I don't know exactly what a "forget-yer-skates dream" is, but I remember grabbing on to that line right away. My favourite song to listen to when sitting by the lake.

Mainstream fans gave up on relying on the Hip to deliver suitable, reflective anthems for the Canadian experience by the mid-2000s, but here in World Container’s opener we have Downie detailing a familiar Ontario cottage luxury image, all while dealing a humbling message about man’s place in nature. The title track “My Music At Work,” opens the album with the quintessential Hip song: so abstract it’s universal, and undeniably catchy but still hard-rocking. So hard to decide which is actually my favorite! — Brad Frenette, It must be daunting to follow up such a critically successful record as Trouble at the Henhouse, but 1998's Phantom Power continued to deliver some of the Hip's most-loved songs: "Poets," "Bobcaygeon" and "Thompson Girl." Pure Hip. It is a priority for CBC to create a website that is accessible to all Canadians including people with visual, hearing, motor and cognitive challenges. An outstanding beginning...

Trouble at the Henhouse’s closing sequence was inspired by the birth of one of Downie’s children, and it’s a deeply meditative slow burner that rides a faint raga guitar and a lumbering beat into the desert of the mind.
