Regarding the album title, Xiu Xiu singer Jamie Stewart said, To forget uncontrollably embraces the duality of human frailty. It is a rebirth in blanked out renewal but it also drowns and mutilates our attempt to hold on to what is dear. FORGET is both the palliative fade out of a traumatic past but also the trampling pain of a beautiful one's decay. Xiu Xiu is Shayna Dunkelman, Angela Seo and Jamie "Butch Jenny" Stewart.

FORGET" is probably Xiu Xiu's best pop-centered album yet. The production is hauntingly gorgeous, the lyrics are painfully sad and Jamie's voice makes it all the more emotional, probably some of their most emotional songwriting in a long time. Fav Tracks: Faith, Torn Apart; Wondering; Get Up; Forget; The Call; Petite. Xiu Xiu's newest output after their eerie interpretation of the Twin Peaks soundtrack is one of their best albums yet, from a pop standpoint. With a group as versatile as Xiu Xiu, expectations are a pretty tough thing to have, but mine were blown away. Jamie's heartbreaking lyrics and harrowing voice make Forget all more bone chilling than I thought it would have been. The fuzzy, sometimes house-like, electronic production is easily the best aspect of this album; it brings a more modern vibe.

This is Xiu Xiu's magnum opus thus far.
