Entry from a diary, June 10, 2010:
I’m going through another impassioned Sloan phase.  Ever since I got their latest EP, it made me realise that some of the best music they’ve ever made has been in the last 5 years.  They absolutely redeemed themselves after Pretty Together and Action Pact, tenfold.  They’re getting old, but not haggard, they’re not giving into their age and longevity and making crappy music anymore.  Young people can still identify with their work.So anyway, there are a certain lump of songs I’ve been listening to frequently.  The best of what’s new, and the golden oldies that compliment their mood.  A lot of their best work is well hidden in their albums, and this playlist is a tribute to the songs I had overlooked.  There are a couple of hits thrown in there too for extra bursts of energy, but it was not intentional.  They’re great spring/summer songs jam packed with superlative harmonies and juicy instrumentation.  By some small coincidence, you’ll find that sections are completely dense with Jay sweetness.  As a result, I was tempted to call the playlist “Sick of Patrick” but I’d hate to defame Patrick that way, publicly.  Man, do we love being Canadian.  To put it simply…
Sloan is SO good.
