The Dears

Thank You Good Night Sold Out

Published October 21, 2004.The DearsThank You Good Night Sold Out(Maple)While Montreal’s The Dears feed buzz with a world tour, Canada gets a live album. The band’s studio sets may be lusher, but there is extra oomph here in the guitars and singing. Fans yelling “Woo!” have a way of deflating those sensitive Smiths-like wails. Optimum enjoyment may need a few drinks or puffs to absorb the careening brilliance of the 22-minute “Pinned Together, Falling Apart.” Stretching out and amping up The Dears has a levelling effect that thankfully passes. —Doug Taylor categories: Canadian artist
