Tegan and Sara grow on new album

Tegan and Sara have always made good music. Their earlier work was more indie and not as interesting. Then in 2007 they released The Con. They had their breakthrough,, catchy hit "Back in Your Head." Then two years later they released their next album Sainthood. The album mixed the new wave of their last few albums with some punk numbers ("Northshore," "Hell). The album was one of their best and with their new album Heartthrob, the sisters really outdo themselves.
The album goes in a more synthpop direction and this works for the girls. Songs like the first single "Closer" and the album's best song "Goodbye, Goodbye" have a dance sound that are sure to keep people on their feet. The album also has it's share of new wave ballads. The gorgeous "I Was a Fool" and the haunting "Now I'm All Messed Up" pack a wallop of emotion.
The album doesn't have any bad songs and ever song is memorable. Other highlights include "I'm Not Your Hero" and "I Couldn't Be Your Friend." Tegan and Sara have always been great at writing catchy, songs that pack emotion.
This album is a great next step in the career of a band that are always growing and evolving. This is what a band should do.
