The Tragically Hip (seriously look these guys up if you like rock\classic rock and haven't heard of 'em)
One of the best pieces of advice I've taken away from this board, in 7 years on here. Thanks again, Canadave! tomalak301, based on the rest of your list, I'd encourage you to take the man's advice. I know I certainly am glad I did. I started listening to them about what? 5 or 6 months ago, Dave?
That sounds about right. And you're welcome, once again! I'm always glad to spread the love. And if you are actually interested, tomalak, I can recommend a few songs to you.
As can I!

I wonder if they'd be the same songs?

Broken Social Scene
Metric
I'm glad I'm not the only one on this board who knows who these groups are. When I was introduced to them and come on here to talk about it, I thought I was. Metric is alright (Emily Haines has a great voice though) and I do know of one of Broken Social Scene's members, Jason Colett who has soothing music but has gotten a bit boring.

There is no doubt, Emily Haines carries the whole band. Metric always seems a little off to me (not performance-wise), sometimes cheesy, but I like their style.
That's my problem with a lot of those bands. The lyrics might be good, but the song tune sounds boring and lacking of energy. I can only take those groups in small doses, even if the lyrics and style are good.

Metric have some songs with more energy, Combat Baby and Succexy for instance. They also mix it up a lot, go back and forth within the single songs.
