An album that you can enjoy knocking boots to as much as you'll love screaming down the freeway doesn't come along often. So when we picked up Fantasies ($10), the fourth studio album from Metric, we knew we'd found a keeper. This kick ass mix of electronic, punk and indie rock boasts sexy, angry, volatile lyrics ("All the guns and all the gold—and all the lace and all the skin in the shop couldn't get you off") that we can't get enough of. The entire collection is rockin', but if we had to pick, we'd vote for "Gimme Sympathy" and "Gold Guns Girls" as repeat-worthy tracks.
