Product Description

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.

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

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 ›

tegan and sara have annoyed me. I thought I was completely over my girls w/ guitars and heart-felt lyrics stage of my life and expected not to like them at all. after having a friend play 'if i was you' and (the abyssmally titled) 'this business of art' nonstop for months, i became hooked. so unfair. regardless, these girls know how to write some killer hooks and pretty catchy rock songs with great lyrics. though some songs are better than others, the album makes me bounce shamelessly around my apartment, plus it comes w/ copies of their videos and tour footage (bonus). in general, i prefer their upbeat songs, but if you dig ballads, they have some decent ones on this album. though the only people i know who like them (besides me) are big ferrick and ani fans, I hear tegan and sara are quite popular in canada. and yeah, canada may make you think of flannel and celine dion, but its cooler than you think, with neil young, gay marriage and universal health care. and like their homeland, tegan and sara are cooler than I would have thought. go ahead, give 'em a listen (their website has clips you can listen to) and support some up and coming young musicians.

i say in the title, re-charge your batteries for two reasons:
1. you will listen to this album over and over again on your diskman while on the bus, the train, really anyform of public transport.
AND
2. listening to the album "If it was you" will re-charge your inner batteries
a combination of rough and fine, harsh and sweet- tegan and sara are the best duo working from one extreme to another. Sara has stated in many interivews, "we compliment eachother." This feeling of completion is more evident in live shows but even on the album, you can feel the connection the singers make with eachother and yourself.
Upon listening to their 'second' album, you will reflect on the lyrics and think "did they write them?!" they're so amazing, its surprising to find out that they write all of their songs.
tegan and sara state in Underwater:"theres more to life than love and being together." This line alone sucessfully depicts the depth they go to in each song, making every song on the album memorable.
and as they say in the cover of their single "I hear noises"
"There is no cure for teganandsara-itis;" my only response is i dont want a cure, the ride of following tegan and sara is too enjoyable.
