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 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Though I know what I love most of him April 30 2007
By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Feist helped bring back heartfelt, subtle pop in her second album, "Let it Die." And in "The Reminder," this talented singer not only polishes up her sound, she expands it to include more colourful, expansive, complicated melodies that draw from jazz, pop, folk, a bit of funk, and some pretty little ballads.

The first song is an echo of her last album's style -- a gentle guitar ballad, about someone who doesn't want to fight or break up. Feist murmurs through it, "I'm sorry, two words/I always think after you're gone... We're slaves to our own forces/We're afraid of our emotions/No one, knows where the shore is."

But then she switches over to a poppier tune, delightfully jangly little guitarpop edged with toy piano. "I Feel It All" is only the first of her musical explorations: lo-fi folk, tightly wound piano jazz, delicate keyboard ballads, and some kooky electrofunk.

But Feist also includes some of what she's strongest at , namely subtle pop songs like "Limit To Your Love," full of gentle piano, harp and guitar. And sometimes she goes WAYYYYY into her experimentation zone, like "Honey Honey," which sounds like a more melodious Joanna Newsom, or "Sea Lion Woman," a deliciously mad funky avant-electronic tune. I can hear other electropop "artists" grinding their teeth at this one.

It's hard to eve find a flaw in "Reminder" -- if there's anything to criticize, it's that it doesn't sound very cohesive. But in all other respects, Feist has only grown as a musician. She takes the synth-piano-guitar triad from her previous album, and lets it bloom with greater passion and beauty, not to mention complexity.
