CD Review: Feist
|The Reminder Cherrytree/Interscope |
Music ••• Sound •••½
As with Crow, whose admirably far-ranging music never gives me a clear sense of an artistic self, Feist seems to be an almost pomo case study of form over content. Not that there's anything wrong with being eclectic, of course. But after a while, all the pleasing-to-the-ears sounds of folk, rock, and jazz flitting about her songs from track to track on The Reminder simply add up to a frustratingly incomplete picture of just who she is and what she's up to.
