TK #44: Sloan – Never Hear the End of It (2006)

It takes a set of stones to even try to pull off a near-seamless suite of thirty songs in seventy-eight minutes, but to pull it off with such utter conviction and perfect execution is a towering achievement. The veteran Canadian power-poppers aren’t cowed by the influence of the Beatles; instead, they take Abbey Road as an idea to be expanded on. This silver disc is chock-a-block with ideas the way Manhattan is packed with tall buildings, each gleaming in the light and casting their own long shadows.
