I couldn't find a page for Metric, so I thought I would start one.

There new album Fantasies is streaming on there myspace page.

http://myspace.com/metricband

So far it sounds pretty amazing. :smt023

I quite like Metric.

Even though I once got a dismissive look off Emily Haines (is that right) for eyeing her up "seductively", before I actually realised it was her.

I don't blame you man, I would have done the same thing. :wink:

Ha ha.

I like the Gimme Sympathy video. It's true, her guitar 'miming' skills need work.

I love their new album, and can't believe I'd never heard of them before.

HMV were playing the new album instore this week; I didn't twig who it was for a while. 'Tis very good, probably better overall than the last one. And the single is just brilliant, even if I thought it was called Like A Hammer :roll: :lol:

EG.

Their new album is fantastic. The tunes are far more memorable than those on the last album. A much bigger sound and more pop hooks than I was expecting. Emily Haines is a modern day Debbi Harry if anyone is.

I agree "Fantasies" is Metric's best album to date. :smt023

I thought it would be hard for them to top "Live It Out", which was one of my favorite albums of 2005, but they have.

I'm sure "Fantasies" will end up being one of my favorite albums this year. :D

Just stumbled across them now because apparently I should like them if I like Jenny Lewis according to Last FM. :lol:

But yeah good, different to Jenny Lewis ( :roll: ) , listening to Fantasies and only 2 tracks in. :D

They're nothing much like Jenny Lewis at all! :lol:

I really should investigate this new album.

I'd love to see Metric in London but I don't have any Metric-loving friends!
