At Transformation-The Tragically Hip

Music video off of The Tragically Hip’s latest album “Now For Plan A”, reviewed by Elliott Gallagher-Doucette.

Now for Plan A
Artist: The Tragically Hip
Genre: Rock
Rating: 4/5

Over the course of a 25-year existence, Canadian acclaimed rock group The Tragically Hip has released altogether 12 albums. The most recent of those albums is entitled “Now For Plan A”.
The 14 time Juno award winning group released their most recent album on October 2nd, 2012.
The opening song provides a very assertive start to the album, opening with a distorted bass line quickly followed by feedback guitars. Although the sound may seem aggressive, the album is able to offer something on the lighter side as well with the album title track, “Now For Plan A”. This slow ambient song features Sarah Harmer on backing vocals.
This album offers everything a hardcore “Hip” fan could want: crunchy guitar riffs, Gord Downey’s wailing vocals and the occasional reference to Ontario’s small towns in the form of the song, “Goodnight Attawapiskat”. The song is somewhat reminiscent of The Tragically Hip’s classic song, Bobcaygeon, and its haunting melody about a small rundown town takes you straight to the mouth of The Hudson Bay.
This album is available on ITunes and in record stores. It can also be streamed on Soundcloud at soundcloud.com/the-tragically-hip.
