Great article over at Exclaim! by Cam Lindsay:
There aren’t many bands that have recorded 12 albums with all the original members contributing equally to the songwriting. With their brand new album, 12, Toronto-based Sloan have achieved something that not even the Beatles – arguably the greatest musical democrats ever – managed in their time. Sure, the Fab Four may have averaged two albums per year they existed, but they could only hack it for a decade. Sloan, on the other hand, have survived 27 years together, which might just be the most impressive feat of all.
