcade Fire. I know people will disagree with me, but this cd is just too bland to remember.

  1. This record explodes with song after song of endlessly replayable, perfect pop.
  2. The commitment to iconoclastic expressiveness, which includes belting out some fairly raunchy lyrics, leads to dead ends, but Broken Social Scene never blows it altogether, because it holds onto its hooks to get out of tough corners.
  3. "People" boasts an uncommon beauty and originality, brimming with tunes that glimmer with pure magic.
