Great band with alot of memorable songs. Calculation Theme, Police and the Private, Hustle Rose and Empty are probably my favorites.

metric is phenomenal! ive seen them twice, a few days before live it out's release and at the end of july at wakestock in toronto. both shows were epic. all three of their albums a really good in their own special ways - but live it out would have to my most favourite.

ive heard some things about them releasing a new album sometime this fall - ive heard a couple songs from their live shows, they are extremely good.

I really didn't know about Metric until last month when I saw them @ this small ****tail lounge-type venue in NY. They were really amazing. After the show, I purchased Old World Underground and Live It Out. I love that one song Empty.

emily haines in broken social scene was FANTASTIC.

also, if you are all fans of Metric, check out Mother Mother (both on the same label - Last Gang records) - you will not be disappointed.
