180gm vinyl LP pressing housed in a gatefold sleeve. Short-listed for the 2009 Polaris Music Prize, Metric's fourth studio album Fantasies was written mostly in exile in Argentina with only a piano and guitar, recorded mainly at the band's own Giant Studio in Toronto and mixed at the legendary Electric Lady in NYC. It's gilded surfaces and textured density - a heady amalgam of psychedelia, electro and rock - evoke a certain dreamlike quality. There's nothing small or careful about Fantasies - it's a full-on bid for pop glory.
