The great thing about Metronomy is that their career is a journey....you don't quite get the same thing each time round. This, their remarkably titled debut, shows a sound miles away from the pleasant pop of 'Love Letters'. It's wild electronica with fuzzy guitar riffs and nary a vocal in sight. First time on vinyl from this previously much sought after artefact.

7/10 Jimmy Smith 8th January 2018
For many people who are fans of Metronomy, this album goes fairly unnoticed. In fact some people may not even know it exists. This is because it is very different to their later music. It is almost entirely instrumental with the exception of the track 'Trick or Treatz' which incorporates eerie and glitchy vocals. A lot of this album sounds like it has been influenced by synth based bands such as Yellow Magic Orchestra or The Human League. The only thing that may put people off this album is that is much more of an acquired taste then their other albums, but if that does not put you off then you will love it.
