The Reminder

CD Review: Feist


Interscope; Release date: May 1, 2007

The Deal: Canadian chanteuse offers up sophomore album.

The Good: Following up on the success of her debut solo album, Let it Die, the former Broken Social Scene singer aims to win over more fans -- if they haven't been turned already. From sleepy Norah-Jones-style ballads such as "How My Heart Behaves" and "The Park" to more upbeat tunes like "Sea Lion Woman" and "I Feel it All," Leslie Feist displays a range in her vocals and styles on the 13-track album.

The Bad: She's playing small clubs and theatres, but it won't last for long at the rate she's going.

The Verdict: The swinging, bouncy "Musha-boom" from her solo debut is hard to replace, but The Reminder does plenty to try and build off of it. You're going to hear a lot more about her in the future.
