- Customer Reviews:
One of the most successful Canadian bands of the last fifteen years, Sloan has now finished its eighth studio album, Never Hear the End of It -- the first on new US label Yep Roc Records. Yet another Sloan serving of august and finely crafted rock, Never Hear the End of It is also thirty tracks long. You heard me. Thirty. From pop masterpieces like "Who Taught You to Live Like That" (which clocked the highest number of first week downloads in iTunes history upon its Canadian release), to the unforgettable "Listen to the Radio," this album could, for any other band, be close to three perfect records. Throughout their critically lauded career (including a recent tour with The Rolling Stones), Sloan has managed to share songwriting duties between all members and never have a single change in line-up. Records like Never Hear the End of It are the reason Sloan have remained valid for so long.

For variety, have a listen to Patrick's simple yet beautiful melancholy melodies in Listen to the Radio, Jay's piano rocker Who Taught You to Live Like That, Chris's piano ballad Live the Life You're Dreaming Of, Andrew's guitar rocker Living with The Masses, and Patrick's hardcore punk NFXNSCH. And there's plenty more in between. Chris's People Think They Know Me is a pleasant surprise as it is heavy and somewhat angry with some cool guitar playing.
Like most Sloan songs, the tracks generally clock in at under three minutes with a few going a bit longer. There are also some short "bridges" of songs that are only around one minute and connect the longer ones. All four members are here and contributing and singing adding to the variety. After the first couple of spins I found myself wanting to hear at least half the songs again and again, and after a few more listens I wanted to simply enjoy the whole album as a master piece in itself.
The only regrettable point is that this album will probably not go down in history as a monster album. If Sloan were a British or American band and this album was released in 1992 then by now it would be a cult classic and listed as one of the top twenty albums to own of the 90s. Unfortunately, this album will only be appreciated by fans new and old. For an album that is out of its time, an album that only a band like Sloan could do, this is a prize piece of work. I am glad we have Sloan!
they're showing they're mature side of music, but still having fun. the arrangements are complex and not just banging away. a very strong album as a whole. good to be listened start to finish. it's similar to Abby road or Sgt. Pepper how the songs run into each other smoothly. some songs stand out and on their own. "Can't You Figure It Out" and "Last Time In Love" aside from the obvious single "Who Taught You To Live Like That?" are very good songs.
If a Sloan fan, much recommended.
Much recommended for new fans.
Much recommended in General.
the Art work is simple but cool as well.
If you get the chance to see then live- take it! Ive just seen them twice and they are in top form. Sloan are getting better with age!
