The new Emily Haines solo album appears to be to Metric as Feist is to Broken Social Scene. Which is to say, probably not for me. I rather like Metric, and their live show is well worth catching. Interestingly, the metaphor-laden pitchfork review indicates that Metric's songs were supposedly about "sweaty fucking." Ok, if that's the case they should have followed Big Black's lead in album name and cover art.
