The Tragically Hip
In Violet Light (The Tragically Hip)

By: Alex Steininger

The latest from The Tragically Hip, In Violet Light, is a solid roots-rock-gone-pop collection, a steady stream of clean-cut, safe rockers and lighter acoustic numbers. Its weakest link is its safe, steady approach of music, the fact that it never takes a chance and, after all these years, has the band content, so content they make no attempt to even try something outside their comfort zone. And though it is a comfortable album, one fans of the band will surely enjoy, new comers may wish to look elsewhere if they want to experience anything other than suitable music to play when you're not really paying attention. I'll give it a C.
