8/10 Stephen Customer review, 25th April 2017
Feist’s third album, “Metals”, is arguably her best. It opens with “The Bad In Each Other”, a sparse, dusty guitar and percussion arrangement which builds towards a swelling chorus with brass, strings and soulful harmonies from all girl vocal trio Mountain Man. The use of Mountain Man as backing singers is a real plus for this album. The choir-like refrain at the end of “Graveyard” is one of “Metals” best moments. They add depth and power to “The Undiscovered First” and “A Commotion”. Throughout the album when Feist plays acoustic guitar the vocals match her soft strum, whilst her electric guitar sends distorted spikes through songs like a clipped version of Neil Young. It is a great album, but the two highest points deserving of special praise are “How Come You Never Go There” and “The Circle Married The Line”. The album is well paced, fantastically arranged and beautifully dynamic.
