16-11-2011 // Album: Feist - Metals

Think it's 2 weeks ago now that I received my copy of Metals, the highly praised new album by Feist (beautiful website, you should check it out!). As always I am slow with my review of the album, basically because I don’t see the point in it. Anyone remotely interested in 2011s music will have read a review on this album and it was probably a positive one, cuz I don’t think I’ve read any bad review yet. Although I make a habit of going against the grain, I can only agree with the rest of the world on this one. This is a beautiful album.

The first few spins I had to get used to it a little and I was expecting it perhaps to be too slow for me, but I can honestly say that I love every moment on it. I listen on a daily bases and I have never been bored or annoyed by one bit. It would be a possible Best of 2011-album, but the not being annoyed by it actually makes this less inspiring than the other competitors. The other great albums of the year took time to win me over, Helplessness Blues by Fleet Foxes being the best example here, I really had to force that album upon myself a few times. Eventually it won me over and I am completely in love with it and there is a fair chance this is the album that has received the most airtime all year @pluginbabynl HQ.

Metals however was pretty brilliant from the 3rd spin I gave it & has continued to stay brilliant. It makes me wonder though, if I will still love it as intense in a few months, as I do now. Everyone knows that love and appreciation grows if something takes more time and effort, I’m not sure this also counts for albums, as I can not tell the future, but it’s a good thing I still have a few weeks left to decide on this matter. For now, I can only agree with blogs and magazines around the globe, this is Feist’s best album (so far) and she will definately score high on year lists. As she should!
