    Canadian singer-songwriter Leslie Feist first gained prominence working with the Montreal shock-rapper Peaches and later the Toronto-based collective Broken Social Scene, but with the release of 2004's masterful LET IT DIE, she embarked on a solo career that quickly eclipsed her previous work. Following the pleasant but inessential remix album OPEN SEASON, 2007's THE REMINDER is Feist's true follow-up to LET IT DIE, and it deepens and solidifies that album's strengths. Combining jazzy torch songs with acoustic, folkish ballads, THE REMINDER is as quietly powerful as her Broken Social Scene bandmate Emily Haines's equally subdued solo debut, KNIVES DON'T HAVE YOUR BACK, but with a jazzy edge that recalls Nina Simone on tunes like "Sea Lion" (a standard also recorded by Simone) and the lush single "My Moon, My Man."

  • Critic Reviews
    Rolling Stone (p.114) - Included in Rolling Stone's "50 Top Albums of the Year 2007" -- "Feist reaches out with gorgeously lovelorn ballads..."
    Spin (p.85) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[L]isten through headphones and the album offers up bits of subdermal weirdness, as in 'Honey, Honey,' where luscious harmony vocals tangle with field-recording white noise."
    Magnet (p.96) - "Even from a secular point of view, it's difficult to characterize Leslie Feist's voice as anything but a divine gift."
