The Tragically Hip
-World Container-
By Bob Silvestri

World Container the latest release from The Tragically Hip features some of their strongest material to date. The trademark twin guitar sound of Rob Baker and Paul Langlois is present as is the thunderous rhythm section of Gord Sinclair and Johnny Fay and the poetic caterwauling of Gord Downie is right in the mix but this time out the band augments the sound with plenty of keyboards courtesy of Jamie Edwards for a new twist to the Hip sound. Plenty of passion to go around as evident on the tracks “Yer Not The Ocean”, “Fly”, “Last Night I Dreamed You Didn’t Love Me”. A couple of tracks benefiting the aforementioned keyboards include “Pretend” and the title cut “World Container”. The stratospheric “The Lonely End Of The Rink” and the pop sound of “In View” are standout out tracks also. Two tracks destined to be Hip classics are the dark and sinister “The Kids Don’t Get It” featuring one of Downie’s vintage vocal rants and the driving cynical lyricism of “Family Band”.
