Metric is excited to announce the release of a new album, Live It Out, on Last Gang Records, recorded throughout the year in Montreal and Toronto. Features the Single 'Monster Hospital'. 2005.
Toronto's Metric has the ability to appeal to fans on a number of levels: the group captures the likeability of Elastica with the cheekiness of Blondie and then mixes that new wave style with just enough of a growling guitar to give it some oomph. Since their last release, the acclaimed Old World Underground, Where Are You Now?, Metric's sound has morphed slightly; this follow-up is a little more guitar-based and slightly less electronic than their last, a move likely to broaden their fan base even further.
Metric's rock-meets-new-wave is not only timely, it is joyful to boot. The driving track "Handshakes" could easily qualify for the next ipod commercial, while "Monster Hospital"'s retro punk style has a Clash-inspired chorus that will stay in your head for days. By the same token, the band's musical diversity is especially evident in the beautiful "The Police and the Private," where one could easily imagine that they are listening to an up-tempo Sarah Harmer track. Metric's cross-genre appeal is at least party due to frontwoman Emily Haines' delivery. A smart writer and performer, Haines' contributions to the Broken Social Scene collective have already made her voice somewhat familiar, and in her own element she shines especially bright. From her delicate whispers (the Pink Floyd-esque "Ending Start") to her Eurotrash-inspired yelps ("Live It Out") Haines has the "it" factor that makes indie rock critics swoon, and keeps fans dedicated. --Denise Sheppard
Like the first Metric CD, it took me some time to listen to it and actually like it. It took longer this time because the songs were more hard. Soft then hard. Lol but anyways. Read morePublished on Feb. 26 2006

This album is shockingly bad. Old World... was surprisingly good, but not fantastic. These guitar based songs are just common alternative rock garbage. There is no creativity. Read morePublished on Dec 15 2005 by Z Purcell
