I'd thought it would probably sound like the very best combination of "Fantasies" & "Pagans in Vegas" (separate reviews left for each, as well as "Synthetica"); it doesn't. There's a promise on the way, yeah [Pre-Chorus] Pleading self-defence but the story's old Metric’s 'Art of Doubt' may be their 7th entry, but it’s far from Heaven. Emily Haines does challenge her vocal range as much as she did on 2005’s 'Live It Out' but overall the echoing guitars and light synth sounds too much like Metric-light. What's this? Both have that early, post-punk, raw sound, so if you are a fan of the band's early offerings, you will love those two tracks.
The album also contains a song called “Risk”, and Ulrich Beck, along with famous sociologist Anthony Giddens, developed the term ‘Risk Society’, which is “a society increasingly preoccupied with the future (and also with safety), which generates the notion of risk,” whilst the German sociologist Ulrich Beck defines it as “a systematic way of dealing with hazards and insecurities induced and introduced by modernisation itself (Beck 1992:21)”. "Dark Saturday", in particular, reminded me of the very first time I heard Metric, when they opened the 97x Next Big Thing in December of 2009, as the first band at 10 AM and about 75 people in attendance, and "Stadium Love" starting to thump over the speakers.....that same feeling of immediately sitting up and taking notice and saying "WHO is THIS????" ART OF DOUBT is the newest METRIC masterpiece, filling out their recording history splendidly! While album standout “Risk” delivers a slick and insistent groove with lyrics about trying to cut through layers of emotional distance--too many tracks find themselves lacking the enticing hooks that fuel so much of Metric’s appeal.
Haines’ belts out nightlife scene where wealthy people brag that they’re “so rich, everything is free.”.
"Art of Doubt", for me, required about four consecutive listens before it really started to grow on me. I cannot tell you how many CDs I have played and the 1000s of CD returns for many reasons - valid or not - that I have had to deal with.
Now or Never is an okay song and gave me enough hopes in the return to the formula that made Metric one of my favorite bands. Singer Emily Haines has made it clear that the “guitars are back in full force” on Art of Doubt, but the synth still pops at the perfect time, giving the album a slight cyberpunk attitude that matches Haines’ riot girl vocals and the synthetic vs. organic tone of the tracks.
After the slightly underwhelming Pagans in Vegas, Art if Doubt is a stunning return to form. [Verse 1] No, I won't let my heart give out Yeah it's true, I push too hard I guess On 13 September NPR published a live stream of the album. Reviewed in the United Kingdom on February 17, 2019. No, I won't let my breath run out [Pre-Chorus]
It gets better with every play. In an interview with Exclaim!, singer Emily Haines explains the themes on Art of Doubt, as well as the title’s origin: The first time I ever heard anyone use that term [the art of doubt] was as a description of my dad’s [poet Paul Haines] work, and I thought that was such an astute assessment.
Songs like "Dark Saturday" and "Art of Doubt" are whip-smart rockers that punch like heavyweights, with Shaw laying down spiky guitar and Haines pushing her vocals to the far edge.
Being binge listening to it A LOT and it's actually pretty damn good.

Patient listening and it quickly became one of my favorite Metric CDs, Reviewed in the United States on October 31, 2018. Seven Rules. I don't believe what they say Analyzing the disc, it is very evident that the disc was never encoded/burned. The listing was subsequently removed. [Pre-Chorus]
You said "don't let your breath run out" And when it DID take hold, I became obsessed with it's brilliance.
[Chorus] M. Metric Lyrics.
[Verse 2] One of their best.
Not only does ART OF DOUBT deliver, it surpasses my wildest dreams! It took me a bit to figure out what I liked about it so much, and here it is in a nutshell: It plays like a retrospective of MOST of their CDs, whether that was the band's intention or not. Metric’s 'Art of Doubt' may be their 7th entry, but it’s far from Heaven.
