Metric's SYNTHETICA begins with "Artificial Nocturne." It's one of my favorite tracks on the album, and it begins a solid album on an interesting note. Vocalist Emily Haines begins with the line "I'm just as f***ed up as they say...", continuing Metric semi-rebellious attitude toward convention. For two minutes, the song is sustained by Haines' beautiful vocals and distortion before giving way to more aggressive, propulsive rhythms.

It feels like new territory for Metric, and it's a great listen. Unfortunately, the rest of the album isn't quite as innovative as this opening track, but it's a solid entry into the band's discography. Listeners who enjoy this track are encouraged to check out the band's full-length SYNTHETICA.

The sound of this song is amazing! Amazing distortion sounds and beat, and interesting lyrics.

Unfortunately they drop the F-Bomb a lot so this is not a song I can/will share with friends, and I cannot play it aloud (at least not in places I choose to frequent). That's very unfortunate. I wish there were a censored/radio-worthy version out there somewhere.

Though I'm amused imagining the sort of response this request would provoke. I know almost nothing about Metric so I can only guess about whether their response would be good-natured or vicious... but I've seen enough from their most vocal fans to assume that I'll be thrashed for the sin of asking for a non-profane radio edit. Bring it. :D
