In October of 2002, Broken Social Scene released their sophomore album You Forgot It In People.
 

 
The record saw the Kevin Drew and Brendan Canning-let band expanding their sound from ambient instrumental music into a full-blown 11-person collective.

You Forgot It In People was universally acclaimed, landing at the top of many year-end best of lists. In fact, it was even named one of the best albums of the 2000s by Pitchfork staff.

The album also featured members like Feist, Emily Haines and James Shaw of Metric, members of Stars, and more, who went on to become Canadian indie rock heavyweights.
 

 
You Forgot It In People was released as a joint effort between Canadian labels Paper Bag Records and Arts & Crafts, and after selling out its initial pressing, they released a reissue with wider distribution.

Not only did the album launch BSS into indie superstardom, but it also helped propel the careers of the band’s many members.
