KMA14 Tragically Hip – World Container
Welcome to another instant Hip classic, whether people ultimately pay attention to it or not (and if you don’t, especially if you’ve grown jaded, you should be ashamed!). Such a release is still an event in this country, for those of us who know a good thing when they see it.
Here we have a strong first single, experiments with island beats, Gordie’s poetic rantings and soaring vocals,and Just Great Rock Songs with driving drums and stellar guitar licks. These songs will, I know, kick serious ass in a live setting (whether it’s a small club gig, or an outdoor show with 50,000 of your closest, sweatiest friends singing along). The new songs will meld seamlessly into the rest of the repertoire, creating an even greater whole, not just more of the same. In short, it’s another Hip record. Don’t tell me you still have questions.
Walk, crawl, stumble drunkenly or get your Mom to drive you to the mall so you can grab your copy of the new Hip. Remember that I told you so. This is important. There will be a test on this material later.
