Broken Social Scene Presents: Kevin Drew Spirit If ... · Kanye West Graduation · Ani DiFranco Canon

Canadian Baroque-pop super group Broken Social Scene has not put out a new album. BSS co-founder Kevin Drew has ... with 23 contributing musicians, including members of BSS (hence the "presents"). But Spirit If ... is Drew's baby. Despite massive collaborative efforts, Drew wrote or co-wrote all the songs, sang lead vocals, played various instruments, produced the album and created the album art. Gives one the impression BSS wasn't satisfying his creative urge. Spirit If ... is a masterful piece of genre-blending art, taking the elements that made BSS a hit and adding a more personal, self-sacrificing tone. It's a satisfying rock album that (thankfully) doesn't aim to be anything but. [AD]
