Metric played the Letterman show on Friday, offering up a take on “Help I’m Alive” from their recent release Fantasies. PopMatters’ Daniel Rivera says, “Half an art-rock opus, half a post-pop frolic, Fantasies finds Metric and their illustrious front woman at a pivotal moment in their career. ‘If I stumble / Their gonna eat me alive,’ Haines confesses on album opener ‘Help, I’m Alive’. The LP follows suit with this type of self-effacing frankness, but goes a long way in not abandoning its more labored pathos.”
