5.0 out of 5 stars Hypnotic and addictive, just wonderful. April 23 2007
"The Reminder" is particularly difficult to classify.

Nova Scotia-born Leslie Feist has refined the sound of her hectic career thus far into 13 sparkling musical gems.

She has cavorted in Berlin with Peaches and toured with vast Toronto alt-rock outfit Broken Social Scene, but now, with "The Reminder", the 31- year-old has come brilliantly into her own. A quiet confidence fills slower numbers such as "Limit To My Love", produced by long-time collaborator Gonzales, while the summery verve of "1 2 3 4" and "I Feel It All" provides an upbeat counterbalance.

Feist's delicate voice, which she damaged as a punk-screaming teenager, beguiles throughout.

The yearning ballads are shiny happy pop songs such as "The Moon My Man" and especially "1 2 3 4". The latter is probably the catchiest thing she's ever done, a nursery rhyme style melody set to acoustic guitar, strings, banjo and a quite brilliant brass section. The sound of the summer lies within.

This is a fine album and certainly Feist's best yet.

Whether it be the haunting "Honey Honey" or the swaggering "The Moon My Man", there's guaranteed to be something of interest for all.

The Canadian music scene goes from strength to strength.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funky fresh March 19 2008
By Deanne
Feist's album is quite entertaining! My favorite tracks are: "I Feel It All", "So Sorry", "1, 2, 3, 4", "Sea Lion Woman", and "The Water". The packaging is also nicely put together.

5.0 out of 5 stars feist - reminder - pitchfork Jan. 17 2008
On "Mushaboom", the signature track from her 2004 breakthrough album Let It Die, Leslie Feist claimed, "It may be years until the day my dreams will match up with my pay." Now, after countless sold-out shows across the world, close to half of a million records sold, and placement in a commercial for British bed manufacturers Silentnight, it seems safe to say this NPR darling's "pay" should be satisfactory. But, while Feist may now be able to afford the idyllic hideaway she pined for in "Mushaboom", the Calgary native still wouldn't be able to enjoy its creature comforts thanks to her hectic, frequent-flyer schedule. Alas: Faraway, so close. Brimming with heartbreak, solitude, and foggy memories, Feist's "dreams" still sound distant on The Reminder, the singer's outstanding third album.
Mostly written on the road, the new LP gets its inspiration from the disconnections of non-stop, intercontinental hotel-jumping. Talking about her ephemeral lifestyle in an interview with Pitchfork last year, Feist said, "You just never set roots; you take pleasure in simple conversations, because you know you're not going to have much more than that." Though she's trekked on her own and with bands including By Divine Right and Broken Social Scene for more than a decade, the 31-year-old songwriter sounds desperate for something more than "simple conversation" here.

Unlike the half-covers/half-original split of Let It Die, every song but one was at least co-written by Feist on The Reminder. (And her buzzing take on the traditional playground sing-along "Sea Lion Woman" makes it distinctively Feist-ian anyway.) Whereas her last album's smoothed-out eclecticism could be both daunting and empty, The Reminder is equally diverse yet more full-blooded.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm quite taken by this album May 18 2007
Well here comes Feist again, with her 2nd album (not counting the remix album). I wasn't sold on the first one, even though it was good in some spots. Reminder is just really charming and full of life and sounds, but almost more atmospheric than added sound. This is a very well crafted album and I enjoy it a lot. Some songs leave you singing along and bouncy while others leave you empty inside, with the bleakest of feelings; yet the songs have been blended so well that you aren't thrown off by the change song by song and in fact buy into it and just go with the flow of the mood. I really think this is an album that will take Feist to the next level as a song writer and hopeful gets her air play on more Canadian stations. I love mostly the background noises, they really make the songs shine. I've give this album 4.5 stars but I'm not aloud on Amazon to get half stars, so I gave it a 5 cuz it's better than a 4 but by all means even if you don't like Feist, or only like some of her songs (such as me going into this album) then take the chance and buy this album, I promise you won't reget it.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Great Leap Forward? Sept. 12 2007
I bought this album on the strengh of what I heard in a record shop. I was blown away by the incredible voice and the immediately catchy sound. The voice was familiar but I couldn't figure out why. When I discovered the artist's identity it made more sense, as I already owned her first album, but had dimissed it as being merely OK(plus there were some worryingly Sade-like tendencies).

I have had some time now to digest the album and I would say that it is a strange mix of perfection and near-misses, but the near-misses are far better than 95% of what's out there. I've since decided that the real reason her voice seems so familiar is a vague resemblance to Ricky Lee Jones rather than my remembering of her prior work.

One of the things that some people liked about her previous album was the intimacy that derived from its restrained production. Well here they've pulled out all the stops and if anything there are a couple of tracks where you actually wish they'd held back(on the reverb' say)a little. But overall I would say that this album benefits hugely from a LESS minimalist approach. While Feist has progressed with this album I'm not convinced it is all in a positive direction.

There is an amazing variety of material on this album, but perhaps not enough killer tracks. It certainly deserves some success and I suspect it will get it.
