There's little doubt that the Tragically Hip are sick of being called "the Canadain R.E.M.," but it's just so much fun to say. Besides which, there's a grain of truth to the appelation. The band's ringing guitars, intelligent lyrics, and rich, driving sound would garner them a welcome among fans of Stipe and company, but the Hip do have gheir own identity. That identity has made them a big deal in their homeland for years (their first album was released in 1987). Their smaller but still fervent stateside following turned out in droves to pick up IN VIOLET LIGHT which offers everything from the hard-rocking, Stones/Replacements-like bravado of "Use it Up" to the quirky, evocative "It's a Good Life if You Don't Weaken."
