First of all I don't give out 5 stars easily. Second of all, this is a 4 and 1/2 star album but we aren't allowed to chose halves. Third, this is the Hip's most epic music, with nearly every song stretched to it's maximum capacity. Finally, few albums by any band in the nineties were this "big", and I'll be damned if I can think of a better "big" rock album. Every song runs seemlessly into the next, and every song at one time or another can be your favorite on the album. The sound the Hip have gone with here is more "alternative" (whatever that means)than the first four albums, and it comes closer to capturing their live sound. There are four unmitigated Hip classics here, and a whole albums worth of great songs. "Grace Too" and "Nautical Disaster" have remained constants in the live sets to this day and are the cornerstones of this album. "Grace Too" is one of the great album openers of the decade, opening gently and building to anthemic proportions, with cascades of intense layers of guitar ringing out of the speakers. "Nautical Disaster" is one of Gordon Downie's great story songs, but at the end we don't know if it is story or reality, as the character awakes from his vivid nightmare of tragedy at sea to feel the "fingernails scratching on my hull". "Scared" is stark and beautiful, eerily congering up dark images of fear before bowing out by saying "it's been a pleasure doing business with you". The sometimes underappreciated "Thugs" is the other gem, with it's driving percussion smothered in more layers of guitar magic.Read more ›

From the opening, swelling moments of "Grace, Too", to the final, driving chords of "Impossibilium", the Tragically Hip capture moments of sheer sonic majesty throughout this, their greatest album, and one of the very best albums of its decade. The centerpiece, "Nautical Disaster", captures in music the absolute manic psychosis of a nightmare with lucidity seemingly impossible in any other medium. "Grace, Too" captures Gord Downie's most vulnerable yet defiant vocal performance on record, and the amazing ascending-then-descending guitar and bass riff rivals any in rock history. "Scared" is hauntingly beautiful; simple, poetic, yet chilling. "Titanic Terrarium" carries a similar vibe, yet with a more overtly ominous tone. Perhaps the only misstep is the slightly vapid "An Inch An Hour", but that only stands out because every single other song on the record is just so incredibly strong that even a slightly less than stellar effort strikes the ear as impure. The Hip may be one of music's best kept secrets, their albums diamonds in an ever-increasing rough, and 'Day For Night' sparkles most brightly. Do yourself a favor and buy this album!

With lead singer Gordon Downies (he's a Canadian, of course he's named Gordon) high-pitched vocals leading the charge, the Tragically Hip have put together a masterful album. Every spectrum of emotions are covered here, with "Grace Too" beginning soft and culminating in a loud wash of guitars, to "Fire in the Hole," written with raw fury and emotion. It is really the lyrics that make this album special as Downie has written songs that people can not only identify with, but can feel on an emotional level. With music like this, it is often hard to tell why the Hip haven't ever cracked it state-side and have always remained one of the biggest groups in Canada. Up there, seeing the Hip is like seeing the Beatles.

Well being a Canadian I am a huge fan of The Hip. They are in many ways the best kept secret of our music scene. This album is great and for the first timers it represents a turning point for the band. Their stuff previous to this album was a raw, southern, almost 70's rock sound. This album touches all the spectrum and starts to show the great diversity in the bands sound. A strong album that touches many emotions and sounds. I strongly recommend to any one who is not familiar with this band,make this the first album of theirs to pick up. Gordon's voice is suburb and if anyone gets to see them live, jump at the chance. They are powerful.

This CD is just plain great. Gordon Downie again graces us with his fabulous lyrics, and he and Gord Sinclair write excellent music. This CD has a drive that I have never found on any other CD. It is truly fabulous. It is, however, a bit mistefying, as a line pops up a couple of times, in "Emergency" and "Imposiibilium: "Her Finger Starts to Wiggle, and Landscapes Appear" What does it mean? In my opinion, the best of The Hip, which is really saying a lot.
