Details Release Date: Oct 04, 2011; Lead Performance: Feist; Genre: Indie Rock; Production: Interscope

Ever since her giddy ''1234'' appeared in a 2007 Apple ad, Leslie Feist may be best known as That Canadian Lady Who Sold a Billion iPods. So it figures that you'll need ear buds to fully appreciate each string pluck, acoustic-guitar strum, and Oxford-shoe stomp. Metals, which borrows from jazz and blues, is an artfully arranged opus with such natural beauty, it should be certified organic. As for cruelty-free? Judging by her anguished vocals, not so much. B+
