I had to pad an order on Amazon to get the free shipping (Freaks&Geeks
is great BTW!) Took a chance on this one due to the reviews and the
fact that their from Montreal. Very catchy, very good! You can hear all
the influences mentioned. It deserves to be HUGE.

I am sure it will be revealed I have had given this on one of the many
discs of MP3’s that’s been passed around, about 11 months ago! Oh well
you gotta support CDN music!!


From Amazon.com
With pretty synth lines; chiming, chugging guitar riffs; the right
influences for a rock band, circa 2003 (the Smiths, Echo and the
Bunnymen, the Cure , New Order, Radiohead, U2, Chameleons) and another
sexy singer with a melodramatic, soaring tenor, this well-hyped
Montreal band could very easily be another lame Interpol cover band.
But the Stills are far more than the sum of their influences; they’ve
actually recorded one of the best debuts of 2003. The first clue that
this band is for real lies in their songcraft–hear the soaring “Lola
Stars and Stripes” once and you want to hear it again. Hear it again,
and it’s stuck in your head all day. Check out the words (“We all need
to feel secure, we’re so middle class/ But I’m still waiting for next
week’s chemical blast”) and you realize Logic deals with topical
issues, such as the aftermath of 9/11, in a way that’s neither cheesy
nor histrionic. It’s definitely ironic in parts–they’ve stolen the
title for their moody “Let’s Roll” from Neil Young’s ill-fated tune of
the same name, for instance. But this is still soaring, meaningful pop
music. –Mike McGonigal

On their debut album Logic Will Break Your Heart, the Stills are
stubbornly unyielding when it comes to being put in the same class as
the Walkmen, Interpol, and the like. The Stills aren’t boastful in
doing so, but they are indeed different and stylishly unlike their
counterparts. The modern sound of Logic Will Break Your Heart is
undoubtedly rooted in post-punk threads of the Cure and the Smiths, but
the Stills create something that’s partly glamorous and fully
imaginative. One will notice that they’re still a young band and
bright-eyed in developing a sound that’s magical and solid to them.
Their Rememberese EP barely hinted at such, but the charm of songs such
as “Lola Stars and Stripes” and “Changes Are No Good” indicates that
the Stills are on to fully realizing what they’re capable of. They
flirt with a dark, art-pop design not unlike Interpol, but the Stills’
approach is tangible. Singer/guitarist Tim Fletcher gives a warm,
haunting delivery as the band molds a blackish romance throughout the
dozen-track set. Guitarist Greg Paquet complements his passionate
presentation with his strict, aggressive playing style, in turn
manifesting the Stills’ dreamy kind of rock & roll. From the shimmering
synth beats of “Ready for It” to Dave Hamelin’s surging percussion
crash on “Animals and Insects,” Logic Will Break Your Heart is posh
enough to stand alone. The Stills were so intent in writing and
recording a vibrant new sound and they succeeded. As songwriters,
there’s an innocence dancing with a bittersweet fantasy on Logic Will
Break Your Heart. It’s a fantastic pop record and, as much as some
would like to disagree, these Canadians pulled off a sound that has
nothing to do with New York City. ~ MacKenzie Wilson, All Music Guide
