For most bands, four albums in ten years would be a guaranteed recipe for failure, a sort of musical foreplay that, frankly, takes too long to stay exciting. But Broken Social Scene
is not like most bands with their rotating nineteen-man line-up, each of them bringing sounds and styles from various side projects, and their enviable ability to create just about any kind of ambiance they want. So it's fitting that fans not only will flock to pick up the band's first LP in five years, Forgiveness Rock Record
, but even more so that whatever lapse in recording has passed seems to have been worth the wait.
