Product Description

Product Description

Let It Die is very much a voice album in close-up, eye-to-eye and ear-to-ear. Carefully pieced together around Feist's seductive voice, the album forms the missing link between ye old folk (storytelling), the Brill building era (the quest for the hook), doo-wop (melody and mood) and minimal modern pop arrangements. Like line drawings as opposed to detailed paintings, these songs leave you space to fill in the emotional blanks. Its lack of complication makes Let It Die standout from much of today's musical offerings; put simply, a beautiful slice of sonic escapism to illustrate and interrupt the little moments that together tell us stories.

Feist's own compositions belogn firmly in the kooky/indie songwriters camp. her vocals, on the other hand, belong in the classic jazz/pop camp. Imagine a place somewhere between The Cardigans and Norah Jones and you'll be close to how she sounds. Musically it's all kept quite simple with guitar and inventive percussion staying playfully in the background. Producer Chilly Gonzales has done a wonderful job here, though he could have been a lot more heavy handed considering his own material.
So, whilst the standout track is Feist's own, glorious "Mushaboom" the second half of the album consists of some excellent covers. She makes each and every one of them her own, from The Bee Gees "(Love You) Inside and Out", through Ron Sexsmith's "Secret Heart" to old Vocal Jazz standard "Now at Last" not to mention the others.
Whether or not this release is a commercial success, it is already a resounding success that it can be released in today's unsure musical industry. Simply fantastic.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting hybrid of old genres 17 Aug 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this after reading a good review in a rock mag, and an amazon review that stated that she sounded a bit like PJ Harvey. Feist sounds nothing like PJH to me (her voice is too pretty), and NOTHING like Norah Jones, but the album was not disappointing. Her voice is soft, stunning; a french-ballad voice over a funky 70's vibe on some songs. She does sound like a heavier Keren Ann,(another female french crossover) or a lighter Eva Cassidy. 'One Evening' and 'Inside and Out' sounds VERY Bee Gee-ish, but are captivating. This album also has very 60's sounds; organs, snapping fingers... There are a few french songs; some are ballads, some are swingy numbers. This album is so eclectic. It might not suit everyone. Let's say I was extremely, but pleasantly surprised. If you hate 70's/disco/folk/ballad... don't buy this. If you love female singer-songwriters with talent, buy it. This album is very catchy and well written. It deserves to be heard!

4.0 out of 5 stars MAGICAL 16 July 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I bought this album off the back of reading some amazing reviews and was not dissappointed. It is absolutely beautiful. A little bit of magic. Favourite tracks are Mushaboom, One Evening, Secret Heart and Inside and Out. Feist has a voice that is like honey and the more I have listened to the album, the more it has grown on me. I have never written a review for any album I have bought before from amazon but Let It Die compelled me to spread the word!

5.0 out of 5 stars still fantastic in 2005 18 Feb 2005
Format:Audio CD
I felt compelled to writing this review as it is such a great album. I am not often given to awarding 5 stars as so many reviews are done in haste and use the 5 stars to vindicate the purchaser rather than reflect the strength of the recording.
I discovered this last year when on holiday and it has been a constant since then, and it came into its' own when we were in Paris towards the end of the year where the album was recorded and it just fit so well and captured our hearts. There are definitely several sides to the album: laid back; 70's groove; french chanson all combining to make it varied and interesting. It is leftfield enough in a Beth Orton way to be cool but not edgy in a PJ Harvey way to be uncomfortable and the Bee Gees cover is superb. Personal favourite is Mushaboom which is sublime. Her voice is great and choice of songs serve to give it longevity
She is touring soon and I recommend trying to catch her live, or at least doing yourself a favour and buying this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Saddest Part Is That It Ends 28 April 2006
By Phill
Format:Audio CD
Canada has churned out some great talent over the years Joni Mitchell,Alanis Morissette,Esthero,Nelly Furtado,Glenn Lewis & Deborah Cox to name a few. Feist is my lastest discovery after hearing the title track on a CD i found i loved the womans voice and it took me well over 2 months to track down who this she was. "Let It Die" is a very introvertive and delicate album that has an enchanting and alluring charm to it that makes you feel calm and at ease.

1.Gatekeeper - This like many other songs it's very short the song itself has a somewhat french feel to it and seen as it was recorded in Paris the vibe of it becomes apparent although a very minimal song it has a big impact and her voice is beautiful 10/10

2.Mushaboom - The lead single that promoted the album the title is from the name of the harbour in her home town of Halifax,Canada it reminds me of something Joni Mitchell would have written (think Morning Morningtown)i love the subtle drumline-like beat.This is also one of the only up-beat tracks here 10/10

3.Let It Die - Fantastic is an understatment to how much i love this song it has a very gloomy and melancholic feel a song about a relationship that Feist had to get over yet the other person keeps tryna start things up again and shes just saying 'let it die' theres no point stepping on old ground i personally think this is beautifully written and she sounds excellent 10/10

4.One Evening - The second single which a choice i wouldn't of picked not saying that i don't like it the chorus is wonderful the jazzy feel to it is excellent reminds me of Rhian Benson (remember her!) it's a cool song and is catchy as hell and will stick in your head for days 9/10
