Biography

So yeah, it’s been five years since the last Broken Social Scene album, but it also hasn’t. In the time that’s elapsed since the release of 2005’s self-titled opus, we were more than tided over by the 2007 release of founding member Kevin Drew’s solo album, Spirit If…, followed a few months later by co-founder Brendan Canning’s own solo set, Something ...

Editorial Reviews

2010 release, the first Broken Social Scene record following the acclaimed Broken Social Scene Presents series. As a core six-piece who had spent most of 2007 and 2008 on the road, Drew, Canning, Spearin, Whiteman, Goldberg and Peroff spent early 2009 working on new material in Toronto. The pairing down of the band's massive personnel list for the first time proved extremely fruitful; they created spacious songs written as a band by a band, resulting in more cohesive, melody-driven compositions than previous BSS output. Recording both in Toronto and Chicago, and working with producer John McEntire, they found a fresh perspective on their own sound. The album features guest turns by BSS alumni: Leslie Feist, Amy Millan and Evan Cranley of Stars, Emily Haines and Jimmy Shaw of Metric, Jason Collett, Ohad Benchetrit of Do Make Say Think and Years, John Crossingham, Marty Kinack, Leon Kingstone and Julie Penner.

Get a great pair of headphones, and take a listen.
Joseph Jenks
Everything about it, from the sounds, the lyrics, the emotions & moods it creates, it's absolutely fantastic.
Jason Miles
Some of the songs are very catchy and some are more on the melancholy side.

Not a fan of song-by-song reviews, so I'll keep this brief. Anybody who is a fan of Broken Social Scene knows that their records are a true stylistic mash. You hear a little bit of everything from BSS, but they're always tight and on-point when writing songs. The musicians are all talented players, so you can always count on a well-performed record, but Forgiveness is the first BSS album in a long while to scale back the band, and frankly, I think it benefits from that. Forgiveness recalls the genius of You Forgot It In People, with songs like All to All summoning the heartfelt melodrama of one of BSS's best songs, Anthems of a Seventeen Year-Old Girl. True to BSS form, the album is a blend of pop songwriting and extended instrumental jamming, and as always, the songs are pertinent, topical, and sincere. Another great record for 2010, without a doubt, and the best BSS album in quite a while.

Forgiveness Rock Record is what music should sound like. I am not speaking about the genre, the vocal talent, or even the choice of instruments and song structure. They have taken eveything beautiful about their past releases, and illuminated it in every way imaginable.

(Feel Good Lost was and instrumental mind trip that showed a lot of potential. You Forgot It In People was just as trippy but with lyrics and emotion that made it possible to sit through multiple listens. It even had gems like Cause=Time, Almost Crimes, and the eerie, yet unforgetable Anthems. Broken Social Scene (ST) was all over the place, and not exactly in a good way. It felt rushed and tried way to hard not seperate itself from any identity at all.)

Forgiveness Rock Record is the result of 3 trips to the plastic surgeon with extensive work at the gym in between. They have shaved all the unwanted (noise at times) 4-5 minute gloomy, archaic instrumentals between vocals. Don't get me wrong, I love ambient music, but only when it fits and its necessary. The interludes (not seperated by individual tracks) arent unwelcomed here like they were in previous efforts. I find myself deciding to allow the instrumental interludes to play through as a means to prepare myself for the next brillant song.

Highlights on the record include:

World Sick - The album opens with a nearly 7 minute long triumph of music. Does an amazing job pulling the listner in and almost not wanting to move on.

Chase Scene - The second song on the album is just as, if not more, tasteful than the first. Extremly accessable also.

Art House Director - This song is reminesant of older BSS, and reminds you they haven't changed a bit.

I haven't been this excited about an album in years. When I'm away from it, I miss it & can't wait to hear it again. Everything about it, from the sounds, the lyrics, the emotions & moods it creates, it's absolutely fantastic. I've been a Tortoise / Johnny Mcentyre fan for a long time time & Johnny's production certainly has something to do w/ my love for this album, but this is my first Broken Social Scene record & it's officially got me hooked. It's mellow with movement, gentle but still keeps me grooving to it. Its got interesting instrumentation a wide variety of songs, great production.... I'll just stop. buy it. support some great music.

I'm very critical when it comes to modern indie rock. I feel like a lot of bands like to slip by on fads, cookie cutter copies and cornball music that is very for-the-moment (basically, music we'll look back on and laugh at). Broken Social Scene is not one of those bands. Everything I've heard them put out has been fresh yet classic sounding. Aside from a few creative decisions made here and there, I'd say this album is a good example of music that was made to last.

Track by track:

"World Sick" - The first song I heard from this album, thanks to the people at stereogum. This brought back the classic sound that I felt was missing from the last two "Broken Social Scene Presents..." albums. (I know a lot of people will disagree with me here, but I much prefer the collective band releases over the Kevin Drew/Brendan Canning semi-solo affairs.) Anyway, this song is the perfect introduction to an epic album. (10/10)

"Chase Scene" - I still don't know if I'm completely sold on this song. The synths and drumming pattern is very current and fits in nicely with the popular indie trends but that is also the problem. It might sound good to some this year but who knows what we'll think in 2011. (5/10)

"Texico Bitches" - Probably the best song title on the album - a toe-tapper with a great hook. The vocals, instrumentation, and the Yoshimi-style yelps in the background make this an instantly likable track with a few twists and turns. (9/10)

"Forced to Love" - The verse is pretty typical BSS (which is a good thing), then the chorus explodes as they tend to do on most of the songs this band puts out. Overall, a catchy song but there's definitely better stuff to be heard on the album.
