Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Feist is the solo project of Canada's Leslie Feist, a prolific artist who has also played in one capacity or another with Broken Social Scene, Kings of Convenience and half a dozen other bands. The Reminder, her third release, comes from the same well of quiet, appealing songwriting, and delicate vocalizations that made 2004's Let It Die such a sweet treat. This one is a bit more hushed and ballad heavy, closer to Cat Power than Peaches (with whom Feist has also worked with in the past) but maintains an indie-minded blend of confessional pop, jazzy folk, and lo-fi torch songs. The comparatively upbeat single "My Moon My Man" splits her voice off into unexpected harmonies, just dissonant enough to stick in your head. It's hard to predict where her melodies are going to end up; "Brandy Alexander" starts with a simple snap-pulse, and gradually unfolds into a cathartic chorus of sweeping vocal overlays. Throughout, the record profits from a simple, unfussy aesthetic that keeps the production minimal and the emphasis squarely on Feist's cracking, wistful vibrato. Everything sounds deliberate, but not obsessed over, like an e-mailed wedding invitation. It's a low-pressure vibe, welcoming and content to linger. And linger you will. --Matthew Cooke

4.0 out of 5 stars Leslie comes into her own as a songwriter June 13, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The new album "The Reminder" by Canadian gal Leslie Feist is receiving mixed critical reviews, but some are calling it the best pop music album so far this year. I ordered it, and my take on it is also mixed, in this sense: Feist is a great songwriter, and this album is exhibit one. Not all of the songs are great, but many of them achieve greatness. Feist's previous album also contained great songs (and some less compelling material), but only about half of them were Feist originals. Here, almost everything is Feist-penned.

Remember the "1234" Busby Berkely-inspired video of Feist from Youtube, that people seemed to enjoy so much? If you haven't seen it, check it out -- it is pure joy wrapped in a 3 minute package. That song is also a minor musical masterpiece, with guitar, banjo, a chorus of voices, quiet bits, loud joyful bits -- put together in a way that things are always changing enough to keep the ear from being bored at any time.

When I think of the Beatles work, or XTC, or James Taylor, Sting, Paul Simon, I think of music that is put together in a very entertaining and craftsmanlike way. A primitive like Bob Dylan (don't get me wrong, I love a lot of what Bob has done, but it is musically primitive) will take a simple three chord verse, then repeat it over and over with different lyrics. The greatest songwriters make music that builds, crescendos, then rolls back, with themes and variations, and little musical bridges (or "middle eights," as the Beatles used to call them). Feist is writing music like that, at least some of the time.

Oh, there are a few quieter numbers that almost approach dirges. I'm not much fond of those.

5.0 out of 5 stars Canadian indie rock goddess September 25, 2007
Format:MP3 Music
As a Canadian living in the US, I'm always trying to convince people of why Canadian indie rock is so great. Not a tough sell with Feist's The Reminder, featuring the artist in top form. Both this album and her first album, Let It Die, demonstrate Feist's ability to effortlessly sound like anything she wants to, whether it's 70s disco or folksy pop song. Regardless, she infuses all her music with a sounds that's uniquely Feist-y and difficult to pin down.

PS: First review of this album on Amazon! Woot!

5.0 out of 5 stars Feist's 'The Reminder' Is An Instant Classic May 11, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Feist's latest collection of songs, 'The Reminder,' makes a gorgeous contribution to 2007's currently lackluster soundscape and proves a worthy sophomore successor to her stunning 2004 breakthrough, 'Let It Die.' Gifted with (and, I suspect, slyly aware of possessing) one of the most expressive voices in pop music today, occasionally evoking traces of Billie Holiday, Kate Bush, Joni Mitchell, Maria Muldaur and even Melanie at her delicate, playful best, Feist is blessed with an exquisite knack for unpredictable melodies and smart hooks, the ability to turn a clever phrase and an irresistably sexy persona blending the insouciant pout of Julie Christie with the formidably confident appeal of Chrissie Hynde, all captured in a package of impeccable arrangements and thoughtful production.

Although the album art suggests an early post-modern romantic minimalism and the mix includes more primitive electronic noodling snaking through the tracks, this collection, unlike her previous work, feels less like a perfect, forgotten pop-soul artifact from 1980, with fresher textures and more ambitious stabs at different styles than those featured on 'Let It Die.' There is a stronger, more aggressive verve to the songs that attempt to rock, such as "I Feel It All" (all breathless, driving passion and ringing fills)," "Past In Present" (tweaking both vintage guitar rock and girl-group influences to best Sheryl Crow at her own derivative game) and even reviving the traditional Nina Simone vehicle, "Sea Lion Woman" (here featuring a catchy, early new-wave vibe and stellar siren guitar wail at the breaks).

5.0 out of 5 stars Utterly Enchanting, My Favorite Album of 2007 September 30, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I heard Feist's first album "Let It Die" just a few months before "The Reminder" came out. Let It Die was a masterpiece that established Feist as a legitimate and talented artist outside of her work with Broken Social Scene. The Reminder is a further step in that direction, and in my opinion, one of the best albums of 2007. Artfully crafted with a wide variety of instruments and musical arrangements, this album covers a vast array of topics such as childhood innocence, the fleeting feelings of love and loss, and modern womanhood. The tracks are all delivered with Feist's wistful, honeylike voice and pleasant, catchy musical arrangements that are truly unique among modern indie songstresses.

Feist currently occupies a musical domain that is entirely her own. She was a major member of the Canadian independent music collective Broken Social Scene, and has lived in France for the past several years. Formerly a punk singer in her teenage years, and now a Candian-French indie rock chanteuse. There's no perfect way to describe Feist; her unique style is best understood by listening to her albums. This has been one of the top sellers on Amazon for several months now. In ten years, I am certain that this will be considered one of the most relevant albums of this time period. Feist is changing the way people think about pop music. One of the top tags for this product is Bjork, and Feist has that same pioneering spirit, although she expresses it in a form much more accessible to listeners. Just buy this album - it'll be ten dollars well spent.
