About this album

Grow Up and Blow Away was the first recorded album by indie rock band Metric. The album was recorded in 2001, but delayed for years by their record label. As the years passed, the band’s sound changed to the point where they no longer felt the album would be what the fans expected to hear, so Metric recorded a completely new album, Old World Underground, Where Are You Now?, and released that instead. Last Gang Records later purchased the rights to the album and released it on June 26, 2007.

    This album is just so full of character compared to their newer releases. I used to listen a lot to this, Old World Underground and Live it Out 7-8 years ago, but even then this one was my favourite, and it is their only album that I still like to listen to. Too bad they didn't continue with this line of music, but at least Emily's solo work is somewhat similar in style and spirit.

    The best album by Metric. If you say it's should stop lying to yourself.

    I should have listened to this earlier, but it's never too late i guess.

    Its also my favorite Metric album. Sad lyrics and up beats. Soft Rock Star takes me to somewhere else...
