Where to start? I rarely give anything a 5-star rating -- unlike most of the 12-year-olds who review albums on Amazon -- but Metric's 'Old World Underground' was easily one of the best albums of 2003. That goes for rock, hip hop, country, opera, it's THAT GROOVY. So here goes:
Metric's a four-piece outfit that's not British but musically can best be plugged into the new wave genre -- although the keyboard doesn't drive the band, save for ferocious climaxes in songs like "IOU" and "Hustle Rose." Nope, Metric actually has a pretty good guitarist whose style can best be described as 'riffy' -- not too complicated but incredibly infecting. Plus they have a real bassist and drummer, so there's no cheesy 80s-style machine pounding out the beats.
The vocalist/keyboardist is an incredibly cool woman whose name escapes me, I've seen 'em twice at the 9.30 Club here in Washington and she's worth the price of admission. As stated above, her keyboards complement a rock band, and if you absolutely must know they're not Black Sabbath, which I love just as much as the next guy.
No, their sound is totally wild -- 'IOU' is a punk-themed ode to the stupidity of bombing children, see the rocking chorus (every ten-year-old enemy soldier thinks falling bombs are shooting stars sometimes, but she doesn't wish on them ...); 'Hustle Rose,' the next song, is the classic new-wave synth-style tune about ringing the virtues of commercialism; "Succexy" is a blend of synth and rock chiding the public for sitting around and doing nothing while Dubya and his minions lead us into foreign policy disaster after disaster (all we do is talk and split screens while the homeland plans enemies).

This is a great example of wicked contemporary Canadian music and how less can be so much more.

Great melodies and instrumentation, and E Haines has one of the purest, sexiest voices I've ever heard. Not a huge fan of the more synth oriented songs, but even they are way more original and better than anything you'll hear on the radio.

I can't say enough about songs like Succexy, IOU and The List... they are insanely catchy (that guitar riff in the "passive attraction" section is sick).

It's fascinating, this is the kind of band I usually detest, but I guess it's the combination of deceptively simple arrangements, great oblique lyrics, solid guitar/bass/drumming and that beguiling voice that does it for me everytime.

I think my gf is starting to regret ever introducing me to them!

This band is amazing and their music is fantastic. Emily Haines and James Shaw met and formed the band in Toronto, then moved to Brooklyn, spent time in London and have ended up in L.A., picking up members along the way. This explains their sound, which I gladly find hard to pin down to any one location. But you can hear a bit of the Yeah Yeah Yeah's in Emily's voice, especially on Wet Blanket, and there's something almost Montreal-like to it all - both great things. A great bunch of songs, really.

From the slightly snarky lyrics to the catchy melodies, literate composition, and expressive, yet perfectly controlled vocals, this CD is audio crack. Please tell me how to get "combat baby" out of my head.

I enjoy this cd for all it's catchy' lyrics and melodies. Even though it only has 10 tracks Old World Underground, Where Are you Now deserves four stars. Why not five you ask? Because I find that in some of the songs the lyrics are repetead all little too often. This cd is still one of the best I own right now.

took me quite a long time to catch on with this band, but when I heard them for the first time, I knew I had to have their album.
So catchy, so dancey. Who wouldn't love it?

It's got the creativity of the Toronto Post-Rock Indy scene but polished up to be more accessible. Like Wet Blanket the most, but Dead Disco and the others shine.
