Product Description

Amazon.ca

The story of 22-year-old Calgary-born twins Tegan and Sara has always been slightly more interesting than their fiercely untamed folk-punk. Sure, they channel the spirit of early Ani DiFranco and they caught the ear of both major labels and musical genius-savant Hawksley Workman, who added negligible production sheen to their debut disc, 2000's careening and slightly tentative This Business of Art. Still, seeing the girls has always been way more fun than actually hearing them. It's a point Tegan and Sara seem to address on their second disc, If It Was You, in more ways than one. For a start, the faces staring out from the cover are glam, glam, glam--not exactly M.A.C. gone amok but a startling departure from their former tomboy look. Within, the disc makes a bold play for pure-pop crossover. Several tracks, such as the chiming "Monday Monday Monday" and "Not Tonight" would be unthinkable at a folk festival while "Living Room," with its supple banjo and booming multivoice chorus, is more Dixie Chicks than Chixdiggit. Credit producers John Collins and Dave Carswell, who have served with lush Vancouver pop combo the New Pornographers. This is vocally driven, folksy pop-rock and all the better for it. --Kim Hughes

Product Description

2007 reissue of the critically and commercially successful Canadian duo's If It Was You album, originally released in 2002. Tegan And Sara are not your average singer-songwriter-guitarist identical twins. 2004's So Jealous was named one of Rolling Stone's 50 best albums of the year. They've played Coachella and Lollapalooza, and toured with The Killers, Hot Hot Heat and Neil Young. Their 'Walking With A Ghost' was covered by the White Stripes. They've performed on Late Night, The Late Show and The Late Late Show. And that's just the tip of the iceberg. They've always been great...it just took some time for everyone else to notice! 12 tracks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Teagn and Sara are a breath of fresh air! June 29 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I bought this cd wondering if I really would like it that much. I am always interested in hearing something new so Tegan and Sara intrigued me. What a pleasant surprise it was to find out that they are awesome. I found myself within the first week of my purchase, listening to the cd everywhere, at home, at work, and in the car. My favorite songs are "Don't Confess", "Living Room" (the banjo was in my opinion an inspired choice of instrument in this song, it gives the song a slight rustic feel), and "Monday, Monday, Monday". So if you're intrested in folk music, and canadian chicks that rock, definitely pick up this cd!

5.0 out of 5 stars Not One Bad Song! April 28 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Tegan and Sara have really evolved from their last album, which was more poppy. This cd is an amazing collection of moods, emototions and can therefore be listened to without skipping one track. Buy this cd, and if you don't like it everyone around you will.

5.0 out of 5 stars T & S rock! April 27 2004
Format:Audio CD
Tegan and Sara are rock stars. Their lyrics are awesome, their music is addictive, their voices are their own. It's a shame they're not plastered on the cover of every big music magazine out there. It's a shame their video's aren't playing on MTV every 2 minutes. It's a shame they haven't sold out...oh wait...
Here's a band that's sold a ton of records not because their faces are everywhere on magazines and television, but because their music is unlike anything you've ever heard before. They're a group unlike any other and they rock. They're just about the music. They kick @$$ and you're missing out on something great if you haven't added them to your cd collection yet.

5.0 out of 5 stars You'll be hooked Feb. 26 2004
By kayaker
Format:Audio CD
Tegan and Sara's "If it was You" kept popping up on my amazon.com recommendation list, so I listened to the short clips provided on the site. I wasn't much impressed until I downloaded live, unplugged mp3's of Tegan and Sara via KPSU, a radio station out of Portland. I'm glad I gave this duo a second chance!
I'm now officially a Tegan and Sara fan and have since purchased two of their records and am waiting impatiently for thier third CD and tour.
If It Was You is a strong album, filled with catchy hooks, impressive lyrics and vocal styles that compliment each other very well. There's not a dud on the record, but best songs include: Monday Monday Monday, You Went Away, Not Tonight, I Hear Noises and Living Room.

5.0 out of 5 stars If It Was You Jan. 17 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I heard these girls on Viki Gabereau and was blown away. These girls are great muscians. It's an amazing album. "Living Room" and "You went Away" are my favorites, but every single song on this album is awesome. Their other albums are really good too but "If It Was You" is the best. It's more rockin than the others.

5.0 out of 5 stars starts with a confession Jan. 16 2004
Format:Audio CD
I have a downloading confession to make - but I hope you'll all agree that it has a happy ending for all involved. I first heard of Tegan and Sara by downloading "Monday, Monday, Monday" after seeing the last 5 seconds of them on a local CBC show and thinking that they were a cool duo (I was in my "chicks with guitars" phase... Then I downloaded "Living Room" after seeing it was on the list of songs to vote for on Much More Music's website (for their top 10). I'd never seen the video, so I downloaded it too. I was starting to be impressed by their fresh sound compared to the over-produced pop on the airwaves today. Not just with the singing and musicianship, but the smart lyrics and original music. I soon found myself downloading "I Want to be Bad" and was officially hooked. Thus began my search for Tegan and Sara's website, which led to seeing some of the tour footage and such. I bought the album "If It Was You" soon after from Amazon and am now looking at "This Business of Art". Excellent albums from an excellent example of real music, born from two excellent singer/songwriters who write songs in a genuine way. Not for the crowd, but for themselves - infusing them with a certain honesty that you can't produce with remixing. Their sound? Acoustic driven simplicity with layers of guitars and bass - makes the album more intense each time you listen to it. Try it in the car, at home, then on headphones and you'll see what I mean. I've already gotten my girlfriend and other friends into Tegan and Sara. Read more ›
