Too Feisty for Me


I've done my rant about Amy Winehouse, and got that off my chest. Now let's focus on something more controversial in this day and indie age. Feist. I don't like her music. I don't get what the big deal is. Yeah, "Mushaboom" was cutesy. The Ben Gibbard remix was even better. I truly believe Broken Social Scene was the backbone of her musicianship, whether it be their co-writing or the all around music accompaniment. Her version of "Lover's Spit" is brilliantly beautiful...so...what happened from there? After a few listens, I realized how bare the album is, as if she were to have recorded her part, then ran off to her BSS friends to add to it, and then realized "Ooooh, it's a solo album". Quit with the cutesy lyrics and stripped down instrumentals Leslie; jump back on the piano and start listening to Norah Jones or something.

You may be pleased to know that your Amy Winehouse rant did offend me because it was so flimsy, petty, and ultimately pointless. The replies were more offensive, though, in terms of stupidity.

your commentary on feist only reveals that you have passed judgement on her without listening to enough of her music carefully enough to catch what's brilliant about it, so i remain confident in my assertion that she has produced probably the best album of the year so far.
