3.5 greatAggravatedYeti | February 2nd 09

lol Broken Social Scene solo outings, they're always pretty good, but they're always pretty scattered. Canning is able to bring himself out beyond the shadow of his BSS counterparts, but he does this mainly by purveying his key (natural) sound. He's the community man, and he shows it in full here. Taking the core BSS sound and building upon it (much like Kevin Drew), Canning is electric. 'Something For All of Us', 'Chameleon' and 'Possible Grenade' are the stand out rockers, 'All the Best Wooden Toys are Made In Germany' is a heaping of prog-indie bliss while 'Churches Under the Stairs' is one of the best BSS associated tracks ever. Canning leans more towards the commune feel, as opposed to Drew's reserved whispers and croons. And while Kevin turned up his vocals, Brendan chooses to wash his voice much like his bands albums. He's softer, more pleasant even, and what seems to be the obligatory "girl spot" on these 'BSS Presents' is held by Amy Milian (elegant and powerfully). 'Something For All of Us' makes sense really, I'm yet to meet someone that finds nothing to love here.
