CD Review: Stars

The North (ATO)

comment

Stars came up in the same Canadian indie-pop circle as Broken Social Scene. In fact, the groups often shared membership. Now that all the buzz has settled, the Montreal quintet keeps its ambitions relatively simple on its sixth album, as Torquil Campbell and Amy Millan trade vocals on retro-synth songs like "The Theory of Relativity." The dozen songs average about three and a half minutes each – pure pop for late-summer 2012.
