Listening to this thing is like watching a pitcher throw a no-hitter.
Unassuming, unpretentious and totally listenable too, this is thirteen songs and fifty minutes that might just make her famous.
Blender[The] sense of playful adventure ensures that smooth needn't mean snoozy. [Jun 2007, p.108]
The Reminder may not surprise, but it does force one to ignore the cloying marketed image and just love Feist for the talented individual that she is.
Though jangly uptempo ditties are nothing new for the Canadian singer-songwriter, it's these kinds of songs, seemingly constructed for radio play, that mar the otherwise radiant Reminder.
Q MagazineSurprisingly conventional. [May 2007, p.124]

Oct 8, 2011Beatiful. Just that I can say when something like "The Reminder" is made. With GREAT lyrics, and indie beats, the voice of Leslie Feist justBeatiful. Just that I can say when something like "The Reminder" is made. With GREAT lyrics, and indie beats, the voice of Leslie Feist just fitted so well in the best record of 2007, "1234", and in others like "My Moon, My Man", "So Sorry" and "The Water", and this remarkable CD will be forever remebered as the one that made indie music go back to the highlights of mainstream!… Expand
PhilGMay 8, 2007This album is a complete album. Like they used to make in the early 70's. The style of each song varies, spanning all types of music This album is a complete album. Like they used to make in the early 70's. The style of each song varies, spanning all types of music genres. I hear influences from the Burt Bacharat to The Pretenders to Goldfrapp, and everywhere in between. But there are two constants throughout the album: The impressive vocals of Leslie Feist and the pure musical talent of Gonzalez. If you own and love Feist's first album, Let It Die, buy Reminder immediately. If you own and love Reminder, buy Let It Die Immediately. There is no question that Lesie Feist is a diamond in this rough music industry. And diamonds last forever.… Expand

emilywApr 27, 2007Sorry, why are we still putting Austin Chronicle reviews on Metacritic? I thought the people who started this Web site would have realized Sorry, why are we still putting Austin Chronicle reviews on Metacritic? I thought the people who started this Web site would have realized long ago that they consistenly give shitty reviews. And really, it's not just that they constantly get it totally wrong (although that is part of it), it's more that if you read the review you can tell that the reviewer has no idea what they are talking about. They literally just throw around names of artists and influences like they actually know what they are talking about. Credible people like the NY Times and Playlouder must be trusted here because this is the album of the year so far.… Expand
AlexandraSep 3, 2007I absolutely love this record...I have been listening to it non-stop since I got it. Leslie Feist's voice is so beautiful and I absolutely love this record...I have been listening to it non-stop since I got it. Leslie Feist's voice is so beautiful and passionate, and her songs so truly personal and accessible that this album is an instant classic. I think Sean D. listened to something else because 'The Reminder' absolutely does NOT sound like a Norah Jones album..it is so much more ecclectic in style. Definitely a must have.… Expand
