Broken Social Scene

Forgiveness Rock Record

Forgiveness Rock Record is just destined to spark heated debates over its standout track. And likely already has. Throughout it, the massive, outrageously talented Toronto-based collective set the indie-rock bar high – the songs are diverse, cleverly constructed, and flat-out exciting, rivaling anything Broken Social Scene have served up in the past.

Coming in at just under seven minutes, nebulous and epic album starter “World Sick” will surely garner some favourite track votes, while the Yankee Hotel Foxtrot-worthy “Texico Bitches” might score a few noms. Expect mischievous, horn-driven “Art House Director” to be fiercely defended and to go up against “Meet Me in the Basement”, an urgent, explosive instrumental that might get the nod for outstanding indie-instrumental of 2010.

With stellar releases already this month from indie heavyweights The New Pornographers, The National, LCD Soundsystem, and now Broken Social Scene, May 2010 is surely spoiling us.

No complaints here.
