Editorial Reviews

Heartthrob, the highly anticipated follow-up to Sainthood, gives us Tegan and Sara in their superhero tights and capes, ready to conquer the pop universe, and the new outfits suit them just as well as their old-school jeans and T-shirts.

Biography

It’s hard to have a long career in pop music. Just ask all the one-hit wonders and sophomore slumpers, all the sure things who turned out to be yesterday’s news. It’s hard to keep a band together, hard to hold the fans’ attention. And it’s really, really hard to keep writing good songs, record after record, year after year.

Only a relative handful of artists ... Read more in Amazon's Tegan & Sara Store

First let me say I'm not your typical Tegan and Sara fan. I'm an old 48 year old guy who worshiped Kiss and Bruce Springsteen growing up and still do. My daughter who is an amazing musician in her own right told me about them. She is also a gay teen and I was very impressed how T&S were such a postive influence in her life so I took a listen.

I have to say I was instantly hooked. My first introduction was the song "Where Does the Good Go" and then ran to Barnes & Nobel and bought the Con. I was so impressed how poetic their lyrics were and played that CD endlessly in my car. My daughter and her girlfriend thought it was so cute how I became such a big fan.

When Sainthood came out, I rushed to buy it and noticed how different it was from the Con. However, I liked it just as much and realized how versatile T&S was.

So here comes Heartthrob in all its glory and I instantly had flashbacks of Tiger Beat magazine when I saw the CD cover. I had a strong feeling these amazing artists were flexing their artistic muscles once again.

What the Con was to teenage angst and finding oneself through trials and tribulations, Heartthrob feels more like falling in love and falling out of love but without the self examination and more of the emotional surface feelings that come with strong crushes and new found love. Although my nature is to be a little OCD, I know I am going to be obsessed with this album. The music is fun, catchy and intelligent. In one sentence I would say Tegan and Sara go mainstream and still seem cool and intelligent.

As a hardcore Tegan and Sara fan, I easily admit that first exposure to Heartthrob might come quite as a shock to the system (as the appropriate coda suggests). However, one should dwell on what's going beneath the surface before jumping to a biased conclusion. Yes, the album is almost devoid of guitars that have always been central to Quin sisters' music and yes, overpowering synthesizers and keys unapologetically invade each track like any other pop tunes these days but the signs of shifting toward a more pop friendly sound have been there since "So Jealous". And "Heartthrob" is indeed a pop album. That being said, what distinguishes Tegan and Sara's "Heartthrob" from other contemporary pop albums is its genuine-personal-deep lyrics and strong vocals that easily triumphs the music genre and makes you appreciate the concept and execution of the art it entails. In other words, the album does not try to be catchy for the sake of being catchy, it is catchy to serve the emotional ride that the sisters are expressing. That's why "Heartthrob" is not only a powerful pop album but it is also accessible, relatable and heartfelt. Songs like " Goodbye, Goodbye" (You never knew me, never ever saw me like they did) and "I am Not Your Hero" (Sometimes it feels like I am all that they've got, it's so hard to know I'm not what they want) are perfect examples of pop music at its best in a way that both tracks are sanguine indicators of a revitalized genre. "How Come You Don't Want Me" and "I'm All Messed Up" are undoubtedly among the best songs in Tegan and Sara discography with personal lyrics and amazing vocals.Read more ›

I'm officially obsessed with this album. I've been a T&S fan for a long time, and I was a little nervous when I heard they went pop with this album. But it definitely panned out! I love every song!

Ok, keeping things short... I've listened to Tegan and Sara for a while, never mind what I think is their best work, etc. If you are new to Tegan and Sara, this is as good place to start as any. Their production here is very similar to that of Sainthood (2009), but without the raw punk sound. This is more like Madonna than The Cure, but still very 80's. They keep trending towards more polished pop production, and I like that this album is bold and daring. Whereas people thought their last album was on the fence between new and old, this album doesn't leave much room to continue the trend unless they go towards trance or electronica, which I don't see happening.

I can say that I never completely bought into the recording style of their earlier work. If you want something that sounds professional, revert back to So Jealous, The Con or even Sainthood. If its too loud, you're too old... This album is certainly aimed at the partying/clubbing crowd, and it is only truly enjoyable at fairly high volume!! For veteran fans on the fence, if Tegan and Sara made a dance record, this would be it. I am not one to debate the loudness trend of music. Others can debate if the production is too polished. I feel that this new album is catchy and traditional; well within Tegan and Sara's back-catalog of songwriting styles yet loud and in your face, polished, eager, aiming to please. C'mon people, this kind of music is supposed to be about fun. This is exactly what Tegan and Sara have delivered!!

The best way I can describe the album is it seems to be very nearly sarcastic at times, honest and heartfelt at others; a concept album of raw emotion.... and I can't stop listening to it.

Bonus: The record is pricey but it comes with a CD copy...
