In 2005, after years of collaborating with pals like Peaches and Broken Social Scene, the spotlight finally fell solely on Leslie Feist-her voice and charm so powerful that nobody cared that most of the songs on Let It Die were covers. On The Reminder, which she recorded with a gaggle of dudes (including Julian Brown, Mocky, and Jamie Lidell), everything's her own, barring a raucous take on Nina Simone's "Sea Lion Woman." Again, Feist's eclectic tastes make for a giddily schizophrenic album. As she jumps from tender ballads ("So Sorry") to BSS-fevered pop jams to torch songs, she sets herself up for another runaway success. "I feel it all," she sings, and you will too.
