Jason Collett Reckon Arts & Crafts. Jason Collett keeps turning out amazing songs regardless of his high-profile as one of the lead members of Broken Social Scene. The impressive opening song, Pacific Blue, immediately gets your attention with its sweet and precise acoustic finger picking followed by great vocals and a well-realized orchestra string section. As I get through this album on my sixth spin the tunes start to sink in. High praise can be given to the following tracks: I Wanna Rob a Bank, a fun and catchy tune that depicts a man who’s clearly had enough and just wants to rob a bank, it brings thoughts of retro action cop & robber films from the ’70s and ’80s, it grooves hard and is totally danceable; Miss Canada, a song telling.
Jason Collett, Album. Other albums by Jason Collett. Collett doesn't rant on Reckon, and the subdued tone of this music hardly makes it sound like a call to arms, but he's more than capable of making himself heard without shouting, and the artful dynamics of the music reinforce the intelligent disdain of the music. If Collett sometimes sounds like he's viewing these events from a distance, he sees some details the folks in the thick of the action might have missed, and Reckon is a statement that hits hard (and close to home) if you'll give it a careful listen.
