[Live It Out] is my favourite Metric album because it sounds the most like the people who made it: beautiful, witty, angry, pissy, endlessly energetic; gifted with punk virtuosity and a belief in pop and an incredibly strong desire to connect, for better or worse. In My Favourite Metric Track Ever (capitals intentional folks), ‘Monster Hospital,’ Emily [Haines] famously sings ‘I fought the war/ but the war won.’ What a lot of people don’t know is that when it comes to Metric, that was the plan all along. They don’t want to win. They just want to say they were there, and that they f—ked with it. That’s what they mean when they tell you to live it out. See?
