    Quality album. Nicest people in the world and even better live now with new people. A thing for me and heartbreaker are two of the finest songs of the last few years.

    Amazing, an incredible album that realizes that fun music can also have thoughts, can experiment, have a little IDM on it and also be pop and obscure at the same time. Without any doubt one of the most interesting and entertaining records of the year for me.

    Metronomy sounds too much like a joke to me... Sorry, can't relate to music makers that dun take themselves seriously to come up with tracks that sound refreshing and intriguing. Honestly, they sound like tired old geezer 'musicians' that recycle other ppls' sounds tat plays very close to the indie rock genre.

    In terms of Electronic music, there is nothing new from exceptionally basic loops and copycat rhythms from Chk Chk Chk and LCD Soundsystem. And these copycats are the only mediocre tracks of the album. Otherwise, it's totally a waste of time.

  1. While the record confirms the outfit as a fully-fledged trio, the vocal numbers bring Mount forward as a decent front man with the necessary charisma, and enough variety in his voice to bring decidedly varied results.
  2. It’s a sleeping giant of a dancefloor creeper that will be everyone’s favourite new electro album in approximately six months’ time.
  3. The result is an album that, unquestionably, marks him out as one of the UK's most promising new producers.
