Sloan  

The Double Cross (Murderecords)

sloan-review.jpg
When I think of my relationship with Sloan over the last two decades, I can honestly say I never expected the band to give me musical epiphanies or change the world. But I did expect consistency— in creating catchy, clever rock and roll, giving up hit after hit with no surprises. That is exactly what the band has done over and over, and again with The Double Cross. After all this time, Sloan still (thankfully) claims no false pretension, doesn’t aspire to make lame rock-opera musicals (I’m looking at you, Green Day), preferring instead to deliver on what it knows best. Good on ya, boys for sticking it out and finding ways to make hits without sounding passe.

Survey Asks

Should Nova Scotia revisit its fracking ban now that an Energy Department analysis has found $20 billion worth of natural gas offshore?

  • Frack, baby, frack!
  • No amount of money is worth the environmental damage
  • Let’s invest in renewable energies instead
  • Depends how much cash I, personally, will receive
