I have loved this album, I had it when it came out and I listened to it incessantly. It had the kind of magic to it which I associated with all the great albums I have appreciated over the years. Somehow I lost it, but kept the feeling it gave me in my memory. After buying it again now I can still see what attracted me to it but the magic had fallen away. I don't know what it was because even at the time the reason I liked it was elusive. I guess I changed but the music didn't follow me, unlike that of Arcade Fire's Funeral or Cat Power's The Covers Record. I guess I forgot it in Broken Social Scene.
