Electric Version (2003)

EW's GRADE
A-

Details Release Date: May 06, 2003; Lead Performance: The New Pornographers

A couple of years back, this Canadian collective released the crackerjack Mass Romantic, and countless indie-rock fans -- and critics -- finally learned how to dance. Electric Version may be a bit less delirious at times, but it's still christened with that same sort of mystical, pop-hook abracadabra that results in happily ingratiating tunes like ''From Blown Speakers'' and ''The Laws Have Changed.'' Perfect for anyone who appreciates both Shoes and Nu Shooz.
