acafan Right out of the gate, this opening song grabbed me. I have several Sloan albums, but hadn't checked in for a while, so I was pleasantly surprised to hear that they're still writing great pop-rock tunes. Favorite track: Spin Our Wheels.

DaveTanner30 Saw Sloan on the "12" tour and the whole night was killer. One of the best bands ever. Favorite track: Spin Our Wheels.

Oddball It always amazes me when a band can produce such a fresh album this far into their careers. As the boys push past 50 and their voices begin to falter with age, their sound shows no signs of failing. They pull together for some tight harmonies in a mode that's a little more rock and roll than most of the Yep Rock era. This might be their second best album of the millennium. Favorite track: Right to Roam.

nyaki425 I am an Essential Worker in the Far East. We work full time in an environment where we must never infect visitors, and we must never infect ourselves. Many songs on this album are helping me to find hope. I already have the digital album, but I wanted to keep the CD with me. Thank you. Favorite track: Essential Services.

about

That title isn’t just some random number. 12 is indeed the 12th album from Canadian power-pop perennials Sloan, which means it’s as good as Led Zeppelin IV, Black Sabbath’s Vol. 4, and Chicago 4 all put together. But seriously: not only are Sloan the rare band to make it to their 12th record, and not only are Sloan the rare band to make it to their 12th record with all four original members, and not only are Sloan the rare band to make it to their 12th album with four original members who are equally prolific songwriters, they’re arguably the only band to make it to their 12th album with four original members who are both equally prolific songwriters and all still working at the top of their respective games, sounding utterly ageless in the process. On 12, each of the four principals contribute three stellar songs that play to their core strengths: Patrick Pentland with the soaring rock anthems, Chris Murphy with the playful, participatory sing-alongs, Jay Ferguson with the jaunty prog-pop gems, and Andrew Scott with the whimsical innerspace explorations. Says Murphy, “I guess with the album title, we are showing off the fact the we have 12 records.”
