Broken Social Scene are incredible. With one solid masterpiece under their belt ("You Forgot It In People"), an excellent B-sides/rarities collection ("Bee Hives"), and a Best Alternative Album Award from the Junos, BSS seem nearly unstoppable. People SHOULD be excited for this band: "You Forgot ..." is quite possibly THE quintessential post-millenial indie rock album (a modern-day "Slanted & Enchanted", anyone?). Who can't forget the raging guitars that opened "KC Accidental", the superb groove of "Pacific Theme", or the genuinely sincere "I Wanna Be Your (...)"? These are all minor masterpieces in their own accord. "Bee Hives" will tide poeple over until their next album, but for real crate diggers, there's the album that got everything started: "Feel Good Lost"
The biggest err one can make is expecting this album to be anything like "Forgot". If anything, it's quite the opposite - no barn-storming guitars, no extreme pace changes, and hell, no vocals! This album has the pure and simple goal of hitting atmosphere - and it does its job incredibly well.
This is an emotional album, pure and simple. Each piece evokes a feeling or mood inside of you - sometimes you just have to wait until the right moment. This album is the soundtrack to your own self-made Volkswagon commercial - driving a road at night with the sunroof down; these are the songs that are in the background. Take the fuzzed-out atmosphere guitar of "Passport Radio" as a good guiding light for the eve. The drums decide to want to dance around a little bit on "Alive in 85", but something like the near-tribal "Stomach Song" comes into play, and your mindset is changed yet again. The band finds melodies in simple-yet-beautiful guitar lines, like a downtempo Explosions in the Sky.

Well to be honest you can't lose yourself in all parts of the CD, and more's the pity. This CD is on the brink of masterpiece that You Forgot It In People achieved, but there are some tracks that ruin the beautiful and ethereal atmosphere the first half establishes and only resumes near the end. My ratings:

1. I Slept With Bonhomme At The CBC: 9/10, mmm what a way to start it, beautiful, mesmorizing, enchanting, etc. etc.

2. Guilty Cubicles: 9/10, it continues, this track blends flawlessly with the previous and continues the beauty.

3. Love And Mathematics: 11/10! Yes it goes off my own scale, my favorite jam song ever, it's like a drum fiesta with guitars swooping and diving around the core drum beats! Best track on the album by far!

4. Passport Radio: 8.5/10, dreamy vocals, dreamy guitars, it's all-around... what's the word... dreamy!

5. Alive In 85: 9/10, very catchy, makes me want to bounce, quite a nice poppy feel to it you can't help but like.

6. Prison Province: 5/10, yuck! I mean... why? They were on a role, they were kicking ass, but this song is the first of the "bad half" of the CD.

7. Blues For Uncle Gibb: 6.5/10, very dark, and not very pleasant. I somewhat enjoy the haunting hermonica, but the rest? No.

8. Stomach Song: 6/10, this song sounds like it emerged from the stomach, so in a way it's fitting. It's grating and annoying.

9. Massbroker: 7.5/10, cheer up, things are getting a little better! While the violin squeeks like a dying animal at the beginning, it gets better toward the end.

10. Feel Good Lost: 7/10, I love the name, but as title tracks go this is just too weird and too short.

11. Last Place: 9.5/10, yes, back in action!

"Feelgood Lost" was the first Broken Social Scene album, but their second "You Forgot It In People" was what really broke this eclectic, smooth band into the limelight. It's less polished and more raw, but the ambience and richness are definitely there.
It starts with the slow, shimmery "I Slept With Bonhomme At The CBC," before shifting into the steady, unexceptional "Guilty Cubicles." A more rock-edged sound appears (the slow-burning "Love and Mathematics"), along with eerie songs (the experimental-sounding "Passport Radio" and too-quiet "Blues for Uncle Gibb") and melodious pop (the stately "Alive in 85," bouncy "Cranley's Gonna Make It").
The sound of "Feelgood Lost" is a lot less polished and complex than their second album. But don't be deceived -- this is no demo or B-side album. It's just a group that hadn't fully come into bloom yet. There's rock, there's pop, there's even the murmuring, sweeping experimental soud of "Passport Radio," which sounds like the soundtrack to a surrealist computer-animated movie.
Violins, keyboard and synthesizers meld together seamlessly from the very start, with faintly strumming guitars and steady percussion underneath it. There's even a bit of fuzz guitar at the end of "Love and Mathetmatics." The funny thing about Broken Social Scene is how the music all seems to meld together into one big shimmering whole, especially in the slower, softer numbers.
Sweet, silvery atmospheric pop is the staple of Broken Social Scene, and their first album lives up magnificently to that. It's a bit rougher, but the spirit of it is still there. "Feelgood Lost" isn't lost anymore...
