I was listening to Help I'm Alive when I saw this thread!

i have two songs from Fantasies. I need to get the whole album. I remember the drummer for my old band was super into Metric. I like what I'd heard so far

I love this album and hadn't heard of them prior to this (although I'd heard of Emily Haines). I need to check out their other albums.

I cant stand Metric, but I must say that Help I'm Alive is a pretty good tune

Some people may suggest starting at the beginning, but I would move backwards. The last album, Live It Out, is also very good. Well, they're all pretty good, but I'd go with that one next.

I like Emily's solo album well enough and I worship her work in BSS, but I'm just not crazy about Metric. Apparently this new album wouldn't change that.

I feel the opposite. Really, really like the album, but I think Help I'm Alive is pretty repetitive and tuneless. Doesn't start the album off on the right foot for me. Thankfully, Gold Guns Girls and Collect Call kick copious amounts of ass.

Help I'm Alive may be repetitive, but I'd hardly call it tuneless.

I've loved Metric since Old World Underground, and seen them live 2 or 3 times. They put on a hell of a show. I splurged on the special edition of Fantasies but I still don't have it though - something about a vinyl factory shutting down or amalgamating...

Stadium Love kicks quite a lot of ass.

Call me a snob, but I don't like that all the tweens have jumped on the Metric train.

Good call. The album is great. I'm hoping for a cross Canada tour. They're playing a festival here in July. But I probably can't go to it.

Do you happen to listen to 102.1 The Edge? Every second songs seems to be a Metric song! (fulfilling the Cancon requirement I suppose!)

I looked up their tour dates and they're playing Buffalo tomorrow night; wish I had known this last week as I would have taken some time off to go see them.

Have downloaded lots of their stuff in the past week and so far, so good

Yes! That's the one! I love that station.
