Tegan and Sara's 25 Favorite Albums

The New Pornographers Mass Romantic (2000)

Tegan: "This record came out in 2000. Mass Romantic was important not only because of the songs (which were all fantastic), or the instrumentation (because it influenced us to want more keyboards in our own music), or the style of music (truly the start of what was to become an education in "indie rock/pop" bands from Canada), but because of the production.

"It was the first time in our history that we sought out the producers of a record to have them work with us. JCDC agreed to produce our next record (If It Was You). This was a major turning point in our career as a band. If It Was You was our first foray into pop songs and the world of keyboards! Stand out track: 'The Body Says No.'"
