Metronomy “Love Letters”

We love both the wonky “Nights Out” and MOR smooth groove of “The English Riviera”, so expectations have been understandably high for album number four. And. It’s somewhat underwhelming. Much has been made of the stripped-back arrangements, and it has somehow removed something that made Metronomy great – but we sense that ultimately the songs aren’t firing-up the ear candy. The single “Love Letters” and penultimate track “Reservoir” are ace, but we’re not yearning to play the album again any time soon. Which is kind of sad.

6/10
