Thrid album by Metric. Live it Out sounds heavier than its predecessor, but it’s not my cup of tea. And I’ve tried all albums by them so far.

My fav tracks are Such A Joke and Where Do You Run To.

I’m listening right now to the biggest 2008 surprise, Elephant9.

A norwergian trio who dare to build a sound inspired by Miles Davis ( Bitches Brew), ELP (Tarkus) and Mahavishnu Orchestra.

Everything is just perfectly right. There’s no much to say, whoever knows one of the foresaid names will just get this album and enjoy.

10/10. Surely one of the greatest 2008 albums.
