The Tragically Hip’s latest album, Man Machine Poem, is likely to be their last. Recorded before Gord Downie’s cancer diagnosis and produced by Broken Social Scene’s Kevin Drew and Dave Hamelin, formerly of the Stills, the album takes its name from a song on the group’s previous release, 2012’s Now for Plan A. The set lists on the Hip’s final tour have been changing for every show, but one of the most.
The Hip's self-titled debut album is blanketed with a roadside texture that is interesting because it harnesses their music in its rawest and earliest stages. Gord Downie has not yet mastered his poetic rigidity or his soothsayer approach to obscure experiences and events here, as he does on future albums. Songs like "Cemetery Sideroad" and "Highway Girl" may lack the lyrical depth or conceptual tapestry that Downie later evinced, but the overall coarseness is what causes this debut album to seep with some slightly unsophisticated allure.
The first outings comes through tracks like "I'm A Werewolf, Baby". The track "Last American Exit" sounds like it could have come from their accomplished Road Apples album. The album includes the bonus track "All Canadian Surf Club". 180 gram audiophile vinyl.
