Broken Social Scene: Tightening Up The Experiment

On their new Forgiveness Rock Record, the experimental Canadian guitar rock collective Broken Social Scene are tighter than they've ever sounded. Teaming with former Tortoise drummer and sound engineer John McEntire—a man with a masterfully vivid sonic palette—the band has somehow recorded their most lyric- and song-oriented album to date. The post-rock flourishes and textures the band and McEntire are known for are all present, they're just encapsulated within a polished and tightly woven structure—one called pop music. And Broken Social Scene do it extraordinarily well.
