Music is really funny... many reviews will say "Band X is the greatest band out there. I don't see why people just don't like Band X?" Well, one problem is the rate of exposure "Band X" receives.
Take for example, Buffalo New York. The inhabitants of Buffalo are blessed with the good fortune of being able to tune in both Buffalo stations and stations eminating from Canada. Now, Canadian stations like CFNY 102.1 had been playing the Tragically Hip for years. Those lucky few who had the inclination to tune into those Canadian stations were treated to hear the Tragically Hip.
Now, Buffalo stations play The Hip and when the Hip is in town, hold themselves out as "The Hip Station." The lesson? If you come across a review of a band you never heard of and people say "Band X is the best out there!" You should give Band X a try.
That is what many of my closest friends did when I put them on to the Tragically Hip's "Day For Night."
"Day For Night" is a rarity in music - a COMPLETE ALBUM that flows from beginning to end. There is a logical progression of sonic and emotional energy to the album. You would swear that it is possible that some songs were written around a word picked out at random from the dictionary (See,"Apartment Song" from the Hip's album "Trouble at the Hen House" for a possible example - the random word there being "esthete").
I find "Day For Night" to be the easiest Tragically Hip album to reccomend and it is that rare piece of music that I find can be almost universally recommended.
In short, if you are reading this, you should seriously think about either buying this album or somehow getting your hands on this album so that once you listen to it, you would buy it.

From the opening, swelling moments of "Grace, Too", to the final, driving chords of "Impossibilium", the Tragically Hip capture moments of sheer sonic majesty throughout this, their greatest album, and one of the very best albums of its decade. The centerpiece, "Nautical Disaster", captures in music the absolute manic psychosis of a nightmare with lucidity seemingly impossible in any other medium. "Grace, Too" captures Gord Downie's most vulnerable yet defiant vocal performance on record, and the amazing ascending-then-descending guitar and bass riff rivals any in rock history. "Scared" is hauntingly beautiful; simple, poetic, yet chilling. "Titanic Terrarium" carries a similar vibe, yet with a more overtly ominous tone. Perhaps the only misstep is the slightly vapid "An Inch An Hour", but that only stands out because every single other song on the record is just so incredibly strong that even a slightly less than stellar effort strikes the ear as impure. The Hip may be one of music's best kept secrets, their albums diamonds in an ever-increasing rough, and 'Day For Night' sparkles most brightly. Do yourself a favor and buy this album!

Maybe one of the best albums ever? I've owned it since it was released, when I bought it a record store, that I'm not sure exist anymore. Bought this as a gift to a brother, who loved it as well. Not a bad track on it. Definitive Hip.

While Day for Night isn't my favorite Hip album, I do like it. They are fairly consistent in their sound and songs and it's really enjoyable to listen to. So why the 4* instead of 5? I know they can do better. I've heard it.

Day for Night offers 14 songs. There's a kind of theme of tragedy going throughout with songs such as Daredevil, Fire in the Hole, Nautical disaster (sic), Thugs and Emergency. Sure, it's good and you'll likely enjoy it, but I think you'll also find out they could have done better.

This is the singularly most important album I have ever heard. I am a huge HIP fan and this set is the peak of their greatness. I agree with the other reviewers that this is the rarest of albums in that you must listen to it in its entirety. Very seldom does a set come along that must be experienced as a whole. I compare this opus to "Dark Side" by Pink Floyd or "Sgt. Pepper" by The Beatles in that it's separate tracks are awesome but the whole fifty-five minutes is the true gift. The band could perform this set live in its entirety in a concert and the audience would not be disappointed. "Grace Too" is the best live song I have ever experienced and "Thugs" and "Nautical Disaster" are on my top ten greatest songs of all time. This is the greatest gift that any Canadian band has given to the world. I am proud to say that my native country Canada spawned the best live band I have seen (ten times). The Hip rule!

This CD of "The Tragically Hip" is A mid 1990's grunge and alternative rock CD, that came out in (1995). This CD does have some great songs on it in my opinion, The music in this album sounds just like a lot of today's new alternative rock music. I recommend this grunge album to anyone who likes music of the 90's era as well as a today alternative rock fan. I like this album enough to give it 5 stars. This music on here is all good in my opinion. I recommend buying this Tragically Hip album for you or someone you know. it is their 5th studio album and according to the current Wikipedia about this album, It is the band's first album or their's to debut at #1 on the Canadian Albums Chart

this album has 14 songs on it and is almost 1 hour long
