Grow Up and Blow Away was the first recorded album by indie rock band Metric. The album was recorded in 2001, but delayed for years by their record label. As the years passed, the band's sound changed to the point where they no longer felt the album would be what the fans expected to hear, so Metric recorded a completely new album, Old World Underground, Where Are You Now?, and released that instead.

I might add to the 'fine' fellow below.. that I don't conform to anything. Quite the opposite really. I look for honesty, conviction, originality, and PASSION in music - no matter the genre. And this is the ticket.. this fellow 'sean' makes me laugh whole-heartedly. He clearly does not know what he's talking about.. commenting on something he simply has no comprehension of. I encourage you to check out his other 'fine' posts to get a real appreciation of where he's coming from...
This release has a slightly different track listing then the old bootlegs, losing a few tracks here while also gaining a few others there, and the running order is almost completely shuffled around. Comparing the tracks off this disc with the bootleg copies of those same songs reveals that a bit of studio work has been done to polish up these old tracks a bit, nothing drastic but just slightly different mixes and superior mastering.
If you're a fan, then why are you still reading this review instead of buying this album right now? It is a bit different from their signiture sound as found on their other releases to date, but thee's no denying that it still matches up with the band's consistent high quality production and excellent songcraft.
