Who: Broken Social Scene

Album: You Forgot It In People [Arts &Crafts]

Based: Toronto

Players: A true musical collective comprised of as many as 14 musicians, guitar duties are split amongst several members. It’s difficult to ascertain who does what, as instrument credits are not provided.

Why You Should Care: Like a novel that takes more than one read to fully understand—but ultimately satisfies more than you ever imagined it would—You Forgot It In People may take a few listens to comprehend. It is, however, well worth the ride. From delicate folk ballads to crashing guitar parts to ambient instrumentals, it’s a moody, almost fragmented work that manages to pull itself together upon further listening. But don’t just take my word for it, You Forgot It In People won the 2003 Juno Award for Alternative Album of the Year.
