So I decided we're going to dig back a little bit to the century mark (that being 2000) when the Canadian soloist, Broken Social Scene singer, and frequent singer for Kings of Convenience (Feist) decided to put together some of her own musings together. The material for Monarch actually comes from the year that Feist spent in her home, after she suffered from severe vocal chord problems. Suprisingly, the music on this album are "typical" Feist (that is, typical if you heard Let it Die). As interesting and unique as Let it Die is, Monarch is perhaps more so as you can hear a songstress trying to find her voice, trying to find her message. Songs like "Flight #303" illustrate her ability to write catchy pop numbers, "That's What I Said, That's Not What I Mean" shows the classic crooning that you hear on her sophomore effort, and "One Year A.D" even has Feist rocking it out.

It's a diverse album for someone with such diverse talents. It's rather hard to get your hands on, I suggest checking your local record store.

Listen to Flight #303.
