5.0 out of 5 stars The Conquering Heroes of 2008 December 16, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Mother Mother's sophomore effort is the finest installment in the indie-rock canon since Yoshimi battled the pink robots. O My Heart glistens with meticulous production, thrills you with its unbelieveable attention to harmonic detail, and punishes you for thinking it was going to go in any direction other than where it chooses. Mother Mother jumps styles like it is their job, keeping the listener on his toes while never alientating him. "Bodies" and "Ghosting" are phenominal album tracks, while the title track is an appropriate lead single. The real gems, however, come in the album's most anachronistic tracks: "Hayloft" a churning, skeletal crunch pop tune that reminds you the blood still flows, and "Arms Tonight" a sickly sweet pop tune that ruminates on death as it takes you back to romantic high school summers. More than arguably the finest offering of any musical act of 2008, popular or independent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pleasantly Surprised August 19, 2009
Format:Audio CD
I bought this album after only hearing "Body of Years" a couple times on the radio, I thought that the album would have 1 or 2 other great songs and the rest might eventually grow on me, boy was I wrong. I was instantly addicted to it and the CD has only left the CD player in my car once (to be ripped onto my computer).

The band cleverly manages to disguise their dark and disturbing lyrics with catchy riffs and up tempo, often cheery beats. One of the things that makes this album so great is that you get something new with every song. Not only are the songs vastly different from one another, but the band is able to effortlessly speed up or slow down the tempo in any given song, which means you really have to listen to them in their entirety to get the full effect. With their vast musical instrument repertoire (similar to Arcade Fire), and the harmonizing trio of vocals they seem to have unlimited potential. If marketed correctly these guys could be Canada's next Metric.

Some standout songs: O My Heart, Body of Years, Body, Hayloft, Wrecking Ball, Arms Tonite.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my all-time top 10 August 25, 2009
By L. Pike
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I am always looking for something fresh and new but it seems always to be elusive. Mother Mother's O My Heart is the first new disc I've added in years that I just can't stop listening to it. Every song is great from start to finish and there's so much diversity throughout the album that it never gets boring. The lyrics are as far from formulaic as you can get and I find I have to know what every word is as the stories they tell are captivating. After owning this disc a relatively short time, I think it is one of my top 10 all-time favorites. I bought Touch Up, the band's first effort, after owning Oh My Heart and feel they were in the learning phase on that first disc. But on this second contribution they got it just right. Perhaps even perfect.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this band January 13, 2009
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I don't know why, but I listen to this album over and over. After hearing "Oh My Heart" I jetted over to eMusic to see if they had the album and they did. One of my current absolute favorites. Catchy hooks, fun beats, interesting stories. I keep thinking that at some point I'll hear everything the record has to offer, but I keep loading it up in my player.

Not as diverse and interesting as The New Pornographers, but more up tempo and 'jazzy'. If you liked The New Pornographers "Challenger" then you should like this. Maybe more so.

5.0 out of 5 stars Body is Excellent Song August 19, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I love Mother Mother. They could pound spoons on a rock and I'd still adore them. When I first downloaded the album I thought he was singing "piles of ears" and I thought, this is very Game of Thrones. I know now it's "years."

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible band, incredible album March 25, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I don't know of another band making new music today that is bringing as much creativity to the table as Mother Mother. Dainty harmony driven pop swerves wildly into driving, angular alt rock, all underpinned by a sense of humor that won't quit. Take a chance on this band. you won't be disappointed.

I compared the prices of this album on Itunes, and it couldn't beat amazon's great price for the MP3 download. I love this band and the price!
