The slick electro-edge that began on The Con really robbed Tegan and Sara of the breathtaking intimacy they'd achieved on their previous record, So Jealous, and what was ultimately their greatest strength. Lyrically they chose to go more "abstract" on this record, but it just comes off like freshman poetry workshopping.

They added a lot of new wave and volume to "so jealous" that wasn't there on "if it was you", but the hooks were slightly lost in the process. "The Con" represents the best of their last 2 albums, with all the quick-to-the-point hooks of "if it was you" and the attitude and energy of "so jealous" melded in one. No second is wasted to dawdle. Every minute is an energetic ode to the forlorn and sexually repressed (woman).
