"Passport Radio" - Broken Social Scene

This will never fade in my mind. It doesn’t matter how many years pass by, I will always remember exactly how I felt the first time I heard it.

Kevin Drew “You In Your Were”

“You in Your Were” is perhaps the album’s most beautiful song, with lovely backup vocals from Leslie Feist and Drew’s haunting line, “You can run but you can never, ever live a lie.” Their vocal interplay instantly recalls the immediate chemistry of You Forgot It in People. These final songs heavily feature synths and piano, creating immensely affecting atmosphere. - Consequence of Sound

Then there’s “You in Your Were,” an unsettling reverie punctuated by vaguely math-rock guitar arpeggios. It’s a look at the power of lingering memories, and what it means to hang on, perhaps obsessively, to a memory — a topic that has doomed many songs to the high-concept dungeon. Drew avoids this fate through inventive, continuously unfolding guitar and synth textures. The song is one long rousing crescendo; its surging rhythm, which recalls Neon Bible-era Arcade Fire, gathers momentum like a plane on the runway. Everything is hurtling forward, except for those words Drew is singing about looking back, and the contrast is just strange enough to sound like genius. - NPR

“album highlight” - Under The Radar

Like that seminal group’s greatest quieter numbers, the melodies sneak up on you, as on the hauntingly beautiful, Feist-assisted “You in Your Were” with its lasting “You can run but you can never, ever live a lie” refrain. - National Post

Tracks like lead single “Good Sex” and highlight “You In Your Were” carry the same heart-tugging weight as any You Forgot It In People cut. - Exclaim
