You Forgot It in People [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Lydia Vanderloo
Canada's reputation for inventive underground rock -- think Vancouver's New Pornographers or Montreal's Godspeed You Black Emperor! -- gets another boost from Broken Social Scene, whose sophomore album, You Forgot It in People, took the title of Alternative Album of the Year at the 2003 Juno Awards Canada's Grammy equivalent. And the disc clearly earned its trophy, making of its influences something inventive and markedly tuneful.

Barnes & Noble - Lydia Vanderloo
Canada's reputation for inventive underground rock -- think Vancouver's New Pornographers or Montreal's Godspeed You Black Emperor! -- gets another boost from Broken Social Scene, whose sophomore album, You Forgot It in People, took the title of Alternative Album of the Year at the 2003 Juno Awards Canada's Grammy equivalent. And the disc clearly earned its trophy, making of its influences something inventive and markedly tuneful. Broken Social Scene take two cues from their Canadian brethren in Godspeed: First, they're a large conglomerate whose numbers are difficult to count though ten names are credited on this disc; and second, they have an energizing, anything-goes spirit. Unlike those alt-prog-rockers, however, BSS craft shorter songs with vocals. Key touchstones include Sonic Youth, whose unique tunings and abrasive guitar duels inform songs such as "KC Accidental" and the spastic "Almost Crimes Radio Kills Remix," peppered with squawking horns and a powerful chorus. Elsewhere, BSS suggest the British dream-pop of A. R. Kane the cool, arty "Pacific Theme" and the unusual vocal phrasing of the Sea & Cake's Sam Prekop the rhythmic "Cause = Time". Rather than a collection of cool referents, however, You Forgotot It in People plays like the music's next logical step -- and you'll definitely want to be along for this ride.
All Music Guide - Sean Carruthers
After the release of Feel Good Lost, Broken Social Scene became a bit more collective, swelling from two members to ten plus guests and dropping their ambient instrumental approach in favor of full-blown rock songs. As you'd expect with such a dramatic rise in membership, there's a lot more variety this time out. The first two tracks mirror the band's transformation perfectly; in fact, the first is a fairly airy instrumental number with a Mark Isham-like feel, while the second slams it off the rails with a driving beat and wailing guitars. Main members Brendan Canning and Kevin Drew even sing this time around, while Leslie Feist and Emily Haines -- both of whom became Canadian stars after this release, which effectively fueled interest in Feist's solo albums and Haines' work with Metric -- assume lead vocals on other tracks. According to one of the members of this incarnation of the group, trying to determine "who did what" on this album would warrant an entire review in itself, as everyone took turns playing different instruments and the whole project was built from the ground up in a very collective fashion. Listeners who prefer the ambient pop of Feel Good Lost may be put off by the all-over-the-map approach, but You Forgot It in People is a more accessible release overall, and it helped set the stage for Broken Social Scene's international breakthrough in 2005.
